University of Worcester has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
With us, you can learn history as it's being written. Your lecturers will be the authors of some of the books you're using - and you'll even get the chance to contribute to their research. And, as well as benefiting from the latest thinking, you can learn through a work placement - perhaps in archives, museums, local community groups, schools, or a National Trust property. So you understand the relevance of history to our culture and working life.
Throughout your studies, you'll learn in small, informal groups. You'll get a lot of individual support in a very friendly atmosphere.
Guest lectures, from experts such as the historical consultant for the BBC's Peaky Blinders, Producer of Radio 4's Home Front and opportunities to attend Women's History Network Conferences
Writing retreats to help you write your dissertation, with support from staff and other students
Excellent resources, including the County Archives, based in our library, the Hive, and the Cathedral libraries in Worcester and Hereford
