United Arab Emirates

At the University of Wolverhampton, we welcome applications from students from the United Arab Emirates.

Outside of lectures and study, make new friends and get involved in activities run by your Students’ Union. Our Islamic societies are popular and our Chaplaincy offers support to students of varying faiths.

Join a University sports team, cheer from the sidelines for Wolves FC or follow the progress of the University’s very own UWRacing team. Or, if you want to unwind with friends, you’ll find plenty of coffee houses, restaurants and shops in the city.
