University of West London students from other institutions study with us for one or two semesters

We welcome students from other institutions to study with us for one or two semesters.

It’s your opportunity to experience studying in another country while also obtaining credits which can be used towards your degree at your home institution.

We offer a comprehensive catalogue of cultural trips and activities as a way of ensuring you have as rich experience with us as possible. These may include:

  • a trip to Windsor and the Royal residences
  • visits to historical London sites such as St Paul’s Cathedral, Tower of London, Houses of Parliament and a number of famous London museums and cultural sites

Similarly, we organise a two week induction programme with the International Team in conjunction with the Students Union to help you adjust to life and study in the UK. These include film nights, guest speakers, social events and more.

UWL students can also benefit from easy access to Heathrow Airport, allowing for quick and affordable trips to cities all around Europe.
