A warm welcome to Wolverhampton in the heartland of the UK, home to the University of Wolverhampton. For years, the University of Wolverhampton has welcomed students from all over the world – and we look forward to welcoming you!

We have a lot to offer you, not just as a University but as a city that is one of the cheapest cities to live in the UK with great transport links to the rest of the country. You can also have an opportunity of living on campus and experiencing University life first hand in our wide choice of accommodation.

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 or, sports and join a Students’ Union society, and experience the best that Wolverhampton and the rest of the UK has to offer. The city itself features popular art galleries and music venues, delicious choice of restaurants, Molineux Stadium (home to the mighty Wolves football team!) and more.

Enjoy great shopping options in Wolverhampton, Telford and Birmingham (the second largest UK City and only 20 minutes away). 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.
