We have got a good number of African students, joining our International Community every year. Please read what some of our current students are saying about Worcester.
Joseph Musasizi, Commonwealth Scholar from Uganda
MSc in Advanced Social and Health Care Studies/Advancing Practice
My name is Joseph Musasizi, I am a student pursuing an MSc in Advanced Social and Health Care Studies/ Advancing practice. I am a Ugandan from Sembabule district and I joined the University of Worcester in September 2010. There are a number of scholarships awarded at University of Worcester such as, the Commonwealth Shared Scholarship Scheme for students from commonwealth developing countries, of which I was fortunate to be allocated one.
Prior to joining University of Worcester, I was looking for a well-known university for international graduate employability. I feel confident that the University of Worcester has provided me with enough skills and knowledge to compete internationally for a future employment. This is a great opportunity for both my personal and my country’s development.
Apart from academic support, University of Worcester organizes conferences which students can attend and also supports them to attend other external events.
For example, I have attended the “Inaugural Conference of the Centre for Ethical Leadership” on 12th –November 2010 at the University and “Commonwealth, Human Rights and Democracy” on 11th - 13th March 2011 at Cumberland Lodge London. In addition to conferences, University of Worcester is known for organizing trips, which help international students to get familiar to different UK places, especially those with tourist centres. For example, I have been to Birmingham, Manchester, Malvern Hills, Bath, Oxford and Cardiff capital of Wales and more are coming.
Based on that, I have every reason not to regret my decision of joining University of Worcester, and I would recommend it to anyone!!!
