Partnerships and initiatives

 

 

Our expert knowledge places us in a key position to contribute our expertise to innovative solutions for a wide range of partners.

Partnerships

We actively work with a range of partners to provide wider access to our programmes. We develop long-term teaching and research partnerships with academic institutions all over the world.

Our sport reputation also enables us to work closely with policy makers, who apply our research to the industry. We’re proud of the impact and financial benefit that our research has had on the economic development of the region and the UK.

Expanding study opportunities

Our initiatives over the past 10 years have developed new, flexible approaches to learning and teaching. These projects have been central to achieving a global presence and providing access to our degrees through partner institutions.

The ability to offer flexible modes of study is a key aspect of our programmes. Worcester students welcome the opportunity to study close to their homes through our strong network of regional partnerships.

Further afield, our expanding network of international partners has opened many opportunities for staff collaboration, student exchanges and research.

We offer the following programmes in association with our partners:
