Engage is the University portal for services that will link you to full-time, part-time, internships and volunteering opportunities during your studies. It is also a place for you to track your personal development, with support and advice from the University Careers team to help with your student journey and the next steps after you graduate.
The HEAR is a formal degree transcript that lists a full record of your university achievements, both academic and extra-curricular learning and experience. All students will all automatically have a HEAR, but it’s up to you to add as many experiences and achievements, so why not join a student group and become a committee member?
This is an employability achievement award supporting your career development and formally recognising the extra-curricular activities you complete during your time at Westminster. It is designed to help you gain experience and develop key skills that employers want you to have. Find out more about yourself, explore different options, gain more experience and get job-ready by completing the Award.
You can sign up at any time but register as early as possible through Engage to gain as many points as possible!
UWSU 20 is a selection of our best student leaders that have shown excellence and had a great impact during their time with UWSU. They can be part of sports clubs, societies or part time officers, but what unites them is their shared interest in improving the lives of UoW students, positive attitude and hard work.
The University of Westminster Mentoring scheme connects students with professionals for a mentoring partnership. As a facilitator of personal and professional growth, our mentors can help you to succeed by enhancing your employability through confidence building, networking and developing key employability skills. With the help of a mentor as a role model, you can build a solid foundation of skills to launch a variety of successful careers.
Once you have completed the Mentoring scheme you will be awarded with a certificate.
Starting university can be a daunting time; a new place to live, a new city to learn, a new place to study and new friends to make. We want to make that transition for you much smoother and every new student to feel at ease in those first few weeks - which is why every new student at Westminster will be assigned a FAN to support them.
FANS are students who know everything there is to know about Westminster and what it means and takes to be a student. During the first two weeks of University life they will support and guide new students to make sure they settle into their new environments with ease.
Each year, hundreds of Westminster students volunteer to support charitable causes that matter to them. If you’re interested in volunteering in some way, the Student Volunteering Service is here to help you.
Volunteering is as diverse as the millions of people who do it. Find out about the different types of volunteering. So whatever your background or interests, there’s bound to be something that’s a great fit. Westminster volunteers include new students, experienced postgraduates and everything in between. Read their stories on our volunteering stories page.
If you are new to the service register your interest or check out the opportunities bank to explore what we have on offer.
