Worcester College UK Offer-holders 2021:

7th January 2021

Many members of our college community and beyond have expressed their concern for the potential impact of yesterday’s A Level results on this year’s incoming students. At Worcester we made offers in 2020 to our most diverse cohort ever, and in response to the uncertainties surrounding this year’s assessment, we have confirmed the places of all our UK offer-holders, irrespective of their A-level results.

College flag at half mast
9th June 2020

The College Flag flies at half-mast today in honour of Rob Dennis, Head Chef 1995-2019, who died at home on the weekend, surrounded by his family. Our thoughts are with them.

Rob joined Worcester as Sous-Chef in 1993 and was promoted to Head Chef in 1995. He played a major role in the refurbishment of the College kitchen, his pride and joy. He retired on grounds of ill health early last year.
