University of Wolverhampton Children's University

The University of Wolverhampton Children’s University currently operates across the Black Country, south Birmingham and Telford. We are proud to be part of the national Children’s University Trust™ which is an international organisation aiming to promote social mobility by providing highquality, exciting and innovative out-of-school-hours learning activities to children and young people aged 5-14 years of age.


Children who are signed up to the Children’s University own a Passport to Learning in which they are encouraged to collect hours of learning towards recognised levels of achievement. Annual CU graduation ceremonies are held at the University of Wolverhampton and we actively encourage families to attend.

 Geoff Layer, Vice-Chancellor at the University of Wolverhampton, wholeheartedly supports the work of the Children’s University.

 ‘‘As the University of Opportunity, we are committed to raising the aspirations of children within our communities. Higher education has the power to transform lives, open doors and significantly improve a person’s life chances. The Children’s University is an excellent opportunity for children and young people to take part in interesting and fun activities, while also experiencing what life at university could be like. ‘‘
