Purpose, mission and values
We have always strived to create offerings that respond imaginatively to the varied needs and aspirations of our diverse audiences, and we have a firm and historic commitment to equality and diversity, building an environment that is welcoming and inclusive for all our students and colleagues.
We boast a rich and unique history and have been providing students with an education based on academic excellence, cultural engagement and personal enrichment since our inception as The Polytechnic Institution in 1838.
Study at Westminster
We deliver a wide variety of undergraduate, postgraduate and short courses from our three colleges and twelve schools.
The University has a long history of international collaboration and engagement, establishing and nurturing a range of global research and institutional partnerships, a worldwide alumni network and a variety of study and work abroad opportunities for students.
As London’s first university to be awarded the Social Enterprise Gold Mark, we aim to make a difference in the world by harnessing our resources, expertise and partnerships to effect sustainable social change with local, national and global impact.
