Information for parents (multiple languages)

At the University of Worcester your son or daughter will gain a prestigious British education, widely respected throughout the world.

The historic city of Worcester is a friendly place to live; small enough to have a community feel and large enough for there to be plenty to do.

As a parent you’ll naturally want to support your child’s education. You’ll want to ensure that they’ll be safe, secure and happy for their time studying abroad.

More than this you’ll want to be sure that they are securing for themselves a qualification they can use wherever they are in the world, a solid grounding for their careers and great prospects for the future.

At the University of Worcester we offer all this as well as great support and a warm welcome to our thriving international community.

Why study in the United Kingdom?

Studying in the UK will not only vastly improve your child’s English; it will enhance their global career prospects, ensure they get the best teaching and resources available and give them a tremendous experience that they will remember for a lifetime.

An investment in a British education is an investment in your child’s future.

At the University of Worcester we will support them every step of the way.

The University has over 1000 single study bedrooms in modern, purpose built halls of residence. Many rooms are en-suite and all have self-catering facilities. Student Assistants provide guidance and support and the security team is on campus 24 hours a day.

A safe and welcoming city

Worcester is a beautiful riverside city that combines the advantages of a thriving urban centre with the charm of a traditional English town, with plenty of picturesque countryside nearby.

The 900 year old cathedral towers over the city, with its cobbled streets and beautiful Tudor buildings. The city’s many restaurants, shops, and grocery stores are all within easy walking distance of the campus, so students find it easy to get around without a car.

Worcester is centrally located in the UK, just a few hours away from the major cities of London and Birmingham and their airports, so your child will have plenty of chance to travel within the UK and an easy route back home.

Your son or daughter’s study here in the UK will provide them with plenty of stories to tell you upon their return.

We look forward to welcoming your child to our university, and thank you for supporting them.
