Student profiles – United States of America
MA Museums, Galleries & Contemporary Culture
"My background is in Literature but I volunteered in a couple of museums and really wanted to pursue a museum career. I decided to do Museums, Galleries & Contemporary Culture MA course because there were a lot of practical elements and most of the class periods were held in museums with professionals."
BA Property with Business
"The first year was a bit more about finding your feet, but in the second and third year things become more serious, and we’ve had some very good lecturers. I know it’s important that we do a lot of independent reading and study, but when a lecturer comes in and starts talking about something, and explains it so that you can get it instantly, it makes such a difference."
BA Business management with International business
"In the UK it's a three-year, very focused course, whereas in the US it would be four years, and there would be a lot of extra credit to do. I'm a scholarship student, and the University of Westminster is one of the few that offers any funding to international undergraduate students."
BSc Physiology and Pharmacology
"For me, one of the high points of the course was the fact that everyone in the third year gets to do a research project, whereas most other universities only allow something like the top ten per cent to do a project. It’s extremely beneficial for anyone who plans to go on to do more studying and in the sciences that tends to be mostly necessary – you really do need a PhD or a Masters, going forward."
Master of Business Administration (MBA)
"The reason for selecting the University of Westminster was due to its location in London. It was important to do an International MBA in order to experience living in a different country and also learn how different cultures operate."
MA International Journalism
"As an international student, I found the University of Westminster to be extremely accommodating and supportive in all aspects of the application and enrolment process. In addition, the faculty were accomplished in their fields and enthusiastic to work with students."
MA Event & Conference Management - 2014
"I chose to study in the heart of London because it has a unique position as one of the world leaders in events. Being able to get hands on experience from some of the leaders of the UK event industry has been invaluable."
