The details of support available can change, so before you apply it's best to speak to the named contact to check exactly what they offer.

Being a student at the University of Worcester means joining a community committed to ensuring your success. Whatever your background and whatever your interests, at Worcester everyone works together to ensure that you have every chance to experience the best of university life.

There are a number of professional services that you can access to support you, and to help you make the most of your time here. Our student support service, counselling and mental health service, and your personal academic tutors all have a wealth of knowledge and experience.

In our student support and wellbeing service, we assist students with any welfare issues that may be affecting their time at Worcester, and we are also able to facilitate students with accessing specialist services both within and outside the university if appropriate.

You are invited to contact the student support and wellbeing service at any time, either prior to your arrival or at any point in the year, to put support in place that is tailored to your individual requirements. Whether this be an email once a term or a weekly meeting with a student support adviser, it is up to you. We also have a twice weekly "Fancy a Cuppa" event where you can have a chat over a cup of tea and biscuits.

Our university-managed accommodation is available all year round, and even during the summer months when many students leave, our programme of activities, opportunities for work and community feel all continue.

Our support services operate all year round, as do the services of the students' union – the whole team are on hand to offer whatever support you may need. 

Making Worcester your home means more than just choosing a place to study, this is a university where you can grow, develop and be part of making a difference to your own and the opportunities of others.

In addition, money advisers will help you in making applications to any other potential funding sources, for example many of our students with a care background have made successful applications to the care leavers' foundation fund.

At Worcester we encourage students to make the most of their university experience, and we offer a range of paid work opportunities through our earn as you learn scheme. Students can work as ambassadors, coaches, mentors and an array of other opportunities, which will contribute to your career development and be relevant to your studies.
