Nursing MPhil/PhD


Alexander - January 2023

I completed my undergraduate and Master's degree at the Coventry University. Deciding to study for a PhD at the University of Worcester is very exciting. It is a campus based university so it creates a real sense of community. I have found the staff to be extremely supportive and inspiring. Over the next three years I am extremly excited to be studying at the University of Worcester. I believe that the University of Worcester have great facilities, they have recently invested in a new medical building. They also have a shared public library in the town. They have a number of sports clubs available and an Onsight gym. They have various standards of accommodation to suit a range of needs. The university is smaller than my previous university which I believe makes it feel more homely. The open days provide prospective students with the opportunity to get to know the university. I believe that the open days made me realise that this university is something special. The university has invested in their student support services such as finance, housing, disability and neurodivergency support. read full review
Great online resources and collaborate seminars meaning that you can access learning remotely.
Supportive course leads. read full review
Lots of academic writing support and good pastoral support systems.

Lecturers could improve timing of assignment deadlines to reduce clustering and also ensure progress is left free for self directed study so students can use it for consolidation and catch up.

My best part of my university was the follow up they gave me immediately I was offered a place to study at the university , they made me fall in love with studying with them, they never leave their students to float, it’s an amazing feeling to get help from somewhere you least expected and it’s more amazing when you get help without asking.
Another best part was their first point services, it was wonderful, smiling faces everywhere, giving one a sense of belonging.
Another best part was their induction, it was worth it, it was detailed, I have gotten anything I need to scale through with my degree and the right contacts to relate to just incase I need help.
I haven’t gotten any worst experiences yet and am praying I won’t get any
Thanks read full review

Social Work MA


Olayemi - January 2023

My best experience so far is how the staff and school have been very supportive in assisting me in my studies and settling down. They are up to date with information to help me with getting in tone with the classes I’ve missed and my accommodation.

My worst experience was getting an out of campus accommodation which took me a while due to disappointment from the landlords. I could have applied for school accommodation but I was late in may application hence, the long delay read full review
Worst aspect was covid but that couldn’t have been helped by the uni.
Best aspect was how friendly everyone at Worcester is - the students, the SU and the lecturers. It’s perfect for those who don’t want to go to a huge uni where you’re not known by even the lecturers that you see weekly!! read full review
Wide variety of opportunities.

Meals are expensive and there are no incentives to want to regularly buy from the canteen read full review
