The University of West London is pleased to announce that it has officially joined University Alliance (UA), the member organisation for professional and technical universities in the United Kingdom.

University Alliance represents the UK’s leading professional and technical universities working at the heart of their communities that partner with industry and the professions to deliver the workforce of today and tomorrow through practical, skills-based learning and applied research.

UWL Vice-Chancellor and President, Professor Peter John CBE said:

In a period of strong growth and development for UWL, we are excited to be joining University Alliance. Our mission is closely aligned with that of the Alliance – we have a long history of working with industry in developing courses to support employer needs and provide life-changing career opportunities for our students. Our graduates are among the most employable and enterprising in the country. The University has ambitious plans for the future, and we are confident that through this new partnership with UA and connecting with universities with shared values and common goals, we can work together as a force for greater good, delivering impact and economic benefits both regionally and nationally.”

Vanessa Wilson, CEO of University Alliance said:

The University of West London is an exciting addition to University Alliance. With high quality teaching, an excellent student experience and an ambitious research programme, UWL are a perfect fit for the Alliance.

With the UK facing growing inequality, slow growth and workforce shortages across the public and private sectors, Alliance universities’ expertise in working with industry to deliver practical skills and knowledge will become ever more essential.

As our numbers grow, we can have greater impact as a collective. Together, we will continue to find solutions that deliver growth in our communities and develop the skills and knowledge that will power the UK into the future. We look forward to working with UWL to achieve these aims.”

Currently the University of West London is the “University of the Year for Teaching Quality” and “University of the Year for Student Experience” in the prestigious The Times & Sunday Times Good University Guide 2023 and it is in the top 30 universities in the UK, ranking No.23 in the latest influential Guardian University Guide.

UWL is ranked in the top 100 universities in the UK for the overall quality of its research and almost 80% of its research is rated as world-leading (4*) or internationally excellent (3*) in the latest Government Research Excellence Framework (REF) assessment.
