Here at The Students’ Union at UWE, we understand how expensive placements can be, from uniform to transport and parking, it all adds up. That’s why we created the Placement Uniform Swap Shop.
The Placement Uniform Swap Shop runs every Wednesday from 12-2pm, to give our healthcare students a more budget-friendly, eco-friendly placement experience. Healthcre students can come along and swap items that are in wearable condition.
We have had amazing engagement with over 350 students benefiting from the swap shop since the beginning of this academic year, saving students over £3100!
Whether your uniform is too big , too small or just hasn't come in time; the swap shop offers alternatives for all uniform needs.
We have had amazing verbal feedback directly from our hardworking students on how the swap shop has helped them feel more confident in what they are wearing and as a result they are more prepared for their placements and practicals.
Look Good , Feel Good, Do good!
The Success of the swap shop serves as a testament to the growing demand for sustainable living options which ,here at The Students' Union at UWE, we strive to provide.
