A large university with a strong communications program

As one of the biggest universities in the UK, with a high volume of international students, the University of Westminster offers a large variety of classes and departments to visiting students, including creative writing, business, criminology, marketing and English. The highly recognized school of Media, Arts, and Design offers state of the art equipment and technologies for the study of media, communications, art and design, photography, fashion, film, music, and journalism. Westminster’s course flexibility with visiting students means that it may be a good program option if you want to explore different subject areas.

I think that study abroad is one of the absolute best experiences you can have. I would definitely recommend it to other students who want to spend time in a new and exciting place where they can change for the better and make unforgettable memories. ”
