The University of West London (UWL) is based in the heart of one of the UK’s most successful business regions, with a number of global organisations such a GlaxoSmithKline and Sky based locally.
The University offers postgraduate courses in subjects ranging from nursing to music. Known as the ‘career university’, there is an impressive graduate employment rate, with courses specifically designed to enable students to secure work after leaving.
The nine Schools in the university are:
London School of Film, Media and Design
The Claude Littner Business School
School of Computing and Engineering
School of Law
London Geller College of Hospitality and Tourism
London College of Music
College of Nursing, Midwifery and Healthcare
School of Human and Social Sciences
School of Biomedical Sciences
The University is made up of two campuses –West London, and the Berkshire Institute for Health, which is in Reading and enables the University to deliver its nursing and midwifery programmes across the region in partnership with the NHS.
The two West London sites are based in Ealing and Brentford. A free bus service runs between the two schools, while transport links around both areas make it easy to get into Central London and explore the city.
The University has invested £150m in the campus which includes a new radio studio for media students, performance spaces, industry-leading training facilities plus an on-site restaurant and a 24-hour library. In Autumn 2019 they opened Rami Ranger House – Postgraduate and International Student Centre, Graduate Common Room and Sports Centre.
A number of postgraduate courses, both research based and taught, can be studied here. And for students balancing a Master’s degree with full time work, there is the option of part time study, including Saturday and evening classes.
The university has a postgraduate Savoy Suite that has been specially designed for students to focus on their work in a motivational setting.
