UWS is investing in student success with the UWS Lanarkshire Campus development. The 13th August saw our first cohort of PGDE students arrive at the new, state-of-the-art campus at Hamilton International Park. With the full cohort of students arriving on 3rd September 2018.
The development replaces UWS Hamilton campus and delivers a modern, collaborative and connected experience for students.
"I like how open and modern it is. I feel as though it will be a good environment to study and learn in."
Encouraging participation – through Team UWS, our partnership with the Students’ Association, which runs teams in 20 different sports
Supporting aspiring performers – our scholarship programme offers support and flexibility to aspiring high-performance athletes and players who study with us
Facilities – the new Lanarkshire campus offers the scope to create excellent sporting facilities. Elsewhere, we’re working to expand our easily accessible sports space, on and off campus
Partnerships – we support local and national clubs in rugby, netball, football and ice hockey, sharing our expertise to mutual benefit.
Our involvement in competitive and performance sport offers further opportunities for UWS to play a central part in our local communities, while encouraging individual aspiration. And building a sporting reputation widens our appeal to new students.
