Support for Visiting Students

We understand that study abroad can involve stress and other personal difficulties, and we are ready to assist visiting students whenever any issues arise. 

The Programme Director, Dr Michael Mayo, serves as Director of Studies and "Moral Tutor," or advisor, for all visiting students. Before the start of each term, he works with each student individually to design a suitable academic programme. He also runs orientations for newly arrived students, organizes an ongoing series of cultural and social events, and is available throughout the term to help with any and all matters. 



Worcester's JCR Welfare Reps and the College Welfare Committee look after the well-being of all students at the College, and visiting students are no exception. The team responsible for student welfare includes the College Nurse, Mrs Anne Harpin; the Dean, Dr Ben Morgan; the Tutor for Women, Professor Kim Dora; the Assistant Dean, Ms Hannah Ryley; and the Chaplain. Should students fall ill, the College Doctor is located right across the street, and the College Nurse is available daily for consultations. 

The Academic Administrator, Ms Phillipa Tarver, and her team are responsible for the academic side of College administration. If students have any queries relating to course administration, welfare, or any other aspects of College life during their time at Worcester, the Academic Office is a good first port of call.
