Overview

UWS was recognised by Times Higher Education as being ranked in the 501-600 category of their 2018 World University Rankings, putting us in the top 3% of universities worldwide. In 2017, Times Higher Education also ranked UWS as being in the world's top 200 universities under 50 years of age.

Expenses

The cost of avoidable food and drink waste in Scotland adds up to around £470 per year for the average household. That's a lot of money that could be spent elsewhere! Planning ahead and being clever about the way you shop can help you reduce any waste, which can save you money. We recommend setting a budget of around £140 per person per month. This is not a fixed amount and will vary depending on your household income and your other monthly expenses. Planning a menu for the next week or so and writing a shopping list will help you buy only what you need. Supermarkets are designed to make you add things to your trolley without thinking – be careful not to fall into this trap.  Whatever you do, don’t shop when you are hungry!  Whatever you do, don’t shop when you are hungry! Shop in budget supermarkets like Aldi or Lidl – you can compare supermarket prices at My Supermarket.  You can learn more about saving money and reducing food waste on the Love Food Hate Waste website.  More useful tips and tricks for shopping on a budget can be found on Money Saving Expert.
