    lol yep i noticed i just got in to study law the llb honours, im a lil worried though considering this forum is so empty is it a good uni? and would you possibly know what the employment rates are like of people coming out with a degree in law in wolverhampton (as a solicitor or barrister).

    I am going to Wolvo to study Sports Coaching!!
    I have been to the uni of a couple of occasions and although its not Oxford but i am looking forward to it!!! Its Uni - no one expects 5* accomodation - the thing you need to remember is just to make the most of what you got!!!!

    I agree its a lil disapointing to see the lack of response to this thread!!!
    Are there any more open days before the start of term??
    I think there is a clearing open day tomorrow - but is that open to all people - does any1 no??

    ive got an offer for pharmacy, but im having serious doubts whether to accept it after reading this section, and RISELEY05's threads, things are not looking good. I think i probably wont accept the offer and go to leicester to do another scientific degree instead.

    im in two minds hence the reason im off to the open day today. i dont no whether to now take a gap year and reapply to other uni's next year as im not liking the reputation of wolved nor the success rate of getting a job once you finish the degree :confused: :confused:

    I think that it is a bit shallow to turn down a uni based on a few people's opinions. I loved every minute of my time at Wolverhampton. I graduated with a good honours degree and I am now doing an MA.

    Wolverhampton is like anywhere else - it is what you make it. If you work hard you will come out with a good degree. If you don't work hard it is your own fault that you got a third or a 2:2.

    If you are looking at the employment rates it is better to look at your own individual subject area. Like many Universities, Wolverhampton is good for some courses and not as good for other courses.

    I have the name of a website at work, which shows the resuts of the national student survey. I'll post it sometime on Monday (when I get a spare 5 mins!). That will give you a more objective view of student opinion that these forums.

    Remember, Wolverhampton has 23,000 students and only 10 of those seem to post on here. Don't take everything you read at face value.

    thanks for that strings, hey i went to the open day and i loved it one of the tutors that will be teaching me from september was lovely she made time for me when the was a big que and told me all about success rates and also said similar to you strings its what you make it.well i sent back me acceptence letter and after spending a good day there and looking round although i couldnt see the law school due to construction work lol. i do totally agree now iv been listening to opinions of a mere percentage of students some of which post in this thread and dont even go to wolves uni, i would have no hesitation in reccomending it and i would say dont knock it until you have your own experience there.After 10 mins my mind was made up the warm friendly atmosphere and nice staff made it a great day

    hello. i am going to the wolverhampton uni to study bsc hons in computing. i have been to the uni 2 times and i thought it was good modern uni. it had great ict faclities like the MI buliding. dont be mislead by ppl who put wolves uni down. it a great uni but if you cant be bothered to put the effort in then thats your fault not the uni. i recently got a welcome pacakge which had my inducation week timetable i must say the hours are a lot for the inducation week 10-5 most of the week. i am also a bit disppointed it was 18th sept could have been a bit later like 3rd oct. after the indication do we start the next week after or do we have a small break. also whats the hours per week and timetable like.

    I personally thought wolverhampton was really nice and very helpful and it was my insurance choice, but don't go on other people's opinion as each to their own

    Hey all,

    I'm going back to Wolves to do my MA Social Work. Will be based at Telford Campus, which unfortunatly is the only one of the campuses I've never been to before.

    I did my BA at Wolves too 2000-2003. I agree with whats been said completely. A uni is only as good as the amount of effort you put in yourself. You really cant make your mind up from a few negative posts.

    I found the teaching to be of a very high standard (I studied within the law school), facilities were very good (I LOVED the relaxed Costa Coffee Internet Cafe) and wolves has excellent student nightlife.


    I'm sure you will have a great time.

    Good Luck,

    Missy xx
