Besides being part of an extensive worldwide professional and academic network of 100,000 which will help develop your career, you will be delighted to know that UWS alumni are eligible for a range of benefits.
The University’s careers advice service is free to graduates for two years after graduation. It includes:
If you are a former student of the university, you are automatically a member of our Alumni Association and may be eligible for a 10 % discount on Masters’ Degree tuition fees for future courses. Please contact Development & Alumni at firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm your eligibility.
(*This discount cannot be combined with any other tuition fee discount or scholarship. Applies to self-funding UWS Alumni enrolled in a UWS Masters’ Degree Programme on a Scottish Campus. Does not apply to PGDE, MEng, PG Cert or PG Dip programmes. To qualify, students are required to have studied at UWS, or a previous higher education institution which is now part of UWS, for at least one year and meet the Masters’ Programme entry requirements.)
Many recent graduates benefit from being paired up with a mentor from the alumni community.
Mentors are selected to offer relevant experience of your profession or sector. They act as guides and sounding-boards for your career development.
Free Campus Library Access
You can borrow up to five books for four weeks at a time from any campus library. To apply, bring your ID and proof of graduation (a copy of your qualification certificate would be ideal) to your local campus library.
Special offers for continuous professional development courses and events are sometimes available to alumni. You’ll find these advertised in the bi-monthly alumni newsletter.
Accommodation & Events

If you’re planning an event, consider the University’s range of flexible venue spaces. These can be reserved in tandem with the accommodation above. Professional catering and event planning are also available. A discounted rate is offered to alumni so please contact us to find out more
