Hamilton Advertiser - - ALL ABOUT LANARKSHIRE -

Prospec­tive stu­dents have the chance to find out more about Univer­sity of the West of Scot­land’s range of un­der­grad­u­ate cour­ses when the Hamil­ton cam­pus hosts two open days.

Not only will in­for­ma­tion on the un­der­grad­u­ate study op­tions be cov­ered, but visi­tors will have the chance to find out about the sig­nif­i­cant in­vest­ment in teach­ing and learn­ing, IT and fa­cil­i­ties.

The open days are next Wed­nes­day, Septem­ber 20, be­tween 4pm and 9pm, fol­lowed by Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 28, be­tween 11am and 1pm.

Jes­sica Dunn, Univer­sity of the West of Scot­land’s stu­dent re­cruit­ment team leader, said: “Our Scot­tish cam­pus open days are hugely im­por­tant, pro­vid­ing prospec­tive stu­dents and their ad­vi­sors with in­for­ma­tion on the full range of op­tions avail­able at UWS, so that they can make an in­formed choice about their fu­ture stud­ies.”

This year’s Na­tional Stu­dent Sur­vey saw four UWS cour­ses – Civil En­gi­neer­ing, En­gi­neer­ing Man­age­ment, Physics and Law & Busi­ness – all come top in the UK for over­all sat­is­fac­tion.

In ad­di­tion, UWS was ranked in the world’s top 200 uni­ver­si­ties un­der 50 years of age in the Times Higher Ed­u­ca­tion Young Univer­sity Rank­ings 2017.

And 94 per cent of UWS stu­dents are in work or fur­ther study six months af­ter grad­u­at­ing.

The open day events will give prospec­tive stu­dents the op­por­tu­nity to speak to staff about ex­ist­ing and new course de­vel­op­ments, dis­cuss their ca­reer in­ter­ests, and dis­cover more about the fa­cil­i­ties.

“Th­ese events will also pro­vide an op­por­tu­nity for visi­tors to find out more about im­por­tant fund­ing in­for­ma­tion to help them pre­pare for their fu­ture study.”
