University of Westminster: news, forthcoming courses and sponsorship opportunities

Our friends at University of Westminster are keen to engage with the businesses of Baker Street Quarter, inviting you to get involved in a number of events and projects coming up over the next few months.

With its large campus building on Marylebone Road opposite Madame Tussauds, the University plays a key role in the local community. It is also officially the most diverse university in the UK, US, Australia and New Zealand (Hotcourses Diversity Index) with 58% of UK undergraduate students being the first in their family to go to university and 67% from Black Minority Ethnic backgrounds.

Sponsorship Opportunity

The University’s School of Architecture + Cities is inviting businesses to sponsor its first-year architecture students’ end of year exhibition, showcasing a year of outstanding work and creativity.

Westminster Working Cultures

The Wallace Collection recently hosted a group of University of Westminster students as part of the Westminster Working Cultures (WWC) programme – a University-wide initiative designed to enhance the employability of students.

The visit to the Wallace Collection consisted of a panel discussion on career journeys, key learnings, and advice for students as they navigate the world of work after graduation, followed by a tour of the museum.
