“I am a proud student of University of West London - we have very good professors, very nice lecture rooms… I recommend the University of West London to everyone.”
I have been in employment for 25 years in supply chain and logistics and I was at that stage in my life when
I realized that I needed to get
back to school. I was researching various schools that I could attend part-time, because I have full time occupation. I did some research and contacted some of my friends in UK to get more details, and the feedback I got was very positive. I realized that it was a solid university in the UK with a history and with a lot of accolades. I am in the company of very senior seasoned professionals and the professors are very cooperative and supportive with lots of experience. I thoroughly enjoy my course and am even thinking I might pursue a doctorate or even attend the campus in the UK. I am glad I took the decision at this stage in my life and I feel lot of value.” Read More
