Hi
I’ve gotten offers for both Nottingham Trent and Westminster to study fashion marketing. I have to make my decision soon due to accommodation situations but I am very unsure about where to go. If anyone goes to either of these unis can you tell me what the social life , teaching , trips etc are all like . I want to know other people’s experiences so I can have an idea of what might be best suited for me. Of course if any of you study fashion that would be a massive help if you could comment back on where you think would be best to go but honestly if you’re a student at either of these unis please just tell me whether it’s worth me going . Thank you

Hi,

I graduated from the University of Westminster in 2020 and had a great experience. I always found the modules of the courses expansive, interesting and full of approachable teachers.
In my first year, I lived in the Wembley student accommodation called Raffles House with other first years. It was brand new and modern and enabled me to settle into London life at the same pace as everyone else. You also learn a lot in other ways - such as your navigation of London. If you choose to live at Raffles House, it gives you the opportunity to grasp the London underground system as you make your way into the centre of London for your studies. You can find out more information regarding the university accommodation here https://www.westminster.ac.uk/study/accommodation.

In regards to social life, in my first year we had various freshers events organised months ahead of time and I found it useful to be a part of Facebook groups (more popular at the time) dedicated to Westminster students and nights out in the September. For the first two weeks we had a option for pretty much every night and these were located in clubs and bars mainly in the West End or Piccadilly in places like Tiger Tiger, or Ministry of Sound which is just south of the river.
This period of university is one of the best opportunities to meet and socialise with other people your own age and make friendships that will carry through the semesters.

I studied a Politics degree therefore I was based at the Regent Street campus which is a five minute walk from Oxford Circus station. This is also close to the Little Titchfield Law School campus which offers two floors of libraries, silent study areas and laptops that can be borrowed over the weekends in the event that your own suddenly decides to stop working. Therefore, even though you will be traveling into central London to study, once there, you will be closely connected to all your classrooms, lecture theaters and study areas.
In recent years the university has become more dynamic with how classes are taught. In my third year when classes became slightly smaller and more intimate, there were modules that placed importance on field trips and meeting up at interesting locations in order to operate the seminar there – one notable place was at Tate Gallery and another was at the British museum. In addition, there also a range of study abroad programs that are on offer in your second year which enables you to study for a single semester or even the entire year.

Best wishes,
James
