The Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment is one of the few in the UK to bring together all the disciplines that inform the design and development of our cities. From architecture to transport, construction to tourism, property to urban design, housing to planning – the various subject areas are all central to discussions about urban futures, and because they are all brought together under one roof there is the opportunity for working across normal professional boundaries.
Tourism continues to be a major component of the global economy and has now become an established academic discipline with roots in geography, economics, sociology, planning and business. The University of Westminster has 20 years of expertise in tourism education and research, and we are ranked as the top London university offering tourism degrees (2013 Guardian rankings). Our long history dating back to the 1830s includes a significant association with the early years of tour operating in Europe, and with the Olympic Games held in London in 1908 and 1948.
We believe that field trips can make a huge contribution to student learning and course enjoyment and we take full advantage of our superb location to make visits to London hotels, event venues, visitor attractions and cultural sites.
