University of Westminster

  • The University of Westminster was founded as Britain's first polytechnic in 1838. Since then it has developed into a university that combines both metropolitan and cosmopolitan dimensions, and which is closely involved in business, professional and academic life within London, as well as overseas.The University has always been, and continues to be, imaginative in recognising new needs and developing appropriate offerings for its many target markets. The University also has a strong and historic commitment to promoting equality and embracing diversity. As a place to work or to study, it strives to strengthen our reputation as a welcoming and inclusive organisation.Westminster's academic activities are organised into seven faculties and schools, within which there are around 45 departments. The University has numerous centres of research excellence across all the faculties.

  • The UK and England's capital and one of the world?s most visited cities, London is a city rich in history with something to offer everybody. Resting on the iconic River Thames and with a population of over 13 million people, London has been a major settlement for over two millennia.With an abundance of history, culture, art and architecture, London also offers a wealth of restaurants, cafes, museums, bars, clubs and pubs. An easy city to adapt to, it is home to many Australian ex-patriots who are in love with the London lifestyle.

  • The university has produced several notable alumni including government ministers, ambassadors, judges, a Nobel Prize winner, and alumni who have been influential in the fields of science, literature, music, sport, architecture and the visual arts.
