Today marks the Holocaust Memorial Day (27th January). To honour this day, the University has partnered with the Anne Frank Trust UK to bring a public exhibition to the Hive library.

Whether or not you’re new to Worcester, finding places to eat and socialise on a student budget can sometimes be challenging. I’m a huge foodie, and I’ve simply refused to give up on eating out. I think going out for food with friends is a very important part of social life (and I won’t miss an opportunity to have something yummy!) Here are my tips on saving money at restaurants and some of my favourite cheap eats in Worcester.
Worcester – the Faithful City. We’re a small but great city, with a population of 100k, 1/10th of which are students. From Lea and Perrins Worcestershire Sauce to Berrow’s Worcester Journal (the oldest newspaper in the world), there are lots of reasons to be proud to live in “the Woo”. In recent years, we’ve also been voted one of the safest and happiest cities in the country too! Here’s why Worcester is a great place to live.
There’s a lot of breathtaking nature and scenery in Worcestershire, not far from our University campuses. Famous names like J.R.R. Tolkien, Edward Elgar and C.S. Lewis found inspiration here when creating their masterpieces. Why not spend some quality time in nature and get inspired too? If you’re in Worcester and have a free afternoon or weekend, head out of the city centre and see all that our beautiful county has to offer.

After the end of the semester, many students stay in Worcester a bit longer for the start of the summer break. Don’t know what to do with all your free time now exams are over? If you want to relax with your mates or try something different, you can kick off your break with some great local events.
So UK Coffee Week is here, which comes quite handy as if you’re a student. You are most likely celebrating it all year round, especially during the assessment period. I am personally a huge coffee lover. I’m not an expert, but I am quite picky about my energy-boosting beverage.
