The University of Westminster is a public university in London, United Kingdom. Its antecedent institution, the Royal Polytechnic Institution, was founded in 1838 and was the first polytechnic institution in the UK.It  is a forward thinking and dynamic place to study.

With a strong emphasis on internationalisation, the university today opens its doors to over 22,000 students, hailing from every continent.

It is arranged across four campuses, three in central London (Cavendish, Marylebone and Regent Street) and one (Harrow) in north-west London, and comprises five faculties: the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment, the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, Westminster Business School, Westminster Law School, and Westminster School of Media, Arts and Design.

 It is one of London’s leading centres for professional business education. Offering a wide range of innovative and practice focused programmes including MBA, professional and executive education courses. The School has a large and diverse academic body with extensive business, consultancy and research achievements. Accredited by leading professional bodies and collaborating in numerous international partnerships, the School engages in providing business expertise in consultancy, applied research and thought leadership to the industry. Westminster Business School continues to be committed to supporting organisational success.

The university’s central London location benefits from nearby access to the city’s many cultural attractions, while a recent £20m investment in its facilities has resulted in Westminster being able to offer fully-equipped sports facilities to students, as well as specialist resources, such as the purpose-built Financial Markets Suite.

It also has its own gallery spaces for the display of contemporary art and architecture, where exhibitions, events and public talks regularly take place.

Internationalisation, employability and sustainability are key elements of the university's vision for the future.

COST OF LIVING

London is an expensive city to live in. It is also a lot of fun and it can be very tempting (and easy) to overspend when you first arrive. You need to be careful not to run out of funds after the first few months. This means planning your money carefully and budgeting to make sure you don’t spend beyond your means. You will probably need at least £1000 a month as a minimum
