Congratulations on becoming a University of Worcester student!

We know there’s a lot to think about when starting at university so we've put together this guide to help you through the process. There are also lots of useful resources, tips and activities for returning students.

Before you first arrive on campus please take a lateral flow test.

You are then expected to test regularly if you are attending campus in-person (we suggest at least twice a week).


If you aren’t yet fully vaccinated, you’ll have the chance to visit our on-campus vaccination centres when you arrive. You can get a jab straightaway (no need to book an appointment) or talk to a medical professional if you have questions about vaccinations.

Remember to download the University of Worcester Guidebook App on the App Store or Google Play.  This will tell you about events and activities taking place over the Welcome period. 

The app will provide you with campus maps and local information such as shops, banks and travel. You'll also find answers to questions often asked by first year students and who to contact for help and advice.
