University of Wolverhampton Stats, Info and Facts

University of Wolverhampton (UK)

The University of Wolverhampton is a global university, providing students with first class education for over 190 years, delivering excellence in teaching and research, widening access, and business engagement. From our central UK location, we provide opportunities to our students from home or abroad, in the UK and in countries around the world - helping students to develop the knowledge, skills and confidence to thrive in the global economy.

Each year, we welcome many hundreds of international students including a number of students from the USA and Canada, who join us to study at one of our UK campuses or partner institutions overseas. Wherever they are studying with us, we put our students first in our efforts to provide the best possible student experience, as well as improving your overall life chances and employability. We recently achieved our best ever student satisfaction rate and are 2nd in the UK for graduate employability and recognised for world-leading research across all our research areas in the most recent Research Excellence Framework exercise.


We have made significant investment in our teaching and learning spaces, creating state-of-the-art-facilities for students and staff. Following notable investment at Walsall Campus that resulted in our iconic Performance Hub, Learning Centre and a new Institute of Sport, including the British Judo Centre of Excellence, recent years have seen our Campus landscape develop even further. The £25 million Rosalind Franklin Science Centre, a state-of-the-art science centre, opened for teaching in 2014 and the following year established the new £18million Lord Swraj Paul Building, home to the University of Wolverhampton Business School. Our recent Millennium City courtyard redevelopment has improved access and catering facilities in the heart of our City Campus.

Further investment in engineering is set to transform Telford Innovation Campus, while our plans have been approved for the new Springfield Campus, which will develop the former Springfield Brewery into a centre of excellence for construction and the built environment.

With 300 undergraduate courses and over 200 postgraduate options mean your students can find something to match their needs and ambitions.
