About

History

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

The Wolverhampton Free Library also developed technical, scientific, commercial and general classes.

Our research activities impact positively on business, the environment, society - and of course, our students. The work we are doing helps to advance knowledge and address real world problems, such as the health of aging populations and sustainable development, in a variety of different ways.

Across the University, there is a growing number of dedicated Research Centres and inter-disciplinary Research Institutes that cover a variety of research topics - ranging from designing for people with dementia, to new discoveries in diabetes.

At Careers, Enterprise and the Workplace we understand that many students come to the University of Wolverhampton not just for their interest in a subject but because they want a successful career and a better life.
