At the University of Wolverhampton, you are in the best place to start your musical career.

The region is home to some of the most respected music venues in the country including the Civic and Wulfrun Halls, the NEC and the Birmingham Symphony Hall, and boasts a large number of small scale venues. 

Our students have ample opportunity to display their talents, competing in national songwriting competitions, hosting annual Christmas concerts and performing at a range of venues including Birmingham's renowned Jamhouse, the Walsall Wheatsheaf and the University's Arena Theatre.
