Wed 29 November 2023 12:00-14:00
The Students' Union, Glenside Campus
Here at The Students' Union, we understand how expensive placements can be. The price of uniforms, parking, accommodation and enough coffee to get you through your shift - it all adds up!
That's why we've created our Placement Uniform Swap Shop, to give our healthcare students a more budget-friendly, eco-friendly placement experience.
If you've finished your course, you can drop your pre-loved placement uniform items off in The Students' Union Office at Glenside at any time between 09:30-16:00, Monday-Friday. We accept all sizes, styles and conditions (but please help us out by washing items before donating them!)
Come along to our weekly Swap Shop events to exchange your uniform items for something more comfortable.
You can still pop along to a Swap Shop event, even if you don't have anything to swap. Whether your uniform hasn't arrived in time for placement or you're struggling to juggle laundry with late night shifts, we can help you out on a case-by-case basis.
Spread the word
Tell your friends, your coursemates and your lecturers. This scheme is run solely on donations so the more uniforms we have, the more Swap Shops we can run!
Placement Uniform Swap Shops will be held every Wednesday, between 12:00-14:00 in The Students' Union at Glenside.
Up to date information on all events at Glenside Campus, including Placement Uniform Swap Shops can be found here.
