The University of Worcester recognises the importance of dual careers and has committed to providing a facilitative environment for such athletes for many years. The TASS Dual Career Accreditation is an exciting new step in our commitment to recognising and supporting dual career student athletes. As a university we endeavour to provide holistic support to help nurture success for athletes combing study with high performance sport.
Students attending the University of Worcester as dual career student athletes can study courses from within one of our nine schools, including; allied Health and Community, Arts, Business, Education, Humanities, Nursing and Midwifery, Psychology, Science and the Environment and Sport and Exercise Science.
Worcester has undergone significant change and growth over the last few years, expanding into new subject areas, more than doubling student numbers and investing substantially in staff and new facilities. In recent years, the University of Worcester has developed a genuine reputation for excellence in inclusive sport. Worcester developed the UK’s first sports venue purpose designed to include the wheelchair athlete, the University of Worcester Arena. The University is now working on creating the world’s first purpose designed indoor inclusive cricket centre, with strong support from the England Cricket Board and England Disability cricket.
As a University, we have a multi-purpose indoor sports centre, two floodlit synthetic pitches, an exercise physiology suite, two further sports science laboratories, nutrition laboratory, teaching rooms, gymnasium and dance studio. Major developments also include the Riverside Building and the award winning 2,000 seat Worcester Arena. The Arena is Britain’s first indoor sports hall purpose designed to include the wheelchair athlete and regularly hosts major sports tournaments.
Our innovative Motion and Performance Centre is situated on the St John’s campus has expertise in a wide range of areas, ranging from Physical Activity, Exercise and Health to Biomechanics and Sport and Exercise Physiology.
