Bangladesh Flag

Bangladesh

Students from Bangladesh will receive a warm welcome from staff and students at the University of Wolverhampton.

The city is home to a large South Asian community, which makes up 17.5% of the city’s population – so you’ll feel right at home mixing with people from your home country, as well as making friends with students from the UK and other parts of the world.

Experience home away from home by sampling award-winning Bangladeshi cuisine, among other eating out options in the city, or sign up for a society (including the Islamic Society) to meet likeminded students. An unforgettable student experience awaits you.
