VP Community & Welfare

VP Community and Welfare

Hello, my name is Ubong Ante and I am your VP Community and Welfare.

The role of VP Community and Welfare is to ensure a smooth transition for both home and international students, across different academic years.

I’ve just graduated from UWE Bristol in Mechanical Engineering. During my time at university, I gained valuable knowledge and experience from various positions held, including being a company representative during an internship. This has put me in the right position to represent your welfare needs during your time at UWE Bristol.

World Mental Health Day Campaign
World Mental Health Day

This was a week-long campaign that began on 8 October with a range of activities across our campus sites. The main aim of this campaign was to continue to raise the awareness of Mental health on our campuses, inform both new and returning students about the importance of self-care, the support services available so they are able to effectively signpost others and share student views on both mental and physical health.
