As the London Associate Campus of Heriot‑Watt University and an independent higher education institution West London College offers a unique study opportunity.

Students can earn a degree from one of the finest universities in Scotland whilst enjoying the benefits of the most exciting campus location in England.

The campus offers a range of Bachelor's and Master's degree programmes in business and fashion, subjects for which London, as an international hub for both, is the perfect learning environment.
