The University of Wolverhampton is a public university in the West Midlands region in the UK. It has campuses in Shropshire, Staffordshire, and West Midlands offering a range of undergraduate and postgraduate degrees across four faculties. The university is known to provide work experience via its Knowledge Transfer Partnerships program even as a student pursues a degree.
To date, the university enrols over 19,000 students with about 2,500 of them from other countries. About two-thirds of the student body are from the West Midlands region.
The four faculties administer 22 schools or colleges, 14 research centers, and several departments between them. Overall, they offer more than 380 bachelor and graduate degrees. The main campus houses many of the faculties and administrative offices, the student council, and support facilities. On the other hand, the colleges of engineering, business, built environment, social work, and computing are located in another campus, the Telford Innovation Campus.
Opened in 1994, it is the newer campus hosting the e-Innovation Centre, which provides companies access to the university’s IT resources, facilities and manpower, as well as accommodations. There are also the residence halls for around 500 students on the campus. This setup is part of the university’s push to give its students exposure to industry practitioners.
Meantime, the Walsall Campus is host to the colleges or schools for music, dance, sports, health, education, events management, tourism, and hospitality. It also houses the Institute for Learning Enhancement, a few lecture theaters, and specialist teaching rooms.
The University of Wolverhampton is also a research-oriented institution. In 2017, the Shanghai Rankings for Library and Information Science rated the university’s Statistical Cybermetrics Research Group scientists no. 1 for research quality. A science park in the university premises also hosts companies pursuing developments in science, technology, creatives and knowledge base sectors. The science park also provides business support services, laboratory facilities, and conference venues.
Wolverhampton was founded in 1992 but it traces its origins all the way back to 1827 when the Wolverhampton Tradesmen’s and Mechanics’ Institute was founded. The institute would merge with other higher learning centers, notably the Wolverhampton Free Library in 1870 and, decades later, with the Municipal School of Art, creating the Wolverhampton Polytechnic in 1969. The same institution would provide the foundation of the current university, which achieved its university status and name in 1992 after opening more colleges such as the College of Technology in 1966 and the New School of Art and Design in 1970.
Notable graduates include Claire Darke (mayor, Wolverhampton), Sir Terence Beckett (director-general, Confederation of British Industry), and Sir Charles Wheeler (sculptor).
