Belize

For years, the University of Wolverhampton has welcomed students from all over the world – and we look forward to welcoming you from Belize for your own international educational experience.

We understand that the prospect of studying in a new country can be daunting but our international community at Telford Innovation Campus, along with our friendly staff and students, will help you feel right at home.

Take part in student activities or sports and join a Students’ Union society to meet likeminded people – and remember to explore Wolverhampton and the rest of the UK in your free time, for memories you won’t forget.
