More about University of Westminster
Hey. I have chosen to study criminology and sociology sandwich year in both unis. But I don’t know whether Greenwich or Westminster. Westminster is my firm and Greenwich is my insurance. I am thinking about changing them. Therefore, I wanna know your experience in Westminster, the facilities, any issues, teachers, pass rates and anything related to criminology and sociology. Thank you
I graduated at the University of Westminster in 2020 after four years of study there and now work for the Course Enquiries Team here.
I studied Politics and was located at the Regent Street and Little Titchfield Street campus but here are some of my own personal experiences of the university and things you may want to know:
Location and Campuses:
This was one of the main advantages that encouraged me to apply here. This is one of the most centrally located universities in London. Whether you are based at the Cavendish, Regent Street or Marylebone campus, you will always be within the heart of a bustling city that provides a unique backdrop to complete your degree. As you have a place for the Criminology and Sociology course, you will be based at the Regent campus and Cavendish campus.
With state-of-the-art science and psychology labs and refurbished computer suites, our Cavendish Campus offers our science and technology students a range of learning spaces that are both dynamic and inspiring. Located in central London, our Cavendish Campus is just a five-minute walk from Oxford Street and Tottenham Court Road.
Our Regent Campus is made up of three locations – 309 Regent Street, Little Titchfield Street and Wells Street, all of which are just a five-minute walk from Oxford Street. Along with a city-centre location, the site boasts high-tech learning facilities, collaborative social spaces, gym facilities, and our Regent Street Cinema.
There are three main campuses in central London as well as a Law School situated near to Regent Street. Therefore, you can take advantage of all they have to offer. The campuses offer state of the art facilities including new libraries, break out areas, gyms, silent work rooms and interesting seminar rooms. I was located at the Regent Street campus for my course but would spend a lot of my time at the Little Titchfield Street Law School across the street due its silent library which helped me get a lot of work done. The Marylebone campus is one of the biggest buildings and has been redeveloped inside and offers brand new architecture studios and computer rooms.
In my experience, the tutors were also approachable, friendly, passionate and wanted to see you succeed. You are assigned a personal tutor who you can arrange one and one meetings with and talk with about any issues regarding your course. They will have offices within the campus that you can go to for drop in meetings during the day.
During my time at the university, the teachers in the department always went to an effort of holding Christmas parties, or end of year gatherings with food and drink.
Depending on which course, the pass rate is always very high. Graduates from these popular and critical disciplines are highly employable, and you'll be well equipped for a range of careers in psychology, criminal justice and policing, as well as related areas such as teaching or health and social care.
Specific career choices may include policing and crime analysis, prison services, the National Probation Service, the Home Office, Court Service, the NHS, victim support, and forensic or clinical psychology.
Sport and Leisure:
Just a tube ride away from the center of London, there is are outdoor sports facilities located at the Quintin Hogg Memorial Sports Ground at Chiswick near the banks of the River Thames.
The extensive sports grounds can accommodate a wide range of sports, which include football, rugby, hockey, lacrosse, cricket, tennis, and netball. Additionally, the grounds include a pavilion with function rooms, bars, catering provision, extensive changing facilities and parking.
Best wishes and good luck,
