Every Story Has a Start

At the University of Wolverhampton, we have exceptional alumni across the globe doing incredible things. We want to shout about their achievements, so get involved and let us know what you think about our latest campaign to shine a light on our amazing graduates: Every Story has a Start.

High achievers from the worlds of literature, business, sport, film and the arts feature, sharing how their lives and careers have developed since their days studying with us. 

Watch the first videos with New York Times bestselling author Abi Daré; Oscar-winning visual effects master Manolo Mantero; and Deana Uppal, an award-winning humanitarian and philanthropist.

More alumni videos will drop later in the year, so keep your eyes peeled, and be inspired. 

Start Your Story

I believe that every story has a start and mine certainly started at University of Wolverhampton, it was my landing spot coming into the United Kingdom… the confidence, the resilience, the desire to keep pushing myself, to believe in myself all came from that and I am so grateful for that amazing opportunity.
