The University of Worcester has a fantastic Careers and Employability Service, which is open to all current students as well as those who have graduated within the last three years! It offers several different types of advice and help that can be really useful to take advantage of during and after your time at the University of Worcester.
When I go back to my first year, I remember that the reality check showed I needed a part-time job to cover all of my costs. Money were flying away as it was the year of exploring Worcester, travelling around England, my new home, attending many social events and buying all the books I needed for my course.

I’m very proud to say that during my time at Worcester I have done a lot as a Drama student and as an Ambassador. I co-run weekly drama workshops at The Hive, I assist in drama open events, I’ve assisted with youth theatre and the National Theatre Connections project and I’m also employed as an actor!
As you know from my profile, I do a lot of voluntary work in my spare time working with children and adults with special needs. It all gives me good knowledge and experience to pursue my dream of being a Special Needs teacher.

My opinion about work experience…
This blog post is written by a work experience student sharing his opinion and tips about work placements.
HI, my name is Kieran and I’m a year 12 student based in the marketing department on work experience. Here, I’m going to suggest to you why I believe that work experience is vital for anyone, whether it be in year 10, year 12 or at uni itself, as getting used to a working environment in an area in which you are interested in is vital for you future.
Work experience is essential for anyone in life, as it gives them a stepping stone into work, whether it be a paid placement when at university, or just an unpaid internship over a summer holiday at the end of your A levels. Any experience in a field that you are looking at going into is priceless, especially when looking for a job is concerned. Potential employers like to see that an applicant for a job at their business has had relevant experience, even if it is not a very long time, any experience is better than none at all.
Whilst at university, it can feel like there is no time to do anything other than studying, and definitely no time to have a job and earn any money! But there could be a scheme that could interest you where you can earn money when it’s convenient for you. You could sign up to be a Student Ambassador.
