The University of Wolverhampton has consistently good employability rates, with the latest Graduate Outcomes survey reporting 90% of recent graduates in full-time work or further education within six months of studying, with 73% in highly skilled professions.
This is down to a wide variety of programmes on offer to help students gain employable skills. Students can attend university-led workshops and have one-to-one career support on basic skills such as CV writing and interview techniques. Beyond this, the annual Careers Fair brings students together with potential employers, while The Workplace is a support system designed to help students find work placements during their studies, which can subsequently lead to offers of full-time work upon graduation.
For those students who choose not to pursue a career upon graduation, the university offers an extensive range of postgraduate courses including doctorates.

“There are multiple careers support offices on campus to help students prepare for and obtain employment in specific or general employment areas. Courses have dedicated industry and careers focused modules.”
“The uni has the career centre that gives advice to students, guidance with CV and cover letter writing as well as interview preparation tips. The job centre also advertises the latest graduate jobs and internship positions before they become available publicly. I've been able to get two part-time on-campus jobs through the job centre. There's also a lot of useful materials on top recruiters in the UK and internationally.”
“There is careers development week which hosts a whole load of activities aimed at employability.
