Advice on travelling to Worcester and what to do when you arrive.
The nearest airport (45 mins) to University of Worcester is Birmingham International Airport. This is a regional airport and usually very easy to arrive at and quick to get through immigration and customs. If you can, we advise you book a flight which brings you into Birmingham.

Air travel guidance
Please note that immigration procedures at Heathrow can take up to three hours to complete.
We advise Non-EU students not to come via Republic of Ireland as you will not have the required visa stamp put into your passport. If you do come into England via this route it is essential that you ask to see a visa official before you go through customs. They will then give you the required entry clearance. Failure to do this will mean that you will be asked to leave England and re-enter.
