The University of Westminster was formed from the Royal Polytechnic which was established in 1838. It is spread over four campuses, three of which are in central London with over 19,000 students from more than 160 countries on various programs of study which include both undergraduate and postgraduate courses, professional programs, and short courses.

Subjects maintain a strong vocational focus, with longer modules including work-based skills and integration with practical activity.

Undergraduates are able to conduct research during their degree and the University has achieved fame for its media studies and fashion degrees, both of which are rated as being some of the best in the world.

Having celebrated its 175th anniversary in 2013, Westminster continues to invest heavily in all facilities from accommodation to the restoration of one of the first cinemas in Britain within the Regent Campus.

The University of Westminster works closely with  Kaplan International College London in order to provide foundation courses for international students, and also has progression agreements with a number of other foundation providers.

The University also offers a number of in-house foundations for access to undergraduate study, for students already familiar with the UK education system who require no additional English language support, or adjustment to UK life.

Dedicated International Student Advisers provide information, support, and advice to international students at the University of Westminster.

The services provided include a three-day residential orientation program for new international students and a regular newsletter detailing social events, interesting news, and what’s on in London.

English as a Foreign Language is available both as a pre-sessional course and as a credited module as part of a degree course.
