UWS is Scotland's largest modern university but has origins dating back to over 100 years ago. With campuses across the West of Scotland in Ayr, Dumfries, Hamilton and Paisley, the University occupies an integral position within Scotland's proud tradition of excellence in education.
Offering career-focused and vocationally relevant provision, UWS graduates are equipped with the relevant skills to make an immediate contribution to industry; business; public and third sector organisations.
Study opportunities are available at undergraduate, postgraduate and research level across a range of diverse areas including Business; Computing; Creative and Cultural Industries; Education; Engineering; Health, Nursing and Midwifery; Science; Social Sciences and Sport.
Many courses offer recognition from the relevant professional bodies, as well as opportunities for work-based learning or placement as part of studies. UWS also provides an extensive range of part-time and continuing professional development option across many of these areas.
To provide the best possible learning environment for students, a £200 million+ investment programme is well underway across all campuses. This has recently delivered a new £81 million campus at Ayr and £13.2 million student accommodation at Paisley Campus. The University has a thriving international student population, and has an established network of EU and US partners for exchange opportunities.
By producing relevant, high-quality, inclusive higher education and innovative and useful research the University hopes to inspire people not only to achieve their full potential, but to exercise leadership in their communities and professional lives.
