History and Objectives

With a history dating back to 1946 when it was founded as a Teacher Training College, the University of Worcester has established a reputation for world-class teaching and practical, purposeful research.

The University of Worcester is a close-knit and high-achieving community where students are supported to succeed at every level.

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.

Worcester is home to Europe’s first integrated university and public library, The Hive, and Britain’s first inclusive indoor sports hall purpose-designed to include the wheelchair athlete, the University of Worcester Arena, two facilities that exemplify our commitment to inclusion. 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.
