Want to know why so many students love living and studying in Worcester? Our open days are the perfect way to find out!

As well as exploring our campus and facilities, you will have the opportunity to meet staff and students, learn valuable information about university life, and get answers to any questions you may have.

Planning your day

Open days at the University of Worcester are flexible, and you can plan your day to suit your needs. Our key talks run throughout the day, so you don’t have to be the first through the door to find out about study choices, accommodation options, student financing, and other important University information.

Our open days are based primarily at our St John’s Campus, where you’ll get the chance to explore our newly refurbished halls of residence as well as touring the campus itself and its state-of-the-art facilities.

You can also hop aboard our shuttle bus for the five-minute ride to our City Campus, home to our Business School. During the journey, you will get a real feel for the city as the bus passes our sports and performance facilities at the Riverside building the University Arena, our creative arts facilities at The Garage, and our magnificent joint university and public library, The Hive.

As well as discovering all that the University has to offer, be sure to visit Worcester's vibrant city center, brimming with riverside bars and cafes, stylish shops, museums, theatres, and dozens of green spaces and parkland.
