The University is a truly inclusive place where every person counts as an individual. From designing imaginative facilities to providing practical support and tailored learning, we strive to help people of all backgrounds and abilities to achieve their own rich potential.
We work hard to break down barriers and provide opportunities for all. In 2020 we were the winner of the Times Higher Education Award for Outstanding Contribution to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion. Worcester is home to Europe’s first integrated university and public library, The Hive, and Britain’s first inclusive indoor sports hall purpose-designed to include the wheelchair athlete, the University of Worcester Arena, two facilities that exemplify our commitment to inclusion.
Our commitment to supporting students’ wellbeing was recognised in being shortlisted for Outstanding Student Support in 2018 and 2019 in the Times Higher Education University Awards, and we are regularly identified as a best practice example in this field. We believe in educating and supporting the whole person to succeed in their own personal endeavours but to also use the skills they develop to build a better world.
