The University of Westminster was formed from the Royal Polytechnic established in 1838. It is spread over four campuses, three of which are in central London. There are over 19,000 students from more than 160 countries on a variety of programmes, ranging from undergraduate and postgraduate courses, to tailored professional programmes 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.
Making a remarkable impact through research was underpinned by a strong research environment. 100% of Westminster's Art & Design and English submissions were judged to enjoy a world-leading and internationally excellent research environment.
The world-leading impact the University achieved includes the first in-depth retrospective of Black British music, revolutionising understanding of its cultural significance to the nation. Work from the Ceramics Research Centre-UK re-evaluated the position of ceramics in contemporary art and museum culture and changed the approach to public participation and audience engagement. Moreover, documentary film research has led to the official recognition and the first government-sponsored forums for addressing acts of genocide in Indonesia.
SI-UK's service is fast, reliable and efficient. Their consultants are specialists, working closely with all UK universities and, through my consultants' advice and application assistance, I was able to receive offers from my favoured universities.
