If you are an overseas student who pays fees and has been offered a full-time undergraduate or postgraduate degree at the University of West London, you are eligible to apply for the University of West London Ambassador Scholarship. As an International Ambassador, you will collaborate with other international students on the project and be asked to promote the University of West London to prospective international students. This may involve assisting at open days, participating in marketing department interviews, videos, and photo shoots, or interacting with visiting international students.
A public research university with campuses in Reading, Berkshire, Ealing, and Brentford in Greater London, the University of West London is located in the United Kingdom. The Lady Byron School, which eventually evolved into Ealing College of Higher Education, served as the foundation for the institution and its history can be traced back to 1860. The West London Polytechnic, as it was then known, changed its name to a university in 1992, similar to Thames Valley University. It was given its current name after 18 years and numerous mergers, acquisitions, and campus relocation.
The London Geller College of Hospitality and Tourism, the School of Computing and Engineering, the London College of Music, the College of Nursing, Midwifery, and Healthcare, the School of Law, the School of Human and Social Sciences, the School of Biomedical Sciences, and the London School of Film, Media, and Design are the nine schools that make up the University of West London.
The Lady Byron School was founded in 1860 on the grounds of what is now the University of West London’s Ealing campus, beginning the university’s existence. As time went on, the institution changed its name to Ealing College of Higher Education, which Lady Byron founded in 1860.
The Slough campus opened as a selective secondary school on William Street in January 1912. It changed its name to Slough College of Further Education in the 1960s. It changed its name to Thames Valley College of Higher Education in the 1980s, however it was shut down in 2011. However, in 1991, the London College of Music, Queen Charlotte’s College of Health Care Studies, Ealing College of Higher Education, and Thames Valley College of Higher Education merged to form the Polytechnic of West London. Following a two-year transition, Thames Valley University was established as a polytechnic under the provisions of the Further and Higher Education Act of 1992. In 1994, the institution partnered with the AIDS section of the North West Thames Regional Authority, Riverside College of Nursing, and Northwick Park School of Nursing. It enrolled in Berkshire College of Nursing and Midwifery in 1995. Reading College and School of Arts and Design, which had been established in 1947 as Reading Technical College, joined the university in 2004. The locations of Reading College on Kings Road and Crescent Road were turned over to TVU.
The university made the decision in 2009 to do rid of its continuing education programs as well as its Kings Road location, which it had inherited from the Reading College and School of Arts and Design. It announced in May 2009 that it would close the Slough campus in 2010 as a result of the majority of the institution’s students—nursing students—moving to Reading. Other courses would also be transferred to a campus in Greater London of the institution. In July 2009, the university received the Queen’s Anniversary Prize for exceptional performance and quality in hospitality education. Then, in 2010, the responsibility for continuing education as well as the Kings Road location was given to a newly established Reading College. The university preserved its other Reading locations, including the Crescent Road site that was previously created with Reading College and School of Arts and Design, despite being some 40 miles west of London. The university announced its name change to the University of West London in August 2010, and the Privy Council later approved the move. The University of West London unveiled a new logo in April 2011.
The University of West London Ambassador Scholarship will provide up to GBP 5,000 toward first-year tuition for all successful applicants.
