Set in the heart of England, the University of Wolverhampton’s students are benefiting from the most ambitious plan in its history – with £250 million investment generation into the student experience by 2020. It has three main campuses in Wolverhampton, Telford and Walsall, where academic schools cover subjects within: Arts; Education, Health and Wellbeing; Science and Engineering; and Social Sciences. Wolverhampton has been named as one of the most cost friendly cities in the UK (meaning your drinks money can last as long as your tins of beans), and even the university itself has been named the ‘friendliest’ in the West Midlands according to former students. Birmingham is only 20 minutes away, while London, Manchester and Liverpool are also in easy reach on the train and bus.
