I chose this University because I thought it was the best way to meet my different goals, which were discover another culture, another way of working, meet different people from everywhere because London is a very cosmopolitan city, and finally because English universities are renowned for the quality of their teaching. The University of Westminster has an amazing campus situated in the heart of central London, has very qualified teachers, and a way of teaching that is very interesting and stimulating.
