Sport at Worcester

Whether you're interested in studying sport, participating for fun or competing at the highest level, the University of Worcester and the Worcester Students' Union is committed to providing you with the support and facilities you need to succeed.

We believe that participation in sport, at every level, enhances the student experience at a physical, intellectual and personal development level. We support a broad base of student sport at all levels, and actively promote the pursuit of excellence, participation, strength of character, teamwork, ethical conduct, and diversity. 

Student sport is inextricably linked to the University's Strategic Plan  and the high standards to which it aspires.

Sport means all forms of physical activity which, through casual or organised participation, aim at expressing or improving physical fitness and mental well-being, forming social relationships or obtaining results in competition at all levels.

As the University and student sport continue to grow and evolve, we envisage ourselves as being one of the leading sports programmes in the UK; setting the standard in all aspects of competitive and participation success, academic excellence, ethical conduct, student-athlete experience, the development and retention of coaches and staff, and the establishment of lifelong learning.

The University will continue to make student sport organisationally and financially viable for the future. We will enhance campus, alumni, and community pride while fostering collaborations that increase our profile within the University and visibility throughout the region.
