Why study at the University of Wolverhampton?

The University is recognised for its world-leading research elements, particularly in science. Students work alongside research staff on new scientific discovery projects with state-of-the-art lab facilities.

The Research Excellence Framework (REF) assesses the quality and impact of research submitted by UK universities, grading them from nationally recognised (1) to world-leading (4). REF2021 saw the University of Wolverhampton submitting to four new subject areas with 75% more staff than the previously published framework. REF2021 found more than half of the University of Wolverhampton’s research to be internationally excellent (3) or world-leading (4).

The University has been awarded four stars in the latest QS Stars international rating system, with the top five-star rating going to our achievements in student employability, facilities, inclusiveness, internationalisation, and teaching.

 Our taught postgraduate courses

Similar to undergraduate courses, taught postgraduate courses at the University consist of lectures, seminars, and tutorials. Assessments will vary depending on your subject but could include exams, coursework, essays, research projects and a final dissertation.
