University of the West of Scotland has well-established links with Pakistan.
In 2009, the University was delighted to award an honorary doctorate to Dr Shamshad Akhtar, who holds a PhD in Economics from the University and was the former Governor of the Central Bank of Pakistan and is now Under-Secretary-General of the United Nations.
The University is currently home to over 200 Pakistani students and we are delighted that you are considering joining them.
There are a range of scholarship opportunities available for international students. There are also a number of major international scholarship schemes that are open to Pakistani students, including the Commonwealth Shared Scholarship Scheme and Scotland’s Saltire Scholarship Scheme.
There is an established community of Pakistani students at UWS who play an active role in many of the University’s social societies and sports clubs.
Additionally, the UWS Paisley Campus is just 10 minutes by train from Glasgow, which is home to a large South Asian community. This means that as one of our Pakistani students you can meet new people and make new friends from Scotland and other parts of the world.
Our Admissions team are familiar with the Pakistani education system and qualifications. If you have any questions about your application to study at UWS, please contact our Admissions team on: firstname.lastname@example.org.
