Dominican Republic Flag

Dominican Republic

Wolverhampton may not offer the sunny beaches of home, but you will find exciting new horizons as a student from the Dominican Republic.

Take your opportunity from our portfolio of courses, which you will study at one of our campuses in Wolverhampton, Walsall or Telford.

Meet new people in and out of lectures, with plenty of things to do in the city – and remember to join one of the Students’ Union societies such as the Afro-Caribbean Society and Dominican Kingdom Society. Great transport links make it easy to explore the UK – and other countries, too.
