I have very bad experience with two universities in UK , but finally I am studying for my MSc Finance degree in UWL.. Honestly It is a very good university all lecturers , staff, student union very mcuh responsible and they value the students. I really enjoy my course in UWL with guidance of academic staff and support from non academic staff. I should mention career advice team is amazing. They will guide you right way and I recommend UWL for all students who really genuinely want to study in UK

As part of Creative Academy, separate from UWL, you benefit from a smaller campus space with plenty of dance specific equipment.

Lecturures and the SU go above and beyond to ensure your experience at the uni is good.Just a shame about some of the other staff.Do not bother to call up finance or ask any enquirees with them as you will probably get your head bitten of with some of the staffs rudeness (if you don’t want to work there then just leave lol?)I found that I had to sort most of my problems out myself because the staff didn’t seem to have a clue about their job role or anything at all for a matter of fact and some staff even accusing you of lying !Having this situation happen just before starting this university it made me think how is the teaching and other facilities going to be like if this is even before I started .But when the lectures started I found out that the lecturers are great, the university in itself is ideally placed and is very clean and modern.

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?'.

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.

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

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.
