5 September 2013

Join us in celebrating 175 years of student innovation at the University of Westminster.

Date: Wednesday 23 October, 2-4pm
Venue: Marylebone Campus

We've been at the forefront of pioneering teaching and innovation since 1838, providing education for all, regardless of background or financial status. This year, we're celebrating our 175th anniversary and there have already been a variety of events to mark this special year.

On 23 October, there will be a very special event to celebrate the outstanding achievements of you, our students, and we're delighted that HRH Prince Richard, the Duke of Gloucester, will also be joining us.

The event will give you the chance to see the innovative projects that students here are working on, as well as find out more about the University's history.

To join us, just let us know you'll be coming by  registering on Eventbrite by 4 October.

Light refreshments will be served at the event.
