Universities in Support of Wounded, Injured and Sick Service Personnel
UNSWIS is a network of universities throughout the UK who support Service Leavers and Veterans who are wounded, injured or sick, or facing barriers to employment. The programme arranges tailored visits and work placements, giving an insight into the wide variety of jobs and educational opportunities within universities.
The placement was a great opportunity for me and allowed me to get a good insight of the academics of sport, along with valuable experience of working in an integral part of the sport industry – soldier who successfully completed a placement at the University of East London
The UNSWIS Programme is open to:
- wounded, injured or sick Service Leavers supported via Personnel Recovery Units,
- Service Leavers being medically discharged from the Service,
- veterans who are facing a barrier to employment, and
- military spouses facing a barrier to employment (proof of eligibility may be requested).
UNSWIS is funded by Help for Heroes.
