UWS Strategy 2025
University of the West of Scotland is driving an ambitious strategy for high-quality learning and teaching, and research and innovation, with a global engagement agenda to reflect the needs of the 21st century workplace.
UWS Strategy 2025, launched in February 2020, marks an exciting new chapter for the University. It focuses on the key areas in which the University seeks to flourish over the next five years, giving a picture of what UWS will look like by 2025 and lays the foundation for the University towards 2050.
Strategy 2025 was developed in consultation with colleagues across the University who shared their perspective on UWS’s strengths, the challenges we may face in the future and what we want to achieve by 2025.
The new Strategy builds on the successes and achievements made during the last Corporate Strategy period, 2014-2019. During this timeframe, UWS transformed itself within the sector, and made a significant impact on the lives of its students and local communities, as well as growing in international stature.
UWS places its students at the centre of all that it does: retention is up 9% in recent years and professional employability is sitting at just under 90%, ahead of the target set for 2020.
UWS is committed to globally relevant research and currently has teams undertaking pioneering work in areas including drone technology, eye care, artificial intelligence, thin films and sensors, 5G networking, and arthritis and dementia care. This has included recent, pioneering work on infra-red sensor technology, embedded in non-contact thermometers to help prevent the spread of coronavirus.
