The University of West London (UWL) has climbed an impressive 23 places to become one of the top 40 universities in the UK according to the influential Guardian University Guide 2021.

UWL is now ranked 34th in the UK – our highest position of any league table ever! We were also the top university in England for teaching satisfaction and the ranking reaffirms our position as the top modern university in London. 

In addition, UWL has been named University of the Year for Student Experience in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2021. The editor of the Guide has described UWL as “regularly among the top-performing universities’ and that we have ‘proved it is possible for a London-based institution to achieve outstanding levels of student satisfaction beyond other universities”.  

Over the last few years more than £150 million has been invested in our campus to create an inspiring social and learning environment for students. As well as modern social spaces and a new library, UWL is ‘jam-packed’ with specialist facilities.
