This is one of the worst university to study in, if you are an ethnic minority and particularly an international student. I did my undergraduate and master degree in the UK, and found the quality of education top notch. However, to my naivety, I unfortunately choose this university to undertake one of their professional doctorate's. As an ethnic minority and an international student, they wasted three years of my life, took away 28,000 pounds of me, made me slog to do free labour for the NHS, I worked on my research and the taught modules. They did not give me the credit or recognition for the clinical hours to the NHS, did not gave me recognition for the research undertaken and did not fully credit for the credits I earned on the taught components which is violating my basic human right. To add to the insult and exploitation, they refused me to attend the graduation. I have reported them to the human rights commission.
I was an overseas MBA student and I can say that my overall experience is bad . The university team of UK is haughty influenced with the local team of overseas campus. The grading system is not fair and they follow the bell curve technique despite the quality of work . I don’t recommend it for overseas students
The team at the SU are great. They assist where ever they can. The events held are great also, well @ wolves includes doggy destress days which everyone loves. The uni campus its self is always clean, however food is not good value for money.
Not a good experience! I started Wolverhampton uni in 2015 and left the following year. The course content was interesting, however a lot of the time the lecturers didn't show up! We often had a replacement tutor who didn't understand the topic and at one point we were left sitting at our desks for over an hour, as no tutor showed up at all! We were told that the course would take place at the city campus, however we discovered that in the second year some of the modules would take place at the Telford campus! I chose the university because it was local and there was no way I would have the time to travel to Telford and then back again. I was not informed of this at interview! The facilities were ok and plenty of books in the library. That was probably the highlight of the experience! None of the people on the course were happy and although I didn't have any problems with them personally, other people on the course did! Some of the lecturers were ok but some snotty and condescending.
I am a final year student and a single parent. It wasn't clear to me that i have to do compulsory placement days of over 200 days as part of my degree. I have never to date gain any sort of support from the university, I have to pay my transport to placement and on top of it pay childcare for my two kids, due to the nature of the course, I have to give up my job my biggest regret to date. Even to get the university to confirm my enrolment to student becomes a big problem. I think the university of Wolverhampton is for young learners and not for matured learners or parents especially if you are a lone parent.
The university is getting better. Refurb and new sections are making it a great place to study. However having 40 societies, means that social activities are limited. However this is the students fault more than the university. They can't create societies if no one wants them. Eduroam is bad where ever you go.
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.
Horrible uni, they dont care about the students and teach irrelevant things. I only like one teacher and they are helping me move away from this place. i have been bullied here a lot the students are immature and not clean. there is no gym or gym discount there is only a student union room which has one pool table and a broken ping pong table. the facilities are horrible, there are no reading books only books for research and its honestly just horrible. whatever you do, dont come here (this is the telford campus not the main oen they dont care about the telford campus).
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. Better communication, it's terrible was hard to get in touch with someone when you needed help
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!
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.
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.
