University of Wolverhampton
Welcome to University of Wolverhampton
The University of Wolverhampton has a long history of providing students with the opportunities presented by a first class education. As a major player in the UK higher education sector, we continue to excel in the areas that have contributed to our excellent reputation: award-winning teaching, state-of-the-art facilities, international partnerships, strong business links and innovative research.
Today's modern University can be traced back to Wolverhampton’s Mechanics’ Institute and College of Art in the mid-1800s. These institutions, together with teacher training and health colleges that were later incorporated, developed our rich heritage and tradition of academic excellence in vocational higher education.
The main campus is at Wulfruna Street in Wolverhampton itself (in the West Midlands) Though there are three other campuses of the university too based across the West Midlands and Shropshire (Wolverhampton, Walsall and Telford)
