UAE Community at UWS

There is an established community of Emirati students at UWS who play an active role in many of the University’s social societies and sports clubs. This means that as a student at UWS, you will have the opportunity to meet people from your home country as well as making new friends from Scotland and other parts of the world.

Our Paisley Campus is just 10 minutes from Glasgow, which is one of Europe’s most diverse cities and includes a large Muslim population. The city is home to twelve mosques and a wide range of Halal butchers and shops. Furthermore, UWS has its own Muslim Society which represents and caters for Muslim students on campus.
