Overview

The University of West London is based in Ealing and Brentford, West London, and after merging with several other local colleges, it was awarded full university status in 1992. When changing its name to The University of West London in 2011, it was awarded the most improved modern university for student satisfaction in 2011's National Student Survey. It currently hosts 12,000 students from over 100 different countries.

The University of West London was recently ranked the number one modern university in London and awarded the Queen’s Prize for contributions to hospitality. It is also particularly well known for producing musicians and music producers with artists such as Freddie Mercury and Pete Townshend amongst its alumni. Nursing is another strength, with students in the subject making up nearly a quarter of the student population.

Services for International Students

The International Office provides support for international students throughout their studies. Before the beginning of term, there is a two week international induction course, involving orientation and social activities. In addition, there is a free preparation course available four weeks before term starts and numerous English courses which begin in June and January.

Additionally the University of West London One Stop Shop team can offer advice and support on finance, accommodation, visa support and much more to help students feel as at home and comfortable as possible.

It is just 30 minutes on the underground from central London or 10 minutes by fast train to Paddington, with its huge range of theatres, cinemas and other entertainment

Heathrow Airport is extremely close by, while students flying in from Gatwick face just a short tube service to reach a direct 30-minute train to Gatwick.
