The University of Westminster is one of the UK's leading centres for the study of Architecture and the Built Environment, inspiring more than 2,000 students at its teaching base at Marylebone, in central London.
The Faculty aims to explore the core subject areas that address the future shape of our cities and all courses encourage dynamic thinking from students.
The research quality was recognised in the recent Research Assessment Exercise. Twenty per cent of the research in Architecture and the Built Environment was judged as ‘world-leading’ with 45 per cent judged as ‘internationally excellent’.
A range of high-level consultancy activities complements this research, and brings the Faculty’s knowledge directly to bear in the outside world.
