WLV Wallet Bursary
The WLV Wallet bursary is designed to help students make the most of their time studying at the University of Wolverhampton.
In August 2022, the University of Wolverhampton launched WLV Wallet, a new bursary that will support eligible students to progress through their studies.

Eligible students will receive £200 in their first year and £100 on successful enrolment onto the next level of their studies (please read the terms and conditions below that apply).
WLV Wallet can be used to purchase a range of resources to help you make the most of university life, including digital and technology products, stationery, books and mobile data, plus much more.
If you are eligible for WLV Wallet, you will receive an email to your university WLV email account 24 hours after fully completing your enrolment.
