When you move to another country to study there is a lot to think about. The Ƶ of Worcester offers an incredible opportunity to study in a city that is the perfect size to navigate and develop your social life, whilst offering an excellent academic experience. 

Our Welcome to Worcester webpages offer plenty of information about starting your study at Worcester as well as social events over your Welcome Period. Be sure to check out these pages regularly as we update them with new events and information in the run up to the Welcome Festival period. 

Once you’ve received and accepted your offer to study with us, and your CAS, UK visa and accommodation are organised, there’s a few more things to think about: 

  

Preparing for success

 is a learning website for international students who are getting ready to travel to the UK for study in higher education.  

You can choose 'study pathways' if you would like to search by skill or topic, practise your language skills, find out about cultural differences, or find out about individual aspects of academic life in the UK by searching for them on the site. 

International Induction

The International Induction is our opportunity to welcome you to Worcester and the UK and to prepare you for your time with us. 

International students are invited to attend an international induction during which you will have an opportunity to get over jet lag and begin to address any culture shock you may be experiencing as well as meeting other international students and getting to know Worcester and the UK.  Experience has shown that attending this induction is very valuable and an indicator of future success.  During this time, you will meet the International Experience team and learn about the support they can offer during your time studying with us.  

International BSc Nursing students are expected to arrive earlier than students studying other subjects. 

What support is available to me?

As an international student, you are a member of the university family from the start and have access to all the same excellentacademic, emotional, and practical support as home students.  However, we recognise that while moving to the UK to study is exciting, getting settled into a new country with different languages, food and currency can also feel daunting. We have created a specialist  to help you. 

Centre for Academic English and Skills

Once you arrive in the UK you can improve your academic English and language skills by utilising the support offered at our Centre for Academic English and Skills. The Centre runs pre-sessional English courses for improvement before your lectures start and academic English courses, including one-to-one sessions.
