A core part of our partnership work at Westminster is the Student as Co-Creators Programme. This initiative provides opportunities and resources for students and staff to work together on research projects and enhance learning and teaching at the University of Westminster.
The programme gives you an opportunity to share your perspectives and ideas, shape your learning experiences, build networks and develop skills in team-working, leadership, communication, research, giving presentations, and managing projects and budgets. These experiences will support your academic careers while also helping you to gain important skills to enhance your employability.
