Awful. Just go anywhere but here. I don’t understand how they get away with treating student as they do. 0 communication and support. Promised support when I stated and didn’t get any at all. Tutors didn’t reply to emails for weeks on end had to email repeatedly and often didn’t get a reply before your assessment was due. On deferring after the loss of my dad they refused to respond to emails regards my return and I was forced to get my MP involved and submit an application as if I was a new student before anyone would reply to me. I was on the phone in tears at one point and they just didn’t care, just pass the buck and don’t reply. Everything is the student fault they won’t take any responsibility for their poor treatment. 3 months after completing my course I was chasing them for my result. When I finally got my grades I was told certificate would take 2-3 months to send out. I’ve never been contacted regards graduation and don’t have the certificate so I’m chasing them AGAIN. read more

AVOID. AVOID AVOID!!!!!! Especially the Health Sciences department. A MASSIVE bullying culture within Nursing and Midwifery placements are swept under the carpet and the students are not supported. Students are not encouraged to speak up and silenced if they do. Please DO NOT go to this University if you value your mental health. It is TERRIBLE!!! Many students have left due to this. read more

Awful university, I have had an exceptional number of issues during my time at UWS, from not being able to enroll, to issues in accessing resources online on AULA. Lecturers have not been great and seem to have a high turnover with 2 of the 3 having left during my time. Their webpages, logins, and sheer volume of places you have to go to try and access what you are looking is so much more complicated than it needs to be. I would encourage anyone to consider other universities over UWS as even the simpliest of things are challenging with this uni. read more

I started studying at UWS in 2021, and have had a most miserable time. The course which was advertised does not line up with the course I am actually studying (Performance), and some lecturers are completely incompetent at teaching, and responding to students. My time here has been plagued with issues, including a crime that, despite being reported to the university themselves, was never dealt with. The accommodation is awful and offers little to do, especially now with the campus union closing. It is a joke! I have chosen to terminate my studies, as I would rather start from scratch somewhere new than stay for the remainder of my studies. Absolutely do not recommend read more

Absolutely shocking university. As a mature student who completed a SWAP course to progress on to university i have really been treated shockingly. As I was successful through clearing I had absolutely NO correspondence what so ever to start the programme. Not one piece of information on where to go, what classes I was doing, no timetable and I was never allocated a personal tutor. But somehow it’s my fault as I didn’t engage. I was bullied into accepting an offer to start next year and I’m absolutely devastated by this after working so hard next year. The Lanarkshire campus definitely needs to look at their support system for mature students or any students. read more

Review of Lanarkshire campus There are a few campuses but only a student union vibe at paisley which is a bit of a letdown for other campuses. You don't really get a university lifestyle at uws because it's so far away from everything, but the library is really good both online and on campus. I have really enjoyed my course and couldn't fault it I just think the university itself could try to encourage a more student lifestyle with more societies and clubs to join for students that aren't JUST in paisley. read more

I'm new to this university and I'm finding it very confusing how to navigate through teams and Aula. I'm constantly jumping between the two, with a lecturer who clearly have issues with me from day 1, I'm unable to to communicate or seek help. such attitude should not be taking place, why my email is getting ignored? I think I'm new to this university and my face doesn't fit so they are treating me this way. read more
