Explore our courses
The University is organised into three colleges: Westminster Business School, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and College of Design, Creative and Digital Industries and these operate across our five campuses. To help you get a feel for what we teach and how, we can run specialist academic and information sessions for staff or students at your school. These include presentations from individual departments and visits designed especially to answer your questions on specific courses and related careers.
Get help with your personal statement
If you or your students would like written feedback on a draft of a personal statement, send it our way. Drafts of personal statements for any course, either at undergraduate or postgraduate level, can be sent to email@example.com for one of our Student Recruitment Officers to take a look. This service is free and open all year. At busy times please allow more time for a response.
Arrange a presentation for your students
For your students, finding the right course at the right institution is just one of the many challenges of embarking on higher education. Ask one of our team to visit your school to talk to students about the practical aspects of going to university, including:
- applying to university and the UCAS process
- choosing a course and a university
- student life and why go to university
- student finance and sources of funding
- taster visits across our faculties (subject to availability)
There are many aspects to higher education in addition to the above so we can tailor visits to suit your needs, so please feel free to discuss your requirements with us using our contact details at the bottom of this page.
Tell your students about our open days
Our open days give potential students a chance to get more information about the subject they want to study and to get a glimpse of student life here. They’ll have the opportunity to attend a lecture, speak to academic staff and put their questions on accommodation, student finance and admissions to university staff.
Invite us to your careers fair
We know that higher education and UCAS fairs are a great way for your students to get the information they need to plan for going to university. We attend many local, regional and national fairs. If you are running an event and would like us to attend, please get in touch with the team.
Discover how we are widening participation
We are partners on a growing range of collaborative projects to encourage students from all backgrounds to take up higher education opportunities. These include:
- Linking London – dedicated to working collaboratively to identify opportunities and to meet the challenges of the changing educational landscape
- Routes in Languages – the programme includes a wide range of events and activities including taster days, summer schools and e-mentoring, to promote the take-up of languages from school to university
