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.

Modern & innovative teaching facilities

UWS London Campus is wifi enabled with a spacious computer lab to ensure that all students have free, unlimited access to their email and the internet. A partnership with Microsoft – the Microsoft Campus Agreement – allows access to the latest Microsoft products for use on personal computers, on or off campus.

The campus has a modern and spacious lecture theatre and well-equipped classrooms providing a dynamic environment for learning from our experienced teaching staff. The campus’ learning hub contains our library facilities and computer stations for library catalogue access, electronic services and other internet resources. Students are also able to borrow or use books and journals at other university libraries in London through our SCONUL (Society of College, National and University Libraries) membership. The learning hub has a number of collaborative learning spaces, and also provides a quiet study area. A careers adviser is on campus to support students in preparing for successful employment.

Invited speakers from industry attend the campus to share their experiences with students, and the campus careers staff also run networking events and help students to connect with businesses.

English Language Courses to Support your Studies

Gaining entry to a UWS course requires you to be able to demonstrate proficiency in English language. However, UWS also offers pre-sessional English language courses which are designed for students who hold a conditional offer from UWS and need to improve their English language level before starting their degree.

Plenty of entertainment and relaxation options

UWS London Campus is right in the heart of London and the area surrounding the campus offers plenty of entertainment and relaxation options for anything from a quick study break to a great day out.
There are lots of coffee shops, cafes and restaurants if you have some spare time between lectures and the surrounding areas offer a wealth of leisure facilities and visitor attractions (e.g. Borough Market, London Bridge, Southbank Centre and the Old Vic Theatre) so there is a huge range of options on offer to suit everyone. We are also just a short trip from central London with its outstanding art galleries, museums, shopping and street markets.

There are a number of leisure centres nearby operated by Southwark Council if you want to take part in sporting activities. UWS students are also entitled to use the nearby London Southbank University Sports Academy at a discounted rate (current membership offer of £21 per month or £16 by direct debit).

Students' Association

UWS has a proactive and dynamic Students' Association and all UWS students automatically become a member of the Students' Association. They are here to support you during your time at UWS and all students can be active in the Students' Association by joining a society or getting support to set one up. Societies are a great way for you to make friends and meet new people. They can also allow you to develop some of the skills that you have learned in your studies.
