University of Westminster, England

London

The University of Westminster boasts a rich history and has been providing students with academic excellence, cultural engagement and personal enrichment since its inception as The Polytechnic Institution in 1838.

A place for pioneers

The Westminster story began in 1838, when Sir George Cayley opened the Polytechnic Institution at 309 Regent Street in London. In 1881, philanthropist Quintin Hogg bought the Royal Polytechnic Institution building and moved his Young Men’s Christian Institute into 309 Regent Street, which soon became the publicly funded Regent Street Polytechnic.

Since then, Westminster has secured a reputation as a place for firsts. These include:

  • the first polytechnic in the UK (1838)
  • the opening of the first public photographic portrait studio in Europe (1841)
  • the venue for the first public moving picture show in the UK, organised by the Lumière brothers (1896)
  • organising the first marathon race (at the London Olympics) over the now traditional distance of 26 miles, 385 yards (1908)
  • offering the first degree courses in Photographic Science, Photography, and Media Studies (1960s and 1970s)
  • the first modern university to win the Queen’s Award for Enterprise – International Trade

University of Westminster rated Bronze in the new Teaching Excellence Framework

The United Kingdom has one of the best higher education offerings in the world, ranked third in the U21 2017 Global Rankings. This is, in part, due to the quality measures put in place by the UK government that all UK universities adhere to.

In 2017, a new quality measurement, the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF), was brought in to look specifically at teaching quality, the learning environment and student outcomes. The University of Westminster has been rated Bronze against the TEF measures, meaning that “based on the evidence available, the TEF Panel judged that the University of Westminster delivers teaching, learning and outcomes for its students that meet rigorous national quality requirements for UK higher education.”

The TEF judging panel also found particular evidence of:

  • The University of Westminster’s strategic approach and commitment to improving employment and entrepreneurship
  • The University’s consistent support for students at risk of non-continuation through personal tutoring and attendance monitoring
  • an established culture that facilitates, recognises and rewards excellent teaching

The TEF uses data gathered in the National Student Survey (NSS), the Destination of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey and from HESA, the experts in UK Higher Education Data to create the rating. Since the University of Westminster’s TEF metrics were submitted at the start of the year, it has achieved significant improvements in its DLHE results, seeing an 11 per cent rise in the proportion of employed full-time, first degree, UK graduates who are in professional or managerial-level employment. In the last two years, the University has seen the highest ever response rate to the NSS survey in its history.

The University is in the process of updating its strategy for the future of the University, and delivering high-quality teaching and creating an outstanding student experience and outcomes for its students remains at the heart of its offering as an institution. Already in that process the University has committed to the new assessment and feedback policy to guarantee that all students receive clear and timely feedback within 15 days of the assessment date, and have introduced personal academic tutors to support its students through their studies.

The University will continue to work on enhancing its performance and are committed to delivering the best experience for its staff, and learning environment and outcomes for its students and the new TEF provides a framework to measure its success in improving these metrics.

Students already at Westminster can expect to enjoy a diverse and inclusive university community that is committed to providing you with the best learning experience, career support and development through the University’s industry links and work experience placements and personal development through its study abroad and volunteering opportunities.
