About Westminster's Summer Program


Since its inception as the Royal Polytechnic Institute in 1838, Westminster has always been an international institution, receiving students from all over the world. A primary attraction has been its historical role as a leader in innovation, having been the first British institution to relay a transatlantic telegraph, demonstrate a moving picture and teach photography. Of equal attraction is its location in the midst of central London. The main campus is on Regent Street, from where one will be able to browse the elegant shops on Bond Street, be tempted by the world cuisine in Soho, take in a theatre performance in Leicester Square or view the masterpieces in the National Gallery at Trafalgar Square.
