The science and technology faculty lets down the entire university. Throught my time there I found the organisation to be very poor - last minute room changes, little communication, inconsistent lecturers and unhelpful administration staff. Students have to be VERY proactive and check everything done by staff as (for example) the admin staff didn't enroll me properly on one of my modules and I didn't have enough credits for my first year. The accommodation isn't very good being very overpriced and poorly maintained - people living in Wembley also end up spending £90+ a month just on their Oyster card for travel. However, the bursaries and help available to students are very generous. The SU is very hands on and some of the societies are brilliant. The other faculties (media, arts and design as well as humanities and law) seem to general have more positive than mine though. The university isn't generally well respected within London however.

Studying at University of Westminster

The University of Westminster is split over four sites; New Cavendish Street, Regent Street, Marylebone and Harrow. It has a Fairtrade status and aims to have as little impact on the environment as possible. In order to meet this aim the university has several projects to aid its 22,000 students and 2,500 staff including The LiFE Index to manage, measure and improve sustainability, the Community Food Growing Project and a Well-being Day that gives free advice and information on health and the environment.

The Students' Union can be found on the Marylebone campus and is known as 'UWSU'. It hosts all sorts of events in its nightclub and bars and is also the place to get involved in clubs and societies or spend time writing or broadcasting for Smoke Magazine, Smoke Radio or Smoke TV. There is also an annual student trip to Amsterdam and several fund-raising events throughout the year.

The university has many quality facilities for the arts, sports and study. Akimba P3 is a gallery for contemporary architecture and art and is dedicated to learning and connecting anyone with an interest while London Gallery West is an exhibition space to showcase the work of current students to inspire those that visit. The Regent Street Gym has been recently updated and now includes new equipment and a social space and The Sports Hall can be found on the Harrow Campus and can be used for netball, cricket, football and basketball, as well as these two facilities the Chiswick Sports Ground has several pitches and also a bar that overlooks the Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race. Each site has its own extensive library which is fully equipped with print facilities and e-learning resources.



For those students that want to get going with their career plans the Career Development Centre can help to give access to opportunities and volunteering, CV advice and interview practice. For everyday planning and resources, students can access Blackboard, an online facility that gives information on timetables, tests and lecture notes and enables students to do group coursework over the web.

The University of Westminster offers its students a chance to be ambassadors and represent the university to other colleges and schools, and talk to other students about student life. Also available to many is the opportunity to study abroad in either the USA, Northern Europe, New Zealand, Mexico, Canada or Australia. Not only will these experiences add skills and abilities to your CV but they will also help students develop in confidence and add a new dimension to life at the University of Westminster.

I've never met a bunch of more toxic and narcissistic and sometimes racist people in my life (photographic arts BA), and hopefully never will again. The staff are good as well as the facilities, but it is a toxic environment like nothing else I've seen.

Nice university, not too quiet not too busy, right on the edge of London. Best of both worlds. Students Union was very helpful to me.

The Photographic Arts degree is a very interesting arts degree, great teachers, challenging course work. But I've never met more narcissistic people in one place before. The students on that course are toxic.

Their Faculty of Science is a joke. Most unfriendly and homogeneous student body I ever encountered. Academic staff are lazy and unconcerned, it is common to have lectures cancelled or not hear back from tutors for weeks. Life Sciences department keeps pushing their alternative medicine programmes, which to my opinion only bring the credibility of the department down. Administration is either overwhelmed with work or just lax.

The university is very diverse, with great location in the heart of London. This allows students especially business students to network and make good contacts that will be very valuable after graduation and even can lead to potential work while at university. Great and very good trained staff with up to date data and courses taking into account recent trends.
