Westminster Working Cultures

Westminster Working Cultures provides students with the opportunity to travel abroad and experience the professional environment and culture in cities across the globe. The programme is designed to enhance your employability and develop skills that will help you after graduation. You’ll visit a number of leading and diverse organisations utilising University of Westminster alumni and partner contacts. 

Trips last at least a week and are open to all full-time undergraduate students.

Launched in June 2017, the first group of students travelled to Hong Kong where they undertook a combination of work shadowing, seminars and workshops offered by Westminster alumni.

Industry related international experience is of enormous benefit to students preparing for graduate working life, and offering our students this sort of experience - highly valued by graduate employers - is a central priority for the University.

Professor Alex Hughes, Deputy Vice Chancellor – Global Engagement 

The Alumni and the Outward Mobility Teams have joined forces with partner institutions and senior alumni based in locations around the world to offer students a unique short-term experience of life in each city, its history and culture.
