14th in the World for Diversity!

Released on Friday, the league table celebrated the universities across the globe with the highest percentage of international students

With students from 165 countries, staff from across the world and a highly international alumni community, the University of Westminster embraces global engagement in all its forms.

We have a rich mix of international partnerships in over 20 countries worldwide, and place particular emphasis on providing international opportunities for our students. Westminster Working Cultures is one of the programmes, reflecting the University’s international outlook by giving students the chance to travel abroad and experience the professional environment and culture in cities across the globe, including Hong Kong, Mumbai and Washington D.C.

Our research addresses global themes and is sustained by international collaborations. Founded in collaboration with the University of Westminster and the Foundation of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan in 2002, Westminster International University in Tashkent (WIUT) is the first international university in Uzbekistan. WIUT represents a distinctive model of UK Transnational Education (TNE) and an example of a unique and sustainable British-Uzbek partnership and has now established itself as a prominent internationally validated University in Central Asia.

Sixteen universities from London feature in the top 200 of the Times Higher Education International Student Table, making it one of the most represented cities in the ranking. The UK as a whole was the most represented country with 72 universities in the top 200.

Westminster is also listed as the most internationally diverse university in the UK, US, Australia and New Zealand in the Hotcourses Diversity Index (HDI). The Hotcourses Diversity Index allows you to compare levels of international diversity on the campuses of universities in the UK, USA, Australia and New Zealand. The data for the index is sourced from official government sources. Hotcourses says that many students see access to a multicultural community as a vital part of studying abroad.
