Overview

The University of Wolverhampton was awarded university status in 1992 and currently has around 23,000 students enrolled, of which 2,500 are international. It is spread across four campuses in the west midlands and can trace its roots back to 1835 when it was formerly the Wolverhampton Mechanics’ Institute.

Wolverhampton has one of the highest employability rates in the country (96% are in work or further study within six months of graduation), with extensive support offered to those looking to begin their career. The University was also rated the fourth happiest in the UK (in terms of education quality, support and student-life) following a recent survey by accommodation provider Sodexo.

Wolverhampton has a historic reputation for applied research and innovation, starting with its use of what is now the oldest original functioning electronic stored program computer in the world in 1957. The University also provided one of the first degrees in British sign language, as well virtual reality design and manufacturing.

Currently, Wolverhampton encourages student start-up companies and runs projects creating work placements for entrepreneurial students. Unique courses offered include BA (Hons) Creative and Professional Writing, and BA and MA War Studies - which includes International Relations-type modules.

Services for International Students

The University of Wolverhampton runs an orientation programme for new international students at the beginning of the year. All international students are also offered free English language support during their degree, while separate credit-bearing modules are also available in academic and general English. Once you have arrived at the University, student services can assist you with university life, finding part-time work, immigration regulations, adapting to UK life and language support.
