Excellent employment opportunities for our students

Our hands-on courses have been developed in collaboration with industrial, professional and educational partners to enable you to make a real world impact.

About the School of Science & Sport

With an emphasis on research and a focus on practical experience, our courses are designed to offer the right balance; ensuring that you are work-ready upon graduation. Our research in a wide spectrum of disciplines is supported by state-of-the-art labs and collaboration with leading employers.

Our science programme options are offered at our Paisley and Lanarkshire campuses; sport at Ayr and Lanarkshire campuses; and project and quality management at Paisley and London campuses.

Our courses consistently score highly for student satisfaction: in the 2017 National Student Survey, for example, our degrees in Biomedical Science, Sport Coaching and Sport & Exercise Science scored above 90%.

Don't take our word for it

The fact that the Applied Biomedical Science degree is registered with the HCPC (Health & Care Professions Council) means that employers are confident that UWS graduates have the skills and knowledge to be effective biomedical scientists. This is indicated in their greatly enhanced employment prospects and in their increased starting salary compared to graduates who do not have a recognised degree.

Research

Our School of Science and Sport is active in applied research in a wide variety of areas under the Institute of Biomedical and Environmental Health Research (IBEHR) and the Institute for Clinical Exercise & Health Science (ICEHS).

Research is mainly carried out through our research groups. Many of the groups are multi-disciplinary and often involve collaborations with partners in industry, academia and government.

International

Our courses offer a balance of theory and practice. Many modules in areas such as applied bioscience, environmental studies and marine biology and zoology include off-campus fieldwork components. Our students have gained practical experience in Norway, Australia and in the US. Our academics have international profiles in science, health and sport and experience with a range of organisations such as the Olympic and Commonwealth bodies, the Scottish Football Association and the Welsh Rugby Union.
