More about University of Westminster
Hi there, I did a year abroad experience in my third year and I went to Australia. I highly recommend to do it as it is a unique experience that you’ll never get back. I personally had the greatest time. Academically, I had the opportunity to undertake modules i couldn’t take at the Westminster as they were not on offer. As for anything else, I had the best life experience. I met so many people from all over the world whom with I enjoyed travelling and having fun. I’ve become close to so many of them and I’ve now the opportunity to go and visit them. You also have the opportunity to travel to nearby places of your destination which is great. I think you should go. What is your destination? The process before departure was a bit tough regarding preparing documents, visa etc, but thinking of where you’re heading it’ll make it easier. I got support from uni with the Distant Horizons Scholarship which helped me a lot, especially at the beginning of the experience to pay for my initial expenses. Hopefully, this was helpful for you to make your final decision.
What course were you on? And can you do a full year at westminster? I’m torn between a year and a semester, which is why i’m deciding between greenwich and westminster. Was the year abroad extra? Or was it still 3 years degree? I dont know where i want to go as i didn’t even start uni yet, but i had Australia in mind too. I’m sorry i have so many questions but it’s hard to make such a decision, thank you so much for the info
