Even though the university of west London is a rather small university, the facilities it offers are fantastic! the halls of residence are pretty good as you get an ensuite bathroom and a great view of London. The university also provides a free uni bus, which means that you are able to travel between the Brentford and Ealing campus for free! along with stops at a couple of tube stations which is rather handy. The uni bus also has free wifi onboard, which is helpful as it helps to save the amount on internet you use on your phone! The University of West London is also known as a 'career's university' thus meaning that they provide plenty of opportunities for students to gain jobs, during and after university as they hold graduate and job opportunity fairs. There are also many societies that the university offers, meaning that there is a society for everyone! As a current 2nd year about to go into my 3rd year I can fully well say that i've had a great time at West London University

While I was studying Events Management, I noticed lots of new plasma TVs showing the same uni advertisement and heard that a couple of departments were letting lecturers go and employing cheaper staff. The classes were so large that I didn't feel a connection with the teachers and generally didn't enjoy going to lectures. I felt lectures were filled by unqualified staff ( admitting that they're not very good at the topic but are teaching it anyway), and some of my classes were filled with pointless group exercises. Most of what we were learning wasn't useful for the essays we were writing so it made me feel like 'what am i actually doing here?'.

Amazing staff, amazing support, amazing teaching. You actually learn career focussed skills. One of the best residence in the UK. Really nice area, free uni bus, modern facilities, great nights.

The Music Technology Specialist course didn't make me a specialist in any way. I didn't learn anything more that I didn't already know from my previous course (music technology in college). I don't see any perspective for getting the job in my specialist field although the UWL advertises itself as "The Career University". The studios are great but availability is very limited.

I'm a current student of UWL and it's a really good university in my opinion. It's like a family rather than a building that people go to. But like family, you have to meet them first which is why during my first year, I felt isolated. But my second year was amazing because I met people from the SU, began working for the uni and socialized a lot more.
