WOLVERHAMPTON UNIVERSITY

The roots of the University of Wolverhampton lie in the 19th century growth of Mechanics Institutes, providing vocational and general education for working men.

In Wolverhampton the Free Library (1870) developed technical, scientific, commercial and general classes, while a School of Art, established in 1851, had been developed into the Municipal School for Art in new buildings by 1885. By 1903, we had courses in coach building, house painting and pattern making.

By 1905 ‘student scholarships’ were being offered to ‘prized’ students.

With over 180 years of pioneering education for all, the University is now a global provider of entrepreneurial

With over 500 courses to choose from delivered across our 18 Schools and Institutes, the University of Wolverhampton's attractive offering to students from around the world includes 96% graduate employability (Destination of Leavers of Higher Education survey 2015), teaching informed by world-leading research, strong business links, and state-of-the-art facilities.
