As a University of Westminster student at one of our central London or Harrow campuses, everything that London has to offer is on your doorstep. From the best gigs and biggest films to fantastic culture, unbeatable links with business and the buzz of this vibrant city.
Teaching Excellence Framework Award (TEF)
We are pleased to say that the University of Westminster has been rated Bronze against the TEF measures, meaning that “based on the evidence available, the TEF Panel judged that the University of Westminster delivers teaching, learning and outcomes for its students that meet rigorous national quality requirements for UK higher education.”
Student Life in London
They have four campuses in London, which are home to their five faculties. Three of their campuses are in central London and one is in Harrow, north-west London.
Our central London campuses comprise Cavendish Campus, Marylebone Campus and Regent Campus. Our Regent Campus is made up of three sites: our headquarters at 309 Regent Street, our Little Titchfield Street site and our Wells Street site. All our central London campuses are within walking distance of each other and enjoy enviable locations in the heart of London. As you can imagine, London is a big and wonderful city to experience University in. Any and everything is available within walking distance or a couple tube stops away. Something is always happening from exhibitions to concerts to rooftop bars. But if you need a little quiet time, huge greens like Hyde Park and Greenwich Park all provide great places to relax and unplug too.
One of the first things to do is get an Oyster card. You can top it up online, at stations, or in newsagents where you see the Oyster pre-pay symbol. It works out much cheaper than paying for travel cards and single journeys. Full-time students, and some part-time students, can apply for a student Oyster card, which allows you to save as much as 33% on fares. Instead of automatically jumping on the tube, make sure you check out your local bus routes first.
A single bus journey costs just £1.50 when you use your Oyster card and it’s a brilliant way of getting to know the city above ground. Additionally, cycling can save you a small fortune. There are plenty of cycle paths in case you’re worried about safety or getting lost. Don’t have a bike? Register with Santander Cycles, or Boris Bikes as they are sometimes known, and you can hop on and off at handy locations across the city.
The Choral Society, a part of the Centre for Performing Arts, is a choir that was founded some 5 years ago. Since then it has developed into a strong and close-knit society for people with a passion for singing to come together. We sing songs from a wide range of different genres, and at the Choral Society, everyone is welcome! Our rehearsals, led every Tuesday evening by an external musical director, are held at Regents Campus.
We want to help our fellow students to gain more knowledge about the gentlemen world. The average person spends more than 20 hours a week at University, with maybe another 20 spent working at home and will sleep 40h a week, so we want to spend some time with you having fun! We’ll do loads of tutorials, teach you the basics and will introduce you into the different aspects of the adult world! Of course we’ll have many outing and fun nights in bars and pubs in London.
Be a muggle, a witch, a wizard, or even a squib, all are welcome! You don’t have to be a fan to join but you might leave as one. They are a brand new society! Come to our events to watch movies, engage in debates, play HP inspired games and compete to win the monthly house cup! They also award points to attendees who wear HP related clothing and jewellery! Feel free to done those roaring lion hats and be as Loony as you wish! Joining the society will be a chance not only to have fun but also to make friends and to participate in fun activities. So grab your wands and your robes for a magical year!
The ambitions to this organisation is to offer a musical platform for Westminster students over the music industry. Whether that is producers needing to embark their work to the next level, being distributed over social media like our own Website, Soundcloud & Facebook. Or giving the chance for artists to perform at our own held events, in particular, DJ’s and MC’s. This society will organise club-nights. This is not only a positive for Westminster students to show what they’ve got. But is also a chance for Westminster students to get out and check the events out! They want to offer fresh music to the table, given their own students. To give that electric fresh vibe to the SU.
We are a new society launched in November 2015 and are welcoming all students across every campus. Whether you currently study a creative subject or just enjoy art as a hobby, we want to give everyone the opportunity to be involved! Taught workshops, art fairs, exhibition visits, social events, guest speakers and a great way to meet students that have the same interests as you!
