Why West London?

Our West London campus is located in what is widely regarded as being one of the most desirable places in London to live. There is a free bus available to all students which connect the two sites, Ealing and Brentford, just 10 minutes apart. Both towns combine a vibrant, cosmopolitan atmosphere with spacious parks and relaxed cafe culture. The area is safe, beautiful, multicultural and close to both London Heathrow Airport and the very centre of the city of London.

The Ealing site of our West London campus features state-of-the-art student facilities including a refurbished Students’ Union, music studios, an auditorium, the Paul Hamlyn library, restaurants and cafes, and much more.

The Berkshire Institute for Health, situated in Reading, is in walking distance of the main railway and bus stations, adjacent to car parking and within easy reach of the town's 'park and ride' bus stops. People come from miles around to sample Reading's shopping and nightlife. With the University of Reading in the same town, there is plenty of entertainment aimed at students and lots to do.  You can get to London Paddington by train in less than 30 minutes.

What our students say

A group of students

'I chose the University of West London because of the strategic location of the university, which is very close to central London and in a quiet, safe and friendly area. The University offers amazing support to international students with English courses and an office dedicated to helping us. There is an active student union organising different events to make friends, and the employment service helped me find a job very easily and has supported me to build my CV.'
