The University of Wolverhampton

Careers Workshops and Awards

We offer a range of careers workshops and short courses, most of which are available to all our students and graduates, and we are excited to announce our new Wolverhampton Employability Award.


The schedule for our courses and workshops is on our Jobs and Events database.  Places are normally limited; please reserve your place through the database and let us know if you change your mind, so that we can offer your place to someone else.  All our courses and workshops are free.
