Established as Britain’s first polytechnic in 1838, the University of Westminster has grown into an international community of over 19,000 students, from 165 different countries.
The university’s mission has always been to provide students from all backgrounds with the practical knowledge and personal skills they need to achieve their full academic potential. The university fosters innovation and creativity, through quality assured postgraduate courses that are informed by professional practice and inspired by research.
Through close links with nearly 200 industry partners and professional associations in London and across the world, the university creates rewarding connections between research, teaching, and enterprise, and supports students to go on to find fulfilling work after they graduate.
The university has been ranked as one of the most diverse universities in the UK, USA, Australia, and New Zealand, with the largest international student cohort of any university.
Located in the heart of London, the university is ideally placed for students willing to explore the city’s vibrant culture - spanning fashion, music, art, theatre, and sport.
The University of Westminster offer over 30 subject areas for students to specialise in, whether through taught or research-based courses – including Finance and Accounting, Law, Marketing, and Life Sciences. Many of the courses are available on both a part-time or full-time basis, and start in both September and January – to provide flexibility and suit the needs of each student. For research-based degrees, there is also the option of studying via distance learning.
Courses contain practical modules and have specialised initiatives set up to help maximise employment, including placements and internships. Fees typically range between £6,500 - £16,500, depending on the degree. However, there are a range of bursaries and scholarships available for postgraduate students, to help those who need it.
Students have access to the world-class, specialist facilities on-campus, which have recently undergone a £60 million investment, and a wide variety of support services to help them make the most of their time studying at Westminster.
