The University of the West of Scotland (UWS) is one of the most expansive universities in Scotland, with four modern campuses across the country and a student population numbering over 22,000.
Students at the university come from more than 120 countries worldwide and are able to explore innovative postgraduate programmes across a wide range of subjects. The university places a strong focus on industry-relevant learning and transferable skills, with progressive postgraduate courses available in subjects ranging from computing to the creative industries, engineering to education.
The university traces its roots back to 1897, having formed from a variety of educational institutions each with their own rich heritage. The Paisley School of Art, University of Paisley, Dumfries and Galloway College of Nursing, Craigie College of Education and Bell College of Technology are all in the genetics of UWS.
Today, the university has campuses in Paisley, Dumfries, Ayr and Lanarkshire, as well as a London Docklands campus which opened in 2016. Each campus has a unique campus and a distinct range of specialised research equipment and bespoke learning facilities, tailored to the disciplinary focus of its academic community. They also offer a choice between urban life with plenty of professional opportunities and cultural events, or a relaxing and focused student lifestyle in rural West Scotland.
The Paisley campus is located just 10 minutes from the centre of Glasgow and is home to approximately 10,000 students. With a 20 acre site at the centre of the town, students can enjoy a perfect mix of period architecture, easily accessible campus services and one of the UK’s most exciting cities on their doorstep.
