Enabling achievement at the University of Wolverhampton

Inspirational University of Wolverhampton graduate Ceri Davies

At the University of Wolverhampton, we aim to go beyond opening your mind and broadening your horizons – ensuring that all our graduates, whatever their situation, will be digitally literate, knowledgeable and enterprising, and have a global outlook on life.

The world of higher education is accessible and available to all, except for a selected few professional courses where access is restricted for those with certain rare impairment-related conditions. Join us at the University of Wolverhampton and discover what higher education can offer you.

Our courses encompass foundation, undergraduate and postgraduate level qualifications in a wide variety of subjects. Many have flexible study options and can be studied either on a part-time or full-time basis.

We offer everything you need to succeed, including specialist disability support to meet your individual requirements. We have experience in supporting students with a wide range of disabilities, including physical or sensory impairments, dyslexia, hidden conditions or mental health needs, and will support you through the process of applying for specific disability-related funding – working with you to put in place any equipment and/or support you may need.

We provide adapted accommodation to suit a variety of special needs, including facilities for PAs and carers if required. We offer a number of wheelchair adapted rooms which include en-suite facilities, level access shower facilities and, in most cases, lowered kitchen facilities. Several rooms, both standard and en-suite, have facilities for D/deaf or hard of hearing students with flashing doorbells and visual fire alarm alerts.

We appreciate that you will want to focus on your studies and everything that student life has to offer, so we aim to support you through individual support complemented by our accessible and inclusive environment.

Our inspirational graduates include Ceri Davies, who has cerebral palsy and spina bifida and uses a wheelchair. Ceri was invited to 10 Downing Street to receive a Golden Diana Award for her work as a dedicated member of Dudley Youth Council and was nominated to carry the Olympic torch in 2012.

Ceri graduated with a 2:1 BA (Hons) Early Childhood and Sociology in 2011, she has gone on to set up her own consultancy company, CD Participation Services, which offers research, motivational speaking and youth work. She was a speaker at the United Nations Rights of a Child conference, and has set up a fundraising organisation for disadvantaged and disabled children, as well as working with numerous other charities.
