Worcester, UK is a quaint city in the West Midlands of England that boasts a number of Tudor-style buildings and a cathedral dating from the early 11th century. Just two hours northwest of London and less than an hour to Birmingham and its international airport, Worcester is well-connected to the rest of the UK and a popular choice for students. Many interesting cities (e.g., Bath, Brighton, Oxford) and tourist attractions (e.g., Stonehenge) are within easy reach, and a designated long weekend allows students to travel further afield in the UK and the rest of Europe.  Students have been completing IQPs in Worcester since 2014. 

Past Worcester UK students have:

•Increased the environmental and financial sustainability of the Worcester Arts Workshop

•Evaluated the potential for hosting repair cafes on college campuses with the University of Worcester

•Developed a model renewable energy strategy for Wales with the Green Valleys Community Interest Company
