A global university
The University of Wolverhampton welcomes hundreds of international students each year, all of whom either join its friendly community in the heart of England or enrol on its world-class degree courses through its partner institutions overseas.
The University currently hosts students from more than 100 nations across its four UK campuses or partner institutions, its vibrant international community enhancing the already diverse cultural make-up of the University, city and region.
For those who wish to explore the rest of the UK, Wolverhampton is close to local, national and international transport links, meaning that getting around is easy; Birmingham International Airport is a mere 30 minutes’ journey away.
“The Quality of British education is internationally recognised. The UK is home to four of the top six global universities.” (Henry Lyonga Njimapie, BA (Hons) Media and Communication Studies)
