At Westminster, our students are at the heart of what we do. We take pride in the wide range of support and services we offer, to help enhance our students experience during and after their time with us.
Every student is assigned a personal tutor for the duration of their studies. Through regular tutorials, your tutor will support you in your academic studies and other support services as you progress through your journey at University.
Academic Skills workshops, one-to-one appointments, Academic Liaison Librarians and our Disability Learning Support team are all on hand to offer expert guidance and tips to develop the skills you may need to succeed during your studies at Westminster.
We encourage our students to get involved with as many activities and opportunities as possible to make the most out of university life. There are many areas that our students can get involved to ensure they have their say on key decisions affecting them, make friends and be a part of the Westminster community.
When you enrol at Westminster, you automatically become a member of the University of Westminster Students’ Union (UWSU) - an independent organisation that is run by students, for students. The Students' Union is there to represent your needs as a student, protect your rights and make sure your voice is heard when key decisions are made at the University.
In addition to its work representing you, the Students' Union helps make your time here both productive and fun with a calendar of social events, extracurricular activities and range of sports clubs and societies.
Employers want much more than just graduates with a good degree.
At Westminster, we believe that studying at university should prepare you for the world of work and enhance your professional life. We place as much emphasis on improving the employability of our students as we do on the academic discipline.
From the start of your student journey, throughout your studies and after graduation you will have access to several initiatives and schemes such as Westminster Employability Award, studying or working abroad and our dedicated Career Development Centre. They all help you to build and develop transferable skills, network with potential employers and prepare for the ever-changing graduate job-market.
