Applications soar for University of Wolverhampton
The number of students applying to the University is up by 30% compared with last year.
So far, there have been 16,176 applications to Wolverhampton, compared to 12,442 in 2009. For the UK as a whole, more than 570,000 students have applied for a place at university this autumn, an increase of more than 100,000 on the same time in 2009.
Popular subjects at the University Wolverhampton include nursing, teaching, social work, law, psychology and business management.
The rise in applications at Wolverhampton follows the launch of Learning Works, a new undergraduate course portfolio. The University reviewed all its courses to make sure they are suited to student needs and demand.
The new portfolio is designed to provide students with the key skills and knowledge they need for the world of work. Students will also be offered a work placement, the opportunity to run their own businesses, volunteering, mentoring, or an international study visit, to prepare them for employment.
Jane Nelson, Pro-Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs, said: “We are very pleased with this positive increase but we are still at an early stage in the applications process and would encourage potential students to apply.”
