Student Success Team
Who we are
The Student Success team are here for all students, to provide proactive support and make sure you are successful in your studies at UWS. We are here to empower you to stay on track with your studies and get the most out of your time at university. Our role is to support students to engage with their studies and link you in with the services available at UWS.
We work with Schools and other services at UWS to develop and deliver initiatives and activities which will enhance the student experience and student success.
The Student Success team also manage a team of UWS student buddies; experienced UWS students like you. University can take some getting used to, no one knows this better than students who have been through it all themselves. Our buddies run online and in person meet ups and events for students - let us know if you’re interested here! Find out more about our buddies on the @uwsstudentsuccesshub Instagram page.
