excellent campus and location!!
Because of covid i would say its been harder to find out about things through online websites and such. But generally its a good university
I have loved studying at the university of Westminster. The different campuses to access and the huge library set up in numerous buildings are a highlight for me. I do wish there were more sports societies closer to the other campuses.
I love this place. I satisfy everything. People are really super mega kind.
One of the best music schools in the world.
Very good sixth form college, very friendly teachers
Since , I live in in arcade iQ for 2 years . I really nice place and I can recommend everyone
A good university that struggles to deal with the set backs of covid
Good source of knowledge and teachers and really helpful. Specially the architecture because of their labs and design studios provides latest tech to produce realistic projects.
My student experience is fantastic!
Wouldn't know too much as ive only been going for a few months and try to go lesson then go straight home.
I did two degrees as an international student at this university. 5 years I dedicated to this institution to be completely taken advantage of and unsupported. My MA fell under lockdown where i had 0 in person class time, had a traumatic injury that caused me to postpone my dissertation date and now they have taken away my 2 year graduate visa. They do not care about your well-being or career success, only your money. Biggest waste of my life so not support this institution.
Great school and great people Loved the whole experience
University is alright, online revision is great because it has recorded lectures so revision is easier
Good experience studying in uni
Amazing university, very student friendly,
The university is pretty good and thoughtful for students. I study in regent street and I really love the campus. It has a long history and is managed very well.
Westminster is great as the my choose will help me in my career
It is a good university that provides lots of resources and opportunities to gain experience from companies.
Good place to study. Hoping to bring in the change in my life.
I've done both my Bachelors and my Masters there. The professors are lovely and great at communicating if you have problems, which is so important.
Buildings a built outdated, hard to socialise as there are mainly international students who ready have their groups
Not the best. Not the worst. Just do your best.
Uni was hard but people were cool
Personally I don’t really like the university, the foundation degree I started on was falsely advertised about the course so I ended up studying something I didn’t want to do. The work I submitted was critisced regularly as the lecturers didn’t personally like it, I study photography so they were very judgemental about a lot of things. Overall I wouldn’t recommend this university as they never showed much attitude towards me as an individual and we’re more focused on the work being tailored to their preferences despite the quality of it.
God the teaching here is awful, for 9,000 pounds you'd think you would get more than one lesson a week.
Love my course and teachers very much. I've been to campus exactly 1 time during my first year and it was very exciting and cool, everything went smooth BUT I'm very disappointed that I spent a year paying for teams lectures and drawing in my dorm room. I'm still debating whether or not this was worth the trouble of moving countries.
Well, I had the best three years of my life at the University of Westminster (2017-2020). I was based at the Harrow campus, a couple of minutes walking distance from the town of Harrow which has plenty of shops and places to eat. Facilities at Harrow campus were great. The library is on three floors, with thousands of books and areas dedicated for private study. The teaching staff who taught me for my degree were all brilliant. All were helpful and supportive and made the lectures, workshops and seminars interesting and engaging. Despite being older than most of the other students (I was at the tail end of my 20s when I started my degree), I found it easy to get along with almost everyone and I met and befriended some really lovely people from all over the world. I am proud of the University of Westminster. No, it isn't a Russell Group uni, but in my view it is hands down the best university in London - in fact, the whole UK. I am so grateful for my time there.
amazing uni. love it. wasn't able to go in too often due to pandemic but otherwise really nice.
Westminster University is the worse university ever. Please, do not waste your money in studying there!!!!!
I had some of the best years of my life at this university, there was a great social and community at the Harrow campus. I enjoyed my course and the team leaders were very supportive and encouraging.
Harrow campus is lovely but miles away from the city. Students from abroad will be shocked if they are told that their study would take a place in the heart of London. Some lecturers are fairly good. University's student service staff is not helpful, provides poor service.
Without doubt , the WORST university in London (if not the whole of UK). Don't be fooled the 5-start reviews here...they were probably posted members of staff of the university. Academically it is horrible, welcome to textbooks and the Youtube...and you will pay at least £9250 (more you are an overseas student) for that privilege. Want good lecturers, helpful and available tutors? You won't get any of that at Westminster. (It is 92nd on the UK University League Table in 2020). Unsurprisingly, the degrees issues here are largely regarded as worthless on the job market. I graduated in Law LLB in 2016. Despite gaining a 2:1 degree and relevant legal experience, my earning are still the same as they were prior to my enrollment at Westminster. I still have, however, a £27.000 debt to the Student Loan Company...that has not gone down in 4 years... All in all: avoid the University of Westminster. Go somewhere else.
Great uni with amazing location
very satisfying in all aspects.
good uni, decent staff and helpful only when repeteadly asked for support
I did my Bachelor's and Master's at the university of Westminster. I had a great experience and I am very much going to miss it, the campus facilities are very useful and the staff are very friendly and supportive. It is a diverse atmosphere with students from different backgrounds and cultures it is a very welcoming and supportive environment.
This is truly one of the WORST institutions in the UK. I did masters in architecture there and trust me, it was a complete waste of money. The staff is so utterly useless, my tutors had no clue and didn't care. The lectures were also extremely useless, I learned more during CPDs at the architecture practice I worked in as a Part 1. The assignments were useless - you don't end up learning anything, they are just tick box exercises. On top of that, it is all 100% independent study, no guidance from tutors whatsoever..welcome back to google and youtbe! This is a shout out to everybody who is about to waste their money by doing masters there...go to a different university where staff actually have dignity about what they do and trying to help you.
I'm in my second year and losing all hope. I hate myself for choosing this uni. 1 hour lecture per week, the seminar that follows that lecture is the most useless thing on the planet. We also have a 3 hour workshop, doing nothing. It's mostly independent study, youtube and google. I can literally pass this semester by staying at home. I came here to vent because my depression and anxiety is at the highest it's ever been. I can't believe I'm going to be in debt for i don't know how many years of my life because of my own stupidity. Just don't come here. It's not worth your time and money.
I study at Harrow Campus which is nice and big. The library is brilliant, there is a separate floor for silent study which I love, as well as a floor for group/social study. The societies are lacking a bit, there's not many and they are not very well advertised, so I found it hard to actually join any. There's a lot on offer from the careers service, I'm in my 3rd year so I will be making use of some of these services very soon but I haven't yet. The other students at Harrow campus are really nice and artsy, honestly feels like a very welcoming, open and inclusive university.
I had a very bad experience at the University of Westminster. The teaching methods and the teachers are completely useless. Really big waste of money as no one is there to actually teach anything. A part from the facilities and the photography technicians everything else is really bad trained and not helpful at all. I studied Contemporary Media Practice, and I think there is nothing worse then that course. Anything I learned is what I learned from internet, the only good things are the facilities and the fact that you can use them ( when they work, cause if they don't work, they take a very long time to fix them).
The most racist and ableist institution in the United Kingdom. If you are of Jewish of Romani Gypsy origin, or you are simply disabled you should never , I repeat, never even consider coming to this place. There are other, better universities in London where you would actually feel welcome and treated fairly.
I am currently here as a study abroad student and let me say that I am so happy I only chose to stay for a semester, I would have withdrew had I chosen the year by now. I am so incredibly unhappy with the type of students that go here and the way everything is set up from the lectures to the accommodations. As much as they try to convince you, Westminster is not a great university, they practically accept everyone and it shows. Had I not spent over 10k to come here as an international student, I would have left by now and accepted the loss of a semester (I’m still considering it though). The only way you’ll be happy here is if you love to party and hang out with friends, if you’re here to get an education then run the other way. I’ve been here for two weeks and I’ve never experienced such intense depression, anxiety, and alienation in my life. I’m about ready to kiss goodbye thousands of dollars just to save my mental health. If you have high standards for education, do not come here.
I went to this uni in 2001 to study Business Information Technology. I enjoyed my time hear especially student life. However was a let down due to one prejudiced teacher. No one of colour in his class got good grades and it was a bitter pill to swallow for some. One group of Asians and white person even collaborated and quality work was similar but they didn't get the marks they thought they would whilst the white dude got good grades. I also got poor grades and thought he was a racist though I didn't say anything to anyone. But my thoughts were validated when several students claimed he was racist and why they thought he was. I didn't make a fuss as I experienced something similar in college. I hope my children don't have to go through something similar. They would need to get in to a good establishment to avoid these scenarios.
Fantastic university, with equipment and staff that excel. Challenging at every opportunity but also supportive and engaging.
Really enjoy my time at the Uni. Lots of supportive staff especially in the first years.
i went around a number of alumni to find the puuuuuurfect one for me and this was it, very happy i came here
Very good university to study your undergraduate or post graduate course
I am sorry to say this experience is not what I expected. The focus on the social sciences instead of arts confused me, as I was studying Museums,Galleries and Contemporary Culture.The approach is rather theoretical and philosophical with little or zero aplicability in practice. Instead you are asked to do things that you have never done before like a professional curator, without being explained how. You can only guide yourself on the internet or the past assessements of the previous students. A very hard task, and they think that leaving you alone means to test your "creativity".Some feedbacks are biased and no information about how to do things right if they think you are wrong. You have the impression you have learnt nothing that would help you on. your future career path
A very bad University. The quality of teaching is very poor. Most tutors/lecturers (with a few exception) are poorly trained. or simply don't care. Tutor feedback is almost non-existent. If you are a disabled student, you are likely to face accessibility problems. The admissions are also bad, lots of immature students who bring the rest down. Choose a better university.
Very good university. I like the help I get, without pressure. Before I joined I noticed they answered all my emails (compared to other universities, who ignored my emails) I have known previous Westminster students who have ended up with excellent jobs.
I would not recommend this University to anyone. If you are a parent reading this, I would strongly you NOT to let your child go to this University. Plenty of lecturers/tutor do not seem to be qualified for this job. (Albeit some were good). The campus was overcrowded and had accessibility issues. Careers Service and the Student Union were useless compared to other universities. Just go to a university more worth your time and money. Admissions are terrible, most students on my course were immature.
A potential gem of London, but tarnished by poor management, lack of leadership, and not student-oriented service.
I could go on and on to write a lot of stuff about this university but I will keep it to the minimum. as a postgradute student at westminster university, It has been the worse year of my life. If you are reading this and you are parents, I highly suggest not to allow your sons or daughters to apply for this university. It is full of people who are not mature at all and also the lecturers are not helful at all from every prespective. I went to a different university before and when I applied to do my masters at Westminster University, I lost the hope of become the person that I always wanted to be with my first class LLB Law Degree. It does not offer anything than depression, anxiety and low self-esteem. paying £9000 for your course will just go down the drain and you will not meet people who are acting like adults. very unprofessional individuals god have brought to this university, as I was one of the unlucky one, with high expectation and qualifications.
This school is not worth going to. I spent a semester here and the admissions are terrible, the classes are more like independent studies. I feel like I could have learned most of the stuff taught from a book. Good teachers but the curriculum does not help it students grow at all.
I'm done caring about this just go to a different university more worth your time
The Campus was overcrowded and often had accessibility issues. The Students Union and the Career Service were useless compared to better universities.
This is the absolute WORST university I have attended in my life. I am a study abroad student and if you are looking to study in London, stay WELL AWAY from this uni. My first week here both elevators for the residence hall were broken and I had to lug my 2 suitcases up 12 FLIGHTS OF STAIRS. Throughout the semester, they would get stuck and be out of order (which is a huge inconvenience for the handicap). They do a fire alarm test every thursday morning at 10:30. Staff comes into your room even if you are not there, to change the shower head, do bug control inspections, etc. There is mad construction outside the university waking us up around 7am every morning. You need your student ID to tap into and out of the Marylebone campus. They only provide 6 scanners so its a cluster f*** when people are trying to get in and out. The staff will not let you bring any friend back to your room with you without signing them in, providing them with a temporary pass. This uni is S***.
Do not come to this university. The teachers are really biased when it comes to grading. They all want you to fail and they do not support you nor your work. Poor teaching as well. It does have potential.
The university is quite cheap when it comes to the facilities and campuses, especially central. They are often crowded, load, it is impossible to conduct the self-study. The Union is perhaps helpful, but i never needed any help from them. Careers Service never came to help either. There is some variety of clubs, but it feels like the choice might be better.
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.
DO NOT COME HERE, it is too late for me but you should save yourself, very poor material, the teacher is not able to teach just reads from slides with wrong information. don't waste your time and money
Very impressive Uni. Great facilities!
All good, good location. great library, classrooms, ... all in good conditions and designed.
Decent experience - would recommend to others.
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.
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.
Tutors and modules - good Administration- ugh
Good uni, good campus, great course, awesome being in London
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.
Central London location, 24/7 library and really good networking events. Also amazing academic staff and support.
The University has gone beyon my expectations, the teaching staff are very friendly and always open to help the best they can.
Westminster is a great place to study. Situated in the heart of London, you build so many great connections and meet so many people around the world.
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.
Friendly university whilst having a great support and meeting new people
