Students Union could do with being more active, but the help they offer students is invaluable. Teaching is great and, from my experience, lecturers are happy to make themselves available at all hours a day - there's a very strong focus on succeeding. Not a lot of green areas, but Wolverhampton has some lovely parks. Sometimes it felt more like a very big School, but then I got lost in MI that one time and decided it was definitely a University.

University of Wolverhampton Reputation

With around 23,000 students and spread across four different campuses, Wolverhampton University offers over 380 courses in total. The city campus is in the city centre of Wolverhampton and is the main university site, with three other campuses in Walsall, Telford and Burton upon Trent. The university has been recognised for its encouragement of students attending higher education from many different backgrounds and abilities, including over 2500 oversees students.

Wolverhampton University was awarded National Teaching Fellowships for two years. The Wolverhampton Business School has also been recognised with an award for its connection with businesses outside of the University in the West Midlands. In the National Student Survey, 78% of students were satisfied with their university experience, as well as 84% of students saying they were satisfied with learning resources and 90% of students saying they were able to access resources when needed.

The main city campus hosts eight faculties including The School of Art and Design, The School of Health and Wellbeing and The School of Law, Social Sciences and Communications. Halls of residence are also situated close to the city campus, as well as the students union and administration departments. Within the campus buildings are many up to date facilities including two TV studios, radio studio, digital editing suites, exhibition gallery, library, lecture theatres and campus restaurants. The Burton campus is home to the nursing facilities whilst the Telford campus hosts buildings for engineering, business, computing and social work. Finally the Walsall campus focuses on subjects such as sport, music, dance, education, tourism and hospitality. Millions of pounds have been spent on the sports facilities here which include a 12 court sports hall, athletics track, floodlit pitches and swimming pool.

Wolverhampton city offers shopping centres for a wide variety of tastes, plenty of places to eat and drink, many clubs and night out venues to choose from and Art galleries and theatres for day and evening entertainment. The main city campus is also only 16 miles from Birmingham, only 20 minutes away by train, if you can’t find what you need in Wolverhampton. There are also other easily accessible train lines and bus routes to other major cities. The city has been recognised as one of the most ‘cost friendly’ places in the UK which is ideal for students. Telford campus also offers a taste of the countryside but is still within reach of plenty of shops and restaurants as well as the ski centre, ice rink and cinema.

It was poor mostly rundown faculty in the regards being how the law department had been run as I had prior knowledge to what they had already had in mind in teaching let alone I am only a 1st year law student in college!

This university is a disgrace. They do not care even a little bit about the students, it is full of lazy staff who are more interested in cutting corner rather than the quality of the students learning. They are rude and very unhelpful. The university is also severely unorganised. They are robing millions of £9,250 a year and quite frankly would wish a place at this university on my worst enemy. Whatever you do, do not apply to this university. Aside from the university it self being abysmal, the accommodation is a complete shambles again run by staff that do nothing and lack the ability to take responsibility and actually do their job. Might I add it is not expensive but not even worth the price they are charging, that says a lot. The people that run clubs once again rude. Not much room for growth or career progression all they've done is add stress and send unnecessary emails. Quick reminder, STAY AWAY.

Not great at all. As someone said you can't get in touch with someone if you need help. They let me do a January start but the programme isn't designed for a January start which I did not know when I started I did the first year backwards which was very confusing. I think they just wanted my money. Once they have that they don't want you. My Dad was ill and passed away in second year which meant I have had to have a lot of time away. They won't let me repeat year even though my funding will allow for it. Facilities are very poor. Wolverhampton is a very depressing place in the Winter. I have to commute which is a complete ball ache and they changed the start times to 9 am when it had always been 10 am. It's not worth 9 grand a year. They even had a secondary school teacher teaching one of the modules. Even though he was good I don't think he knew his stuff as much as other lecturers. It's a really difficult process to put in an extenuating circumstances claim and their Wolf is not good

I've had recently requested a withdrawal from this place. They do not care about the students. They consider the Staff first and the student maybe second to last in priority. Staff are sadistic and will defame you to their boss so that you are removed from their topics for absolutely no reason. The higher-ups will make every possible choice to make your academic life a living hell. They will not allow you access to services you are entitled to. They will record your emails and will turn the slightest action of yours against you. Students' voices are not heard, the Student's Union will side with the staff and you will be the one at fault in the end. They will not even follow their own rules. They will warn every staff not to contact you and they will brand you as 'unhinged' and 'passive aggressive' if you try to complain. The University will always be right, the staff will always be right and you as a student, if you dare disagree, will go through a disciplinary meeting. Keep away.

Terrible, lectures either don't show up or offer little advice or assistance on the modules. Facilities are completely unreliable and they forced me to quit my job since it "effected" my studying hours essentially threatening me with a failure grad, and cost me a lot of money buying books and software that we never used. Got nothing out of the three years i was there.

Studied CIM course here and was without doubt a shambles, I can't comment on other services in the university and my one star rating is all down to the poor teaching staff. Study elsewhere is my recommendation, unless you like a course where you do everything yourself.

I stayed in student village which was nice, the security team were ok. Had a friend who stayed in Gorway Halls and experienced loads of problems. Drugs everywhere, silverfish crawling from the unsanitary bathrooms to their room which was down the hall. The whole building's heating broke and wasn't fixed for weeks in the middle of winter. They hated living there -- stay away.

My time at the University has not been the 'University experience' I had in mind when I came here. The University is more of a adult learning centre rather than a place of vibrant opportunity. If you are 17/18 and looking to come here, don't, just don't. I have experienced more problems here than I would like to. I was involved with a University sports team here and eventually started working here during my last year. It was terrible. The University doesn't support anything. For example, the Student Union (If there is one) supports itself. It doesnt have the basic facilities, like a sports pitch. If you want to come here. Dont, just dont.

I love going here as it really suits me. The library is fantastic and there are places to go out every night and loads of different scenes at that! There are clubs and societies and the interlinked bus runs between the other campuses to help you get there!

The university have mediocre facilities for social but their facilities for your study are excellent, the lectures are always willing to help and there are millions of opportunities to find work. They have regular careers fairs, they have a workplace which allow you to work as part of the university and show a lot of opportunities to volunteer and/or gain employment.

Could have a better student union ... I've been to other university and they are amazing makes wolves look rubbish. Career support, I've left uni and finding an job based on my degree is hard they want you to have experience therefore all courses should contains some placements to help this happen.

Walsall Campus is very good for me personally as a music student as I live in halls on campus and can go to late rehearsals and not have to worry about getting home via transport etc. Also, there are many different opportunities to join ensembles etc in the beautiful performance hub!

More like a college, no student atmosphere, terrible quality facilities for university standard. One or two or the societies are fairly interactive, but not entirely sure what the Student Union does as I haven't heard or seen them in the year I've been there.

Great staff and facilities depending on the campus, not all campuses however have facilities or easy access to facilities such as sporting facilities, also very little green area. Students union are not seen or heard of as much as liked nor is the bonding of students across the board.
