University of West London成立時間: 1991
The University of West London (formerly Thames Valley University) received the highest increase in Ucas applications of any higher education institution this year. Employer engagement is at the heart of its new strategic direction. Student services offers excellent support and the Matrix-standard Careers and Employment Service help students secure full-time and part-time jobs. Programmes at the university include accounting and finance, enterprise and entrepreneurship, photography and media, psychology and tourism. There is a large student body, with many mature, part-time and ethnic minority students. The West London students' union runs events and campaigns throughout the year. New societies for this year include Women's Rugby Appreciation, Edify Magazine and Bollyaerobics.
The main campus in Ealing, West London, sits close to beautiful landscaped parks with restaurants, pubs and shopping on the doorstep and vibrant central London is only a short tube ride away. The university is committed to promoting environmental responsibility and has achieved Sapphire status from WestTrans Partnership and Carbon Trust Standard.
A new specialist teaching hub will be opening in Berkshire once the remainder of the Slough campus closes at the end of the 2010-11 academic year. The Reading campus at Crescent Road also closes at the end of 2011, with the remaining higher education programmes moving to the West London campus and the new hub close by in Berkshire. Some professional business qualifications will continue to be taught in Slough at The Centre on Farnham Road.
