UWS International Exchange Group 2015/16

Welcome to the UWS's IEG page for this year's session! Here you'll find updates about all participating acts, upcoming shows, assorted events, etc. See you soon!

The International Exchange Group is a collaboration between the University of the West of Scotland and universities in France, Germany, the Netherlands and Canada. Each year, 1 band and 1 singer songwriter get the opportunity to perform in one of these countries after winning a challenging contest. This year, the contests will take place on the 25th of November and the 9th of December in Glasgow. We'll keep you updated about all the details on this page.
