Open evenings to meet increased demand

after a surge in interest from would-be students.

The University’s School of Engineering and the Built Environment (SEBE), has seen a large increase in the number of students hoping to study these subjects.

Wolverhampton is one of a few universities offering extra places in engineering, science, technology, and business subjects following the Government's ‘New Industry, New Jobs’ policy.

Bernadette Quick, Marketing and Recruitment Co-ordinator for SEBE, said: “Many students, a number of whom are mature, self funding and returning to education, seem to be very pro-active and highly motivated this year and don’t want to lose out on their chance of studying at University.

“The recession seems to have had an impact on recruitment, with a significant increase in applicants. We are responding to this surge in interest by holding extra open evenings over the next three weeks.”

SEBE will be holding Open Evenings every Tuesday and Thursday from August 25 until September 17, from 6pm-8pm at City Campus, Wulfruna Street, Wolverhampton, in the Council Room (MA221).
