The University of West London

At the University of West London, we pride ourselves on delivering career-focused courses with excellent teaching and a great student experience.

Students acting on a stage

We have one of the UK’s most diverse student communities and welcome students from traditionally underrepresented groups:

  • 57% of our students are mature (over 21) on entry
  • 63% are from black Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds (UWL 2023 Annual Report).

Central London is just a few stops away on the Tube from both of our west London sites in Ealing and Brentford.

Industry-led teaching and specialist career advice makes us a great choice for career success. A wide range of placements are available during your studies.

UWL has a number of scholarships and bursaries available for new and current students.

Advice and support on careers, placements, money, accommodation, health, faith and study support is available every step of the way for students. UWL also offers lifetime careers support.
