West Midlands Combined Universities response to COVID-19

In these times when there is so much uncertainty and tough decisions are being taken by businesses and people every day, West Midlands Combined Universities (WMCU) are doing all they can to support not only their staff and students but communities and organisations in the region, through this crisis.

The WMCU is a consortium made up of Birmingham City University, Coventry University and the University of Wolverhampton, each institution has transformed some of their services and realigned certain resources to help tackle the virus and those impacted.

Whilst the consortium was formed to help drive forward innovation, investment, job creation and boost skills in the West Midlands, the three universities have also responded quickly to the COVID-19 pandemic. This has been achieved by bolstering numbers of staff on the NHS frontline, delivering community initiatives for those most in need and repurposed research facilities to produce and deliver vital equipment.
