About University of Westminster, UK 

The University of Westminster is a diverse and dynamic international education institution situated in London with three of its campuses in central London, one of the world’s great cities.

Westminster offers a vibrant learning environment where innovative, creative and dedicated students can gain the skills and experience they need to succeed in professional life. Since its launch in 1838 as Britain’s first polytechnic institution, it has led the way in many areas of education and research, and continues to do so today.

The University attracts more than 22,000 students with more than 5000 international students from 155 different nations, making it one of the most popular UK universities for international students.

A wide range of Westminster’s courses have received excellent QAA ratings, and the University’s research leads the way in many areas including art and design, electronic engineering, law, and media and communication. It has also been recognised by the HEFCE as a Centre for Excellence in professional learning from the workplace.

The University continues to invest in improving the learning environment for students and has refurbished all of its campuses in the last three years, including a £40m investment in the Marylebone Campus. Our Regent Street Campus houses the UK’s earliest public cinema, the venue for the Lumiere brothers first public moving picture show in the country in 1896.
