Welcome to Westminster! Located in the heart of London, ranked as the best city in the world for university students (QS Best Student Cities 2018 and 2019), the University of Westminster is an international institution embracing global engagement in all its forms. With a distinguished history since 1838, we have over 19,000 students from 169 nations (including 52 from Indonesia), placing us among the world’s top 15 most international universities in the Times Higher Education’s 2018 World University Rankings. Our central London location, wide range of courses and academic reputation makes us one of the most popular choices for international students coming to the UK.
Westminster’s Film, Fashion, Art & Design, Architecture, Media, Tourism, Land & Property Management, Politics, Creative Writing and Building courses all rank in the top 30 in the UK. We also rank 2nd in London for Marketing and 4th for Accounting and Finance (Complete University and Guardian University Guides 2020).
We are very proud to have strong links with industry and professional organisations in London and across the UK. Westminster offers students extensive placement and internship opportunities and the majority of our courses carry professional accreditations. There is a wide provision of practical and pastoral support for international students, enabling them to make the most of their time at Westminster. This includes a Welcome Programme, Student Advice Service, Health Service, Academic Support Services, Students’ Union and Career Development Centre. The Students’ Union has a wide range of sporting and cultural societies, which are run by students, for students. And finally, after completing their studies, as members of a truly global alumni network, our graduates continue to reap the benefits of their Westminster education well into the future.
