Advice on travelling to Worcester and what to do when you arrive.

If you can, we advise you book a flight which brings you into Birmingham. Birmingham International Airport is a regional airport and is usually very quick and easy to get through immigration and customs.

Birmingham International Airport is also the closest airport and has excellent low cost train links to Worcester. 

If you prefer to travel by taxi, it would take around an hour to drive from Birmingham International Airport to Worcester. This is a more expensive option but might be useful if you are travelling with a lot of luggage.

Once your travel plans are arranged please submit the details on CAS Shield so that we can be prepared to welcome you.

Where to go when you arrive at the Ƶ

Please remember to let us know when to expect you and can be prepared for your arrival.

If you will be living in Ƶ of Worcester accommodation, please make your way to Main Reception on St. John’s campus and a member of staff will be waiting to help you.
