The rise in applications at Wolverhampton follows the launch of
Learning Works, a new undergraduate course portfolio. The
University reviewed all its courses to make sure they are suited to
student needs and demand.
The new portfolio is designed to provide students with the key
skills and knowledge they need for the world of work. Students will
also be offered a work placement, the opportunity to run their own
businesses, volunteering, mentoring, or an international study
visit, to prepare them for employment.
Jane Nelson, Pro-Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs, said: “We
are very pleased with this positive increase but we are still at an
early stage in the applications process and would encourage
potential students to apply.”
