Our West London campus is located in what is widely regarded as being one of the most desirable places in London to live. There is a free bus available to all students which connect the two sites, Ealing and Brentford, just 10 minutes apart. Both towns combine a vibrant, cosmopolitan atmosphere with spacious parks and relaxed cafe culture. The area is safe, beautiful, multicultural and close to both London Heathrow Airport and the very centre of the city of London.

The Ealing site of our West London campus features state-of-the-art student facilities including a refurbished Students’ Union, music studios, an auditorium, the Paul Hamlyn library, restaurants and cafes, and much more.
