Experienced faculty and diverse courses at University of West London: A place of quality education.
Tips: The culture here is quite different but friendly for international students. I did not get any scholarships. I am quite satisfied with my course and the university. This country is great for studying this course as it provides practical exposure to real-world to study this course.
Likes (Safety): Uwl has a student support team where you can freely tell your queries even in case of safety. They are always ready to help. The city is great but I have faced a few difficulties. First is the mailing service in my student accommodation. I did not receive my cards on time. Later must be aware of the deposit and make it clear enough to the landlord before selecting a room from an off-campus location. Overall, this place is great for developing your skills.
Dislikes (Part time work): It is difficult to find part time job this year related to your field of study. It is a bit difficult to manage your part-time and classes in the beginning. The payout is raised from this year and is good. It completely depends on the student to manage expenses.

Be you and all follows. Good university to start your abroad journey.
Tips: The course selection should be wise otherwise you cannot change once you pick up a course. Also, be aware of future jobs cause the rules state that we have to work in the same field as our course. Nothing apart from these. When you come here you will figure it out.
Likes (Public transportation): Transportation is really good apart from the regular strikes. Otherwise, it is better to take student accommodation so that the travel and expenses part is sorted. Either way, it is the same expense. So it didn’t really matter to me. I had opted for a student dorm.
Dislikes (Part time work): I haven't found a part-time yet. Help is given by the university as their career fairs are very specific to future jobs here. Also the part-time jobs are not relevant to your previous experience. We have to work on random things and struggle for a full time. Just like I am doing it
