Time to invest in you.
Welcome to the Postgraduate Open Evening at the University of Wolverhampton.
We hope you enjoy your visit and gain a real insight into how postgraduate study
can enhance you both professionally and personally.

At the Open Evening you will find a team of experts from each Academic School
ready to provide you with more information about the subjects that interest you.

Current postgraduate students will be on-hand to answer your queries and
give you a flavour of what life is like at Wolverhampton, and a series of subject
specific presentations will be taking place throughout the evening.

As the top University in the West Midlands for Knowledge Transfer Partnerships,
visit their stand to discover opportunities that are available for graduates that
want to combine a full-time job with study for a postgraduate award.

With so much on offer throughout the evening, take time out to enjoy a
complimentary refreshment while you consider the opportunities available to you.

Postgraduate study. Time to invest in you.
A taught course or
Taught courses (Masters/PGCert/PGDip/Professional)
A postgraduate course can enable you to:
• enhance the knowledge gained at undergraduate level in a specific area
• gain internationally recognised qualifications and enhance your professional
   development, adding that little bit extra to your CV
• change direction as some postgraduate courses require no prior knowledge
   of the subject at undergraduate level.

Research opportunities (MPhil/PhD)
A research degree provides the opportunity to:
• carry out an individual academic investigation under the supervision of a
   small team of specialists
• review present literature in the field; apply an appropriate methodology or
   theoretical framework to your investigation; and develop and articulate a
   clear model or research question.

Taught and research (MRes)
In certain subjects we also offer the MRes (Master of Research) degree. This is
a taught postgraduate degree which places emphasis on a research project.

knowledge from
University to business
Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP) is a UK wide programme enabling
organisations to improve their competitiveness, productivity and performance
through a partnership with the University of Wolverhampton.

KTP works by placing a recently qualified graduate for up to three years at your
company to deliver a project of strategic change with academic support and
access to University facilities.

Findings from recent KTP programmes have shown an average annual increase
in profits before tax of £270,000, the creation of three genuine new jobs and an
increase in the skills of existing staff.
