ABOUT University of Wolverhampton
The University of Wolverhampton was awarded university status in 1992 and currently has around 23,000 students enrolled, of which 2,500 are international. It is spread across four campuses in the west midlands and can trace its roots back to 1835 when it was formerly the Wolverhampton Mechanics’ Institute. Wolverhampton has one of the highest employability rates in the country (96% are in work or further study within six months of graduation), with extensive support offered to those looking to begin their career. The University was also rated the fourth happiest in the UK (in terms of education quality, support and student-life) following a recent survey by accommodation provider Sodexo. Wolverhampton has a historic reputation for applied research and innovation, starting with its use of what is now the oldest original functioning electronic stored program computer in the world in 1957. The University also provided one of the first degrees in British sign language, as well virtual reality design and manufacturing.
