Here are just some of the organisations we partner with to ensure that students of UWS are well represented. Just click on the name of the organisation to find out more about them. 

Internal partnerships:


Our main partners are the university! In 2015-2016 we created a Student Partnership Agreement which outlines the principles and expectations of partnership between SAUWS and UWS/students and staff and what we hope to achieve together. The main themes of the agreement were representation, assessment and feedback, and wellbeing.

We have produced a new Student Partnership Agreement for Academic Year 2019-20, the key themes for the year ahead include Mental Health, Student Opportunities and Education.  To download a copy of the SPA 2019-20 click here. The Newest SPA is coming soon but you can see a sneak preview here!
