Welcome to the Westminster Business School
Congratulations on joining the Westminster Business School, and welcome to the University of Westminster.
We think it is important to give you further information about your course and give you a chance to find out about what to expect at the start of your course.
We are known for being a friendly and supportive department. We are located in the heart of London and wherever you come from, we want to ensure that you feel welcome as a new student at the University. You will find the information about your Orientation Week programme and preliminary reading lists for your course posted on our enrolment and orientation pages.
Our programme offers you opportunities to mature academically. It supports your professional development, and it seeks to inspire you to achieve.
We strongly encourage you to participate in our academic community by attending research seminars, workshops, and conferences offered in the Department or in the vicinity in London.
You will be taught by academics who are highly qualified and experienced lecturers who use multi-media materials to facilitate your learning and bring it to life for you.
We encourage you to think seriously about your professional development at an early stage of your studies at the University of Westminster.To make the most of your time at WBS you should learn to organise your time, your notes, and your study habits in order to effectively progress through your classes. Fortunately, there is lots of support available to you.
We also provide a number of internships in the UK and abroad for you to apply for advertised on our Career Development Centre website.
In looking back at your time at the University of Westminster we hope that your involvement extends far beyond attending lectures and seminars, writing coursework pieces and sitting your exams. We hope that you actively contribute to our academic community, as well as to the university through extra curricular) activities, and develop skills for professional life in our department.
Throughout your studies here, your School Registry Office will help you deal with all administrative aspects of your course, including those relating to enrolment and module registration; coursework and exams; letter requests (e.g. for opening bank accounts, Council Tax etc.); University procedures and regulations; changing courses, withdrawing, or suspending your studies. You can find more information about all of the above, as well as guidance and downloadable forms on our webpages for current students.
The website also provides links to your Blackboard page which contains faculty-specific information you might need, as well as contact details and Registry counter opening hours in the section ‘My Faculty Registry (WBS)’.
We look forward to welcoming you to Westminster Business School during orientation week, where there will be opportunities for you to ask any question you may have to students and staff alike.
We hope you enjoy your time at Westminster and best wishes with your studies.
