All our courses are running as scheduled and we are planning to start the next Academic Year in September.
While we may need to start some of our courses wholly online, we will be preparing to welcome all our students to our campuses as soon as it is safe to do so and in line with Government guidance. We expect those with a more practical focus to be the first to return.
Whatever the way you start your Westminster experience – online, on campus or a blend of these – you can be assured of a warm welcome at our University, where your wellbeing and the quality of your education are our priorities.
All applicants can be assured that at Westminster we take a holistic approach to your application and we will consider the whole application when receiving your current qualifications. If you have not been able to achieve the results you hoped for and meet the conditions of your offer, we will ensure we give you the best opportunity to fulfil your potential.
We are constantly monitoring the situation and will of course allow students as much time as we can to complete the application process. Please note however, that there are still UCAS deadlines for undergraduate applicants to be met, and if you need to apply for a visa to take up your studies, you will need to complete the admissions process in time to apply for your visa.
Yes, we are open for applications for September 2020. You should still apply in the normal way. Details of how to apply and all current entry requirements can be found on our course pages.
We would still advise you to accept your offer by the stated deadline, however if you are unable to do so, offers will not be withdrawn. You should contact your Admissions Officer to advise them of your situation.

Currently we are still planning to hold enrolment in September. Applicants who require a visa can begin to apply for their CAS in June. Applicants will be contacted if this changes.
The Housing Portal will open for applications on 27 April.
Providing that you have a course offer from the University of Westminster and you meet all other eligibility criteria, you can apply with your provisional or predicted grades confirmed by your school/college. Any scholarship offer will be conditional on your final results.
If you have any mitigating circumstances, you should advise us as soon as possible and a letter from your school, college or university should be sent to us to confirm this.
We have reviewed many of our entry requirements and applicants should have already received an email advising them of these changes. Please check your course details pages for further information.
If you are taking a level 3 qualification, in the UK, you should still receive a grade based on work completed so far. Universities will receive some of these results directly from UCAS and for other qualifications, applicants will need to forward these to us. Details of exam results that are forwarded directly to universities from UCAS can be found on the UCAS website.
If you are taking qualifications outside of the UK and you have been advised that you will not be receiving a result or the results you will be awarded are going to change, please advise us as soon as possible. We are reviewing the entry criteria for each country as we receive official confirmation of changes to their grading system of awarding criteria.
If you require a visa to study in the UK, we will still need to evidence your qualifications to meet the UKVI requirements, before a CAS can be issued. We understand that it may not be possible to obtain original certification so at this stage scanned copies will be accepted.
Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee accommodation as the applications are processed on a first come first served basis. If a student defers, they will need to make a new application when the Housing Portal opens for the term they have deferred to.
Yes, for most courses we allow applicants to defer for one year. Please contact your Admissions Officer if you wish to defer your place.
As all staff are currently working remotely, we cannot accept any documents by post. Please scan and email any document to us.
At this time we appreciate that it may be difficult to obtain the documents you need, and many countries will be delayed in supplying results. We will allow applicants as much time as possible to supply documents, however, if you are applying via UCAS for an undergraduate course, the current UCAS deadline is 31 August. If you require a Tier 4 visa to continue your studies in the UK, you will also need to submit all the required documentation to apply for your CAS and obtain your visa.
Yes, if you are unable to obtain a formal transcript or certificate, a letter from your school, college or university will be accepted.
