Spend an exciting academic year living and taking courses at the University of Worcester (UoW). The city of Worcester (pronounced wuster) is beautifully situated on the banks of the river Severn near the picturesque Malvern Hills. The city is built around a magnificent 11th-century cathedral and was a key battleground in the English Civil War. Centrally located in the heart of England, Worcester is a 2 hour train ride to London. With a population similar to the size of Duluth, Worcester blends the ancient heritage of a quaint English town with all the characteristics of a big city.

With a history dating back to 1946, the University of Worcester has established a reputation for world-class teaching and practical, purposeful research. UoW is a vibrant, forward-looking university, well known for the quality of their degrees and for employers actively seeking out graduates. UoW delivers degree programs to nearly 10,000 students and employs 1,000 staff. UoW has undergone significant change and growth over the last few years by expanding into new subject areas, more than doubling student numbers and investing substantially in staff and new facilities
