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.
