Jamaica

Jamaica

A warm welcome to Wolverhampton in the heartland of the UK, home to the University of Wolverhampton. For years, the University of Wolverhampton has welcomed students from all over the world – and we look forward to welcoming you too.

Choosing to study in another country can be very daunting but equally rewarding, life enhancing and fulfilling at the same time. 

We have a lot to offer you, not just as a University but as a city that is one of the cheapest cities to live, in the UK with great transport links to the rest of the country. You can also have an opportunity of living on campus and experiencing University life first hand in our wide choice of accommodation.

Meet new people in and out of lectures, with plenty of things to do in the city – and remember to join one of the Students’ Union societies such as the Afro-Caribbean Society. Great transport links make it easy to explore the UK – and other countries, too.
