Zimbabwe

The University of Wolverhampton is a dynamic place to study in the heartland of the UK – and we look forward to welcoming students from Zimbabwe.

Whatever subject you’re thinking of studying, our friendly expert staff and students from around the world will help you feel right at home on campus. The city has so much to offer, from art galleries and an independent cinema to varied restaurants and a busy high street and shopping centres.

As well as supporting the city’s sports teams (go on, you Wolves!), the University’s football, rugby and other sports teams also offer a chance to play – and don’t forget, the Students’ Union has plenty of fun and interesting societies too.
