Access to University Facilities

  • Library

    Free access to the UWS library at each campus.

    Alumni need to apply for an external borrower’s card by bringing ID and proof of graduation (a copy of the qualification certificate would be ideal) to their local campus library. Alumni can borrow up to 4 books for four weeks at a time. Books on loan can be renewed if not required by another library user. Access to e-resources is very limited and requires arrangement by request with the library.

    For further information contact your nearest campus library.

    Careers Service

    The University’s careers advice service is free to graduates for 2 years after graduation. 

    All of our services are on offer, from checking your CV to individual, face-to-face or telephone guidance interviews with our experienced careers advisers, as well as help in preparing for selection interviews. 

    Graduates can also participate in our extensive careers seminar programme and attend on-campus graduate recruiter workshops.
