Student support

Like home students, international students access student support through firstpoint in The Peirson Study and Guidance Centre or through your SOLE page. If you have questions about accommodation, registration, fee paying, or module selection, come and make your enquiry at the firstpoint desk. If you would like to make an appointment with a Programme Advisor, a Counsellor, an Immigration Solicitor, a Disability and Dyslexia Advisor or a Finance and Welfare specialist, please come to firstpoint and ask how you can access these services.

If you are interested in Study Skills Workshops, part time employment or Study Abroad, you will find information in The Careers and Study Skills Zone within the Peirson Building.

If you would like to find out about faith groups in the university and in Worcester or if you would like spiritual advice please contact the Chaplain, Fiona Haworth, on f.haworth@worc.ac.uk (tel 01905 542327 or visit the Chaplaincy in Bredon 181.

The Internationalisation And Study Abroad team in Student Services offers additional support to international students through a separate induction programme, weekend outings to places of touristic or historical interest and some social events. The team will also support students wishing to celebrate their national days or festivals. Look out for the weekly newsletter in your university inbox to keep up with current events.

The Students' Union International Committee

The Studentsí Union has a part time International Officer and an International Committee which looks after and represents international students at the University of Worcester. International Committee officers are current second or third year students from different countries and cultures, whose aim is to enhance the experience of the new international students while settling down in the British culture, here, in Worcester.

The International Committee works with Student Services and the Studentsí Union to organise different events such as international parties and student nights out, as well as trips to various places in the UK.

The Studentsí Union has many and varied clubs and societies for you to join and meet other like minded people.w
