Study abroad, Exchanges & Summer Schools
In today’s world where globalisation brings countries and peoples closer together than ever before, cultural competence and international experience are essential attributes. For many students a short period of study abroad, immersed in another educational system and culture can be a life changing experience, opening up unforeseen opportunities.
At the University of Worcester we encourage our home students to take up opportunities to go on a semester or year exchange, to participate in short tutor led study tours or to take up an international placement. Students, who have studied abroad, even for a short time, report that they have greater personal confidence, a more objective understanding of their own culture and an insight into other ways of being and thinking. Employers tell us that they value the skills and independence of job applicants who have experienced travel and study abroad.
For international students looking to come to the UK for a short period of study within their degree programme, we think Worcester is the perfect place to choose. The University of Worcester is one of the fastest growing universities in the UK and offers a wide range of credit bearing modules for you to choose from. The city is large enough to have a varied and vibrant nightlife, has great places to eat and drink and numerous leisure facilities but it is not so large that you will feel intimidated or lost. It is centrally located with good access to international airports and rail and road systems so you can get out and travel at weekends or after your course. It has heritage attractions and lovely parks so you can immerse yourself in the culture and landscape and have a genuine English experience.
