Westminster International University in Tashkent

Westminster International University in Taskkent

Uzbekistan has a rich history and was for centuries part of the ancient Great Silk Road where different cultures, traditions and ideas converged.

Founded in collaboration with the University of Westminster and the Foundation of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan in 2002, Westminster International University in Tashkent (WIUT) became the first international university in Uzbekistan. WIUT represents a distinctive model of UK Transnational Education (TNE) and an example of a unique and sustainable British-Uzbek partnership and has now established itself as a prominent internationally validated University in Central Asia.

WIUT students are taught by an academic team with significant international experience, using a dynamic student centred teaching and learning philosophy. From the first cohort of 120 students in 2002 it is now home to a study body of nearly 3,000 students. This expansion has been supported by major local investment and development in the campus which offers state of the art equipment and facilities.

Tashkent is a beautiful city with an eclectic combination of ancient and modern. The city boasts a great number of places to visit to experience the rich culture and the University campus is located in the very city centre but set among pleasant green open spaces.

Why study at WIUT

WIUT provides internationally recognised courses at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. All programmes and courses offered at WIUT are designed and validated in partnership with the University of Westminster and are subject to the same quality assurance and control regulations as those taught in the UK. Classes at WIUT are taught in English, entry requirements and all degree certificates meet the international standards.

Students are introduced to the culture and style of UK higher education and the increasing number of international students at WIUT creates a real global diversity within classroom and teaching environment. Graduates from WIUT now play an important role in the development of Uzbek society and Central Asian communities as a whole.

In June 2016 the Westminster International University in Tashkent (WIUT) welcomed Politics and International Relations students from the University of Westminster for the first ever jointly delivered WUIT-UoW Exchange Summer School 2016.
