    Overall:
    I did not expect it to feel like home after 2 weeks!! Everything is better than I expected!
    University:
    Library is amazing and has everything you could ever need including teaching materials used for school experience placements. The night life is vibrant and buy but you do not feel threatened walking home. The welfare provision is very effective and there is a huge support network for students.
    Course:
    It is an amazing course with numerous opportunities!
    Location:
    Lovely city. City campus is amongst everything you could imagine. It is a safe but vibrant city.
    Accommodation:
    There are many different prices ranges but my halls are new and quiet and very modern. The maintenance is very good and things get fixed quickly. Accomodation is fairly expensive but similar to other university's.
    Settling in:
    This is my home now. I love everyone here and my flat is like a family. I spend much more time in the kitchen than in my room and my flatates couldn't be more supportive.

    Overall:
    Fantastic!
    University:
    Worcester is a little town . So eventually at university everyone gets to know each other. They are all so friendly and kind. Also there is a little shopping centre and many little coffee shops which is great.
    Course:
    It's great because the the timetable is good. We have placements once a week each week , rather than having block placements. I feel this way it's more beneficial. Also the tutors are lovely and generally the people in Worcester are so friendly.
    Location:
    There's a beautiful river by university so we can take full advantage of that and take part in rowing , also there is lots of rural area so we also have an equestrian society which is great.
    Accommodation:
    I don't live in university so I really don't know to be honest
    Settling in:
    Everyone was so lovely and welcoming and ice breaker sessions were great

    Overall:
    Sick uni for the course, very cosy but could do better if you're looking for some culture which isn't white middle class people, that goes for the town and the uni students.
    University:
    Uni is good night life is a bit bait
    Course:
    Small tight knit course with attentive staff
    Location:
    Close to city, good rail and bus links
    Accommodation:
    Was given some rundown house for extortionate prices with mould and damp.
    Settling in:
    Nice place not perfect

    Overall:
    My university experience overall is great it's made me independent and outgoing I'm happy I came to the university of Worcester
    University:
    My uni is split into two campus and I'm in the St. John's campus and not city campus and because of this it's a long way from the city. However it's fairly near to the student union and health facilities such as a gp.
    Course:
    I love psychology and would love to do a career in it someday. My lectures are great and engaging. My timetable was a bit confusing at first but I've gotten used to it.
    Location:
    I'm happy with where my university is located this is because it's not in a very busy city but it's also not close of from the city.
    Accommodation:
    My accommodation is great I love it. The university accommodation team is very helpful also. However my accommodation isn't conveniently close to the uni so I have to walk a while to get there. It's also a bit pricey but overall it's great.
    Settling in:
    I love my accommodation so it was easy to settled in also the uni organised many activities to help me settled in.

    Overall:
    So far the experience has been incredible, I am so glad I chose this university.
    University:
    A large range of societies and clubs, the su are very helpful and provide lots of information but the fitness facilities are very central with more than one gym.
    Course:
    The lecturers are very approachable and personable, delivering the lectures in a simple yet interesting way that allows students to understand and feel comfortable to raise a topic if they are unsure about something. This allows students to feel at ease and at home.
    Location:
    The city of Worcester is beautiful and the location is perfect, not too far away from home and close to major cities such as Birmingham. The distance from the uni to the city centre is the perfect distance, allowing me to do some exercise with the walk in but not too far.
    Accommodation:
    all factors of the accommodation are good.
    Settling in:
    The student ambassadors were rest to roll from the off set, helping my parents and I unload the car and making the move in process simple. The various activities ensured that freshers left their rooms and joined in the activities, mixing with other students.

    It's a really nice uni
    University:
    Everything is available
    Course:
    I'm still finding my feet with the course
    Location:
    It's a nice city but it's hard to drive around and it takes a while to get to the university with the traffic
    Accommodation:
    The people in my class living in halls have all spoke positively about the accommodation
    Settling in:
    I still feel like I'm trying to settle in

    Overall:
    I'm loving every second of it! Everyone is so friendly and it's a great place to be!
    University:
    Good facilities on offer, a lot of student offers for the SU bar and shop
    Course:
    It has a wide variety of courses to choose from
    Location:
    It's out of the town centre so it's not to busy and if you wanted to go into town it's only a short walk.
    Accommodation:
    The room is big and not too expensive in comparison to other universities I looked at
    Settling in:
    The SU and student services are always on hand to help you out with any problems which is very helpful!

    Overall:
    Nightlife doesn't compare to universities based in bigger cities eg Liverpool, Bristol etc. But still can be a good night out if you make it a good night out and learn where the cheapest alcohol deals are! Great uni in terms of my course not sure about other courses.
    University:
    Campus is small but homely, SU always has good events on etc, shop incredibly overpriced but that is typical for uni shops.
    Course:
    The lecturers are enthusiastic in what they are teaching, and have a genuine intent to ensure you get the most out of your university experience. Also the simulation equipment is top class.
    Location:
    Good facilities within walking distance and good bus routes.
    Accommodation:
    Far too overpriced for what you get.
    Settling in:
    The university ensured there were ambassadors to help you settle in.

    Overall:
    Overall university of worcester is a good university with good facilities however I would highly recommend looking elsewhere for paramedic or health care related universities. This university is not equipped or staffed to deliver health care courses to a sufficient level
    University:
    Good variety of sports and societies Regular events in the su bar Good pastoral support from onsite student services Easy to acces students union advisors
    Course:
    Timetables lectures frequently cancelled and not replaced Rooms too small for group size Insufficient equipment for practical sessions Poor feedback from assignments Insufficient exam prep Rude and dismissive lecturers Lack of availability for 1 to 1 thtorials
    Location:
    Close to city centre and night life. Easy to commute to Birmingham
    Accommodation:
    Variety of accom axiom available on campus with a range of prices Modern accommodation in en suite blocks
    Settling in:
    Lots of activities during freshers week
  • by Anonymous on 27th August 2015
    Overall:
    Overall a brilliant university with a quickly growing reputation.
    University:
    Worcester as a whole is great the only downside that really annoyed myself was the fact that the uni library is located in the city centre and is not located in the main campus.
    Course:
    The labs are well equipped and the level of teaching is exceptional. Tutors regularly give you additional help in their own time to help you understand difficult concepts. The lectures are both engaging and highly challenging and prepare you for further study well.
    Location:
    Worcester resides next to the beautiful river seven and has a very distinct heritage.
    Accommodation:
    The location is superb and has a clean modern look about it. Prices are suitably reasonable.
    Settling in:
    Freshers week accompanied with the universities location and modern campus means there are plenty of opportunities to mix and explore making settling in incredibly easy. The campus is fairly small and so you get to know the place quickly.

    Overall:
    Absolutely amazing- I am so happy I chose Worcester!! Small University but has a lot to offer.
    University:
    University life is amazing! There is a range of societies to cater for all not just sport clubs, and if there is something in particular you want for a society, it's easy to set one up with friends. Library is fantastic, despite locals habing access, the university has a range of schemes particularly around assignment period to help students. There is a wide range of resources on offer at the library; there is always a book on offer that can help. At the hive there are always university staff to help with references, finding appropriate journals and to help with proof reading your work.
    Course:
    A variety of modules to enable a specific route to be followed, including: primary pe specialism, secondary teaching, SEND focus and outdoor activities. Lectures are always stimulating and offer practical application to all areas of theory. The placement opportunities enable first hand teaching experience with a school of choice.
    Location:
    Absolutely amazing, Worcester is an historic city which is beautiful at night. I feel safe around all areas and the locals are friendly. Just got to watch the flooding when there is constant rain.
    Accommodation:
    Its reasonable, kept clean and is maintained to a good condition by university staff. However, it's overpriced for what you receive. There is no communal area in the lower priced halls, compared to the more expensive halls which have an open communal area with the whole building.
    Settling in:
    It took me a while to get used to living away from home, but my lectures and academic tutor helped me to settle into university life.
