Botswana Flag


Here at the University of Wolverhampton, we extend a warm welcome to students from Botswana and look forward to you joining us here in the UK.

We have a strong relationship with Africa and a strong presence in the continent, including our Regional Office and the work carried out by our Centre for African Entrepreneurship and Leadership.

When you arrive here, you’ll be based at one of our three campuses in the heart of the UK. Get involved with student activities and experience the best that Wolverhampton has to offer, from the city’s choice of restaurants and entertainment venues.
