UWS London Campus Update

Following rapid and significant growth in the student population on our London Campus we are seeking new premises to allow us to continue to expand and deliver an outstanding student experience in London.

As we begin this process, we will have one final intake in the current campus for academic year 2019/20 in November 2019; applications for this intake are now CLOSED.

We are planning our next intake in London, in September 2020, to coincide with our new campus opening.

In the meantime, if you are keen to study with UWS, we would be delighted to discuss study options in Scotland.
