University of the West of Scotland (UWS) is one of the country’s largest modern universities, and aims to have a transformational influence on the economic, social and cultural development of the West of Scotland, and beyond. We aim to make the communities we serve more successful, and to create opportunities for all to participate.

In addition, we have recently opened our fifth campus in London.UWS is an international university with over 1400 international students drawn from more than 70 countries across the globe, and we work with over 100 international partners.
At UWS, we believe in our students’ future.
We have a proud record in delivering work-ready graduates and developing effective partnerships with business, industry and the public and voluntary sectors. With our cutting-edge courses, practical knowledge, and intelligent teaching, we help our students get ahead.
Through our innovative learning partnership we invest in people’s potential to shape their future. Built on uniting students, professionals, industry and our communities, this partnership stretches from the West of Scotland around the world.
We believe in the transformative power of active learning and engagement. We treat our students as individuals, partners and potential leaders in their fields and professions, providing them with the globally relevant knowledge, skills and confidence to think critically and to challenge received wisdom.
Our MSc International Events Management is available with a work-based learning route, and is aimed at those already working in the events industry who want to develop their skills and knowledge in this area. A mixture of online learning and classroom sessions at our Paisley Campus combine to create a programme which can be studied in one year whilst working full-time.
