From Birmingham Airport to Wolverhampton

Train
If you are travelling to England via an airport in Europe, you should try and get a flight to Birmingham International Airport, which is closest to the University of Wolverhampton City Campus. The best option for getting to the University of Wolverhampton from Birmingham International Airport is by train as it is the cheapest and fastest route.

There are some direct trains to Wolverhampton from Birmingham International, although it may be faster to take the first train that goes to Birmingham New Street and change to a train that goes to Wolverhampton from there. Please ask at Birmingham International station for advice.

The journey to Wolverhampton takes about 45 minutes (including time for a transfer at New Street station).

From other airports

If you cannot get a flight to Birmingham, the other options are Manchester or London. There are connections from all airports to the West Midlands / Wolverhampton area. From Manchester, Heathrow and Gatwick Airports, we recommend using the National Express coach as there are no direct trains to Wolverhampton from these airports.

Tickets for the National Express/Flight Link coaches may be available at the airport on the day of your arrival. We do, however, recommend that you book them online prior to your arrival, as the coach services are very popular. The coaches run frequently from all airports throughout the day. Students based at Telford or Walsall can catch a train or bus from Wolverhampton to their campus.

The coach journey takes 4–5 hours from London and about 2–3 hours from Manchester. From Birmingham International it can take approximately 1 hour on the coach so it is faster and cheaper to use the train.
