For over 180 years, the University of Wolverhampton has been providing students with a first class education.
More than 500 courses help enhance student learning opportunities alongside award-winning teaching, state-of-the-art facilities, international partnerships, strong business links and world-leading research at the university’s main campuses in Wolverhampton, Walsall and Telford..
In its most recent assessment from the Quality Assurance Agency – the university equivalent of Ofsted, the university received a commendation for ‘the enhancement of student learning opportunities’. Achieving its best ever results in the most recent Research Excellence Framework, which independently assesses the quality of research conducted at universities, all 14 research centres put forward had elements rated as ‘world-leading’, recognising the impact of their work in the real world.
The University’s Our Vision, Your Opportunity programme aims to generate £250m investment by 2020 to enhance the student experience and boost the economy. The fruits of this epic investment can already be seen in modern new facilities including the £18m new home for the Business School and £21m Rosalind Franklin Science Centre. Development of a new science, technology and prototyping centre has begun at University of Wolverhampton Science Park.
The Science Park is home to over 80 businesses and in addition to office and workshop space, provides an incubation unit for start-up companies and conferencing facilities to businesses. Further areas of investment include new courses and facilities for engineering at Telford Campus, a stunning new food court and landscaping at City Campus in Wolverhampton, and an extensive multimillion pound programme of digital upgrades.
The former Springfield Brewery site in Wolverhampton is being developed into a national centre of excellence for construction and the built environment.
The super campus is home to the West Midlands Construction University Technical College, as well as the university’s School of Architecture and the Built Environment, delivering an unbeatable skills pathway for construction education and training.
The most recent Destination of Leavers from Higher Education survey revealed 96.3 per cent of the class of 2016 were employed or in further study after six months – putting the university fifth in the UK for graduate employability.*
The SPEED programme, led by the University and partfunded by the European Regional development Fund, aims to support current students and graduates to set up their own business, with 208 new businesses and over 400 jobs created since 2013. There’s never been a better time to get in involved with the University of Wolverhampton.
