The University of Worcester (UW) is a medium sized University based in the city of Worcester and is the only University serving the counties of Worcestershire and Herefordshire.

The University aims is to ‘make a truly transformative contribution to the lives of our students, staff and the people in our region and to make a very positive impact in society more broadly’.

UW was one of the most improved Universities for research in the Research Excellence Framework 2014. As UW and student sport continues to grow and evolve, we aspire to be a leading sports programme among UK HEI’s.

The UW portfolio encompasses an extensive range of specialist sport facilities and laboratories (BASES accredited) for training, competing, teaching and research. All of which underpin elite athlete provision on a daily basis.

To compliment the iconic University of Worcester Indoor Arena the University completed purchase of a 50 acre outdoor activity centre in January 2016. The Lakeside campus has created the opportunity for athletes to engage in open water swimming, paddle sports, triathlon, long distance running and road/off-road cycling. As this new facility is improved to accommodate the demands of the 21st century athlete it will only serve to enhance UW’s outstanding reputation for sporting success.

After re-joining as a TASS Delivery Site in 2015, our ongoing aim surrounds an athlete centred approach, so enabling us to fully support each individual on their journey through education and elite sport.

As part of the TASS delivery network the University of Worcester offers all of the core support services to elite athletes delivered by experts within respective fields , such as Strength and Conditioning, Physiotherapy, Sport Massage, Lifestyle Support, Nutrition and Psychology support.
