About the University
The University of Wolverhampton has a long history of providing students with the opportunities presented by a first class education.
As a major player in the UK higher education sector, we continue to excel in the areas that have contributed to our excellent reputation: award-winning teaching, state-of-the-art facilities, international partnerships, strong business links and innovative research.
Our attractive offering to students includes:
- 300+ available courses
- 95% graduate employability*
- partnerships with over 1000 businesses
- 14 Research Centres with elements rated as world-leading**
- £45m campus investment over two years
- outstanding facilities, including the multi-million Rosalind Franklin Science Building and Business School.
Today’s modern University can be traced back to Wolverhampton’s Mechanics’ Institute and College of Art in the mid-1800s. These institutions, together with teacher training and health colleges that were later incorporated, developed our rich heritage and tradition of academic excellence in vocational higher education.
We continue to be guided by our coat of arms’ motto ‘Innovation and Opportunity’ by widening participation in education and offering an outstanding portfolio of courses that challenge students to realise their potential. The quality of our teaching and learning was praised recently when we received a commendation, the highest possible accolade, following the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) 2015 review.
Our contributions to knowledge transfer, economic development, wealth creation and social justice position us as an active, pioneering institution on a local, national and global scale.
Our current offering is set to evolve even further as we aim to generate £250 million of investment by 2020, an ambitious strategy that will enable the introduction of new courses, improved facilities and innovative new ventures – all of which will create only more opportunities at the University of Wolverhampton.
