Welcome to the University of Westminster

The University of Westminster is a diverse and dynamic international education institution situated in Harrow and at three campuses in the heart of London, one of the world's greatest cities and has a distinguished 178 year history. Our university is home to over 20,000 students from 159 different countries. We were recently voted as one of the Top 100 Most International Universities in the World by the Times Higher Education and the most diverse university in the UK, this demonstrates our commitment to global engagement. Westminster offers a vibrant, diverse and inspirational learning environment fostering innovation and creativity. We offer highly attractive practice-based courses which are independently rated as excellent, many with international recognition.


We are arranged across four campuses, three in central London (Cavendish, Marylebone and Regent Street) and one (Harrow) in north-west London. We compromise of five faculties: the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment, the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, Westminster Business School, Westminster Law School, and Westminster School of Media, Arts and Design.

The University's central London location benefits from nearby access to the city's many cultural attractions, while a recent £60m investment in its facilities has resulted in Westminster being able to offer fully-equipped sports facilities to students, as well as specialist resources, such as the purpose-built Financial Markets Suite.

Westminster's courses are also taught in nine overseas countries, from Sri Lanka to Uzbekistan, a characteristic which won the university a Queen's Award for Enterprise.

The course is amazing with loads of help and assurance from staff. The coursework is diverse which is great for students like myself who struggle in exam settings. The free uni trips offered in our course is great and a lot of fun to both get involved with relevant activities to our course in different cultures but also to meet new friends and bond with staff and other students.


Overall experience of the University of Westminster has been good so far. Experiencing the internal transfer process myself, the staff memebers could give a little more help with what needs to be done to complete the transfer. All lectures are very well organised with great use of the Blackboard where anything from the lecture or more can be accessed 24/7. So far my experience has been good and I hope it gets better!
