  • I studied for my Bachelor’s degree at the University of Abuja in Nigeria. I researched postgraduate options online and UWS offered the course with everything I wanted. Students and lecturers are so helpful and friendly, I feel like I’m part of a very special community.The quality of teaching is amazing and I’m developing academically and personally.UWS makes you feel like you matter, and helps you realise your dreams and aspirations.”

  • I was always interested in teaching, but after I graduated in combined Chemistry and Physics, I started a family, and needed a job. I worked in a distillery for ten years, and then applied for my course at UWS to change career direction. I chose UWS for teacher training specialising in maths. The course and my year of teaching experience gave me the confidence to apply for jobs against more qualified teachers. I now have a permanent post in the maths department at a school in Kirkcaldy.
