The City of Worcester is located just 30 miles south west of Birmingham on Britain’s longest river, the Severn. The University of Worcester is located centrally and takes advantage of the relatively small size of the population and city as well as an attractive and historical town centre. Shopping is well catered for with three retail parks and three shopping centres as well as the high street where most major retail chains have a presence. The nightlife is energetic and reasonably varied whilst transport around and in and out of the city is good.
