Q: What does the Students’ Union offer?
A: We are YOUR STUDENTS’ UNION and are here to represent you, support you, and work with you to improve the student experience at UWS. Whilst we are independent of the University we also work in partnership to ensure you get the support and academic experience you need to achieve your goals.
Welfare and Advice - Your Welfare and Advice Service can support you with many issues including: appeals, extenuating circumstances, fitness to practice, plagiarism, disciplinary, emergency hardship, free condoms and re-usable sanitary products, a hate crime reporting service and information about other support services / resources.
Representation - Your team of student representatives, from course reps to full-time student sabbatical officers are there to listen to you, represent you and lead your Students’ Union to improve UWS for everyone.
Clubs and Societies - We are keen to help you make friends and enjoy your time at UWS. We help you to create and join clubs and societies so whatever activities you want to do you can talk to us about meeting people to do it with.
Events and Activities - We provide events and opportunities for students to meet together and have fun. You can find out more about what we can offer you and how Covid-19 will impact our services on Your Union’s website.
Q: Will the Union be open on my campus?
A: We have had to make significant adjustments to our union spaces to ensure we are keeping you safe and are compliant with government guidelines. Check out our website for the latest information.
Whichever campus you study at, if you require support or assistance, please visit our contacts page and we will do our best to help you.
Q: How can I get support from the Union?
