The safety of our students, staff and the wider community remains of paramount importance to us, and we continue to monitor and follow Government guidance around Covid-19. We have worked with our local authority partners to deliver our safety measures throughout the pandemic, and we are continuing to follow the Government's roadmap announcements.

As long as Government guidance permits us to do so, we plan to return to our normal levels of on-campus teaching as much as possible in the next academic year. We have learned a great deal from the last 18 months , and students have reported positive aspects of having access to online resources and support. We don't want to lose these positives and will build them into the way we teach next year. We will also need to be ready to move back to fully online at short notice should Government guidance change.   

The past year has been a challenging time for all of us. We recognise that there are a lot of things that have been different for you in researching and applying to university. We want to ensure we provide you with as much support as possible before you start and that’s why we have put together our ‘Get Set’ hub.

On the Get Set hub, you will find a range of events, resources and support channels to help you get set for your time at the university.


Welcome week will start on Monday, 20 September. 
Teaching is due to start for most students in the week beginning Monday, 27 September 2021 (this may be earlier for some courses).

To receive your timetable, you must first ensure that you have fully completed your online enrolment and module registration.

Enrolment will normally be available 6-8 weeks ahead of the start of your course. Timetables will then be released no earlier than 6 weeks before the start date of your course.

We aim to release timetables as soon as possible after you have enrolled online, and you will be notified as soon as they are available.

You can apply for your accommodation at the University of Wolverhampton online as soon as you have confirmed your offer of a place on a course.
