University of West London

Founded as the Lady Byron School in 1860, what is now the University of West London was originally formed from the merger of Ealing College of Higher Education, Thames Valley College of Higher Education, the London College of Music, and Queen Charlotte’s College of Health Care Studies.

In April 2011 we formally changed our name to the University of West London, following approval from the Privy Council. The new name reflects a re-focusing of the University’s activities on our Ealing and Brentford sites. In May 2011, Laurence Geller was appointed Chancellor of the University. Laurence is an alumnus of the University and a leading figure in hospitality and tourism.

Throughout our history, we have played a significant role in London’s educational, cultural and economic life – and beyond of the UK’s most successful business regions. As such, we’ve forged close links with many locally-based multinational companies including Apple, British Airways, Hewlett-Packard and Microsoft.
