As a UWS Alumnus you can make a difference to UWS students

Help the bright students of today achieve their ambitions, regardless of their backgrounds. There are lots of ways for UWS alumni to help and support current and future UWS students on their academic journeys:

  • provide advice and mentoring
  • provide internships and job placements
  • support a student scholarship/bursary or other programmes for students 

Practical support

Provide work placements

Help us produce work-ready graduates by providing work placements or work-related learning projects to UWS students. Work placement opportunities, which vary in duration, tend to commence in February or early summer

Advertise vacancies and recruit UWS students
