If you’re thinking about travelling to study in the heartland of the UK, then you’ve come to the right place – here at the University of Wolverhampton, we welcome students from Singapore to join us for a life-enhancing period of study.

When you’re not busy in lectures or head down in revision, you’ll find plenty to experience in Wolverhampton, the wider region and the UK as a whole.

Your Students’ Union offers a wide choice of student societies and extracurricular opportunities, while the city itself features popular art galleries and music venues, delicious Asian food, Molineux Stadium (home to the mighty Wolves!) and more.

Enjoy great shopping options in Wolverhampton, Telford and Birmingham. Regular trains running the length of the country stop at the city’s train station every day, or look out for organised student trips to some of the UK’s most beloved cities.
