What makes us different

The University is a truly inclusive place where every person counts as an individual.  From designing imaginative facilities to providing practical support and tailored learning, we strive to help people of all backgrounds and abilities to achieve their own rich potential. We work hard to break down barriers and provide opportunities for all.

We believe in educating and supporting the whole person to succeed in their own personal endeavours but to also use the skills they develop to build a better world.

Worcester has one of the best records of graduate employment in the Country. 96% of Worcester graduates are in work or further study 15 months after graduating (Graduate Outcomes Survey 2022) and Worcester is the number one English higher education institute (excluding specialist institutions) for sustained employment, further study, or both, three and five years after graduation (LEO 2022).
