The University of West London is ranked as the top modern university* (formed post 1992) in London, 8th modern university in the UK and 56th university nationally by The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2018. 98% of our graduates are in employment or further study within six months of graduation (HESA in 2018) and they achieve the second highest starting salaries of all the London modern universities.
The University has an exemplary record in extending the reach of higher education to those who have been traditionally excluded from it. Since our origin more than a century and a half ago, the University of West London and its precursors have been intertwined with the locality. Local residents understand the enormous benefits the University brings and collaboration and partnerships have never been stronger.
