    Worcester Uni is a former teacher training college now established as a university college, transfering to full university status in the next couple of years. For more vocational subjects and the sport related academic subjects, Worceseter is pretty good and the city (although I wouldn't say it is a particularly big city) is fairly good, with a few decent clubs. However, in terms of pure academic subjects there such as Psychology, Worcester isn't particularly good and especialy not very well known.

    Due to the fact that the Uni is also fairly small, there are only a few halls of residence, and u will find that many of the students are fairly local so it won't be particularly busy at the weekends.

    Basically, Worcester is good for the more vocational subjects and sports related subjects but not realy anythin else and if you want to be in a party lovin place especialy at the weekends, you probably won't find that at Worcester either.

    One of my friends goes there and is really enjoying it - she's just finished her first year. What are you going to be studying? She is doing an HND in Outdoor Recreation Management (?!)...I know, it sounds like a silly course and it is, but if she enjoys it then fair enough! There isn't that much to do in Worcester but it's quite a nice city, some decent shops, pubs, bars etc. The union is pretty good as well apparently. The employment figures (96%) seem good and the Uni mostly consists of students studying Education-related courses.

    I've heard of it, it's not that bad I guess. It's quite cool that Worcester university college will have a university status. Another new university after Bolton achieving a university status.

    Yeah most of the students @ Worcester are doing teacher training....my friend normally lives in London and she enjoys it there so the nightlife can't be that bad...
