Important Update: Qualification Results

We understand how unsettling the last few months may have been for you with exams being cancelled. Ofqual have put in place special arrangements for this summer to make sure that the vast majority of students will receive calculated grades, so they can progress to further study or employment as expected. The grades you receive this year will carry the same value as any other year, so you can compete on a level playing field with students from previous and future years. The Ofqual Guide for Students for Post 16 Qualifications should help you understand how results have been awarded this year and where to find more information.

Information for Students Starting or Returning to College in September

The College has been able to successfully re open during lockdown to support specific students and apprentices. During this time, safety for all has been paramount and the College has been able to successfully put in measures to support a safe environment. Planning is now being undertaken to support the re-opening of College for enrolment and teaching for the new academic year.

For students and apprentices who will be joining the college in September we will post regular updates to this page providing details of measures the College will be putting in place in response to government announcements. Please also check your email for instructions about enrolling ready for September.

City of Wolverhampton College is proud to be part of Colleges West Midlands and we are committed to the Education and Skills Pledge, which is the blueprint for how we will work together to respond to the impact of Coviod-19 on our economy.

If you’ve applied for a course and have accepted an offer to study at WolvColl you will have received an email which explains about the enrolment process. (This email will have been sent to the email address you used to apply).

You will have been allocated a day during w/c 24 August when a member of our team will contact you by phone to get you enrolled. You’ll be walked through the process and we will let you know when your first day at college will be and what you can expect.

If you can’t find the email or don’t think you’ve received it, please email our admissions team: admissions@wolvcoll.ac.uk

Coronavirus Advice & Guidance:

If you have any concerns about your health you should use the NHS 111 website initially, or if you have no internet access then contact the free NHS 111 telephone helpline. Check the NHS website for the latest official advice.

The Government website is regularly updated with useful information.

You might be worried about coronavirus (also known as COVID-19) and how it could affect your life. This may include being asked to stay at home or avoid other people.

This might feel difficult or stressful. But there are lots of things you can try that could help your wellbeing.
