Transferring to the University of Wolverhampton

At the University of Wolverhampton, we have a large portfolio of courses available for students who want to transfer and complete their studies with us.

Transferring from one university to another is simple, and the information below will explain how you can do it.

Firstly, to be eligible to transfer and gain an advanced entry offer you will need have achieved one of the following:

  • Studied at another higher education provider
  • Completed a higher education qualification
  • Achieved teaching credits from a higher education qualification
  • Spent five or more years in a management position in the subject area that you are interested in studying with us

At the University of Wolverhampton, you can apply directly to us.

Please be aware that to be successful in transferring to us for advanced entry you will need to provide us with the following:

  • An academic certificate for your studies.
  • A transcript showcasing the modules of your previous course.

Once we have received your application and supporting information, we will assess with our faculty teams to define whether the content of your studies aligns to the course you would like to transfer onto.

Where similar study is apparent, it may be possible for us to award recognition of prior learning (RPL). In this situation, advanced entry onto a course will be offered to you.

Due to the nature of this process, it can take slightly longer while we gather evidence and work with faculty staff to get you the correct answer.

All applications are considered on an individual basis.

All degree courses are broken down into several modules. Each module has a credit value, and from an undergraduate perspective each academic year usually consists of 120 credits. A credit value for each module showcases the depth of that module, and modules can vary in size but usually range between 10 and 60 credits.

Learning outcomes are key teaching themes which specify the knowledge areas a student should understand and have demonstrated through each module assessment. These are usually found in your module handbook for your course.

All of this information aids institutions in the process of exempting students from repeating the same modules of study at a new institution.

The University of Wolverhampton is an active member of the Midlands Credit Compass, which promotes a climate that supports student mobility, progression, and lifelong learning. It demonstrates our joint commitment to putting students at the heart of the system, supporting student access, choice and flexibility.
