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.

Home to nearly 1200 students from all over the world

Located in a vibrant part of the city, a short walk from central London (15-minute walk from London Bridge underground), UWS's London Campus offers modern study facilities and attractive accommodation options in one of the most exciting cities in the world. Close to the City - a global hub for financial and business institutions - the campus is right at the heart of the business world. 

The London Campus is home to nearly 1200 students from all over the world. Experienced teaching staff, many of whom are drawn from outside of the UK, add a global perspective to academic life at UWS. The campus currently offers UWS undergraduate and postgraduate courses in business, management, health, social sciences and music.
