At Westminster, we combine inspiring teaching, London and global connections, interdisciplinary collaborations, close professional links and policy-focused research to transform individuals and wider society. We are a vibrant, sustainable and broad-based institution proud of our 200-year heritage and always looking forward. As a result of the positive action we have taken to strengthen our finances, we are thriving, and in a strong financial position to deliver our ambitious strategy ‘Being Westminster’ (link here). We successfully transitioned all of our teaching, learning and assessment online in March 2020 during the first lockdown and ran a significant programme of staff training and development over the summer to prepare our teams to design and deliver high quality online teaching over the 2020-21 academic year. We are now delivering a blend of online, face-to-face and hybrid teaching; ensuring an excellent student learning experience regardless of the current constraints.

You will be based at the University’s Marylebone site, opposite Baker Street Station, centrally located and immersed in London’s business community. We see London as very much part of our field of enquiry; it offers opportunities for staff and students to work closely with outside organisations in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors.
