UNIVERSITY OF WORCESTER
The university - a friendly, bustling community with approximately 9,500 students - is a single, self-contained campus, surrounded by extensive playing fields and recreational facilities. University of Worcester is the fastest growing University in the UK with applications rising a full 100% in the last 5 years.
It is small enough to be friendly, but large enough to offer a wide variety of attractions, including a magnificent cathedral, an eighteenth-century guide hall, landscaped parks, and river walks. The county of Worcestershire is steeped in tradition and folklore, and village life continues within the many hamlets surrounding the city. In Worcester, the old sits comfortably with the new, and the city, like the surrounding towns, boasts modern shopping centers, specialty shops, restaurants, theaters, leisure facilities, and traditional English pubs.
Courses are offered in a variety of fields. To see the course availability, please visit this link then click the "modules" tab to see the courses available.

If you do not, you will be refused entry to the United Kingdom. Please discuss specific visa information with the program coordinator, Dr. Jessica Mulvihill, prior to your departure.
|“From as far back as I can remember, my dream was to study abroad in England. The spring semester of my sophomore year, I spent 5 months in Worcester, England and finally got my chance to experience the true feeling of being independent and away from my comfort zone. This opportunity allowed me to gain a new perspective on the world, and experience true diversity from traveling around England, as well as to Ireland, Wales, France, Holland, and Italy. I was even fortunate enough to have a few friends from home and IUP visit me while I was in England. Studying abroad changed my life and not a day goes by that my experience in Worcester and traveling doesn’t cross my mind. If going abroad is something you’re remotely considering, go for it! You won’t regret it.”
