As an international student at WIUT, my experience was indeed very productive. Not only were we provided with theoretical insights in the form of lectures, but also real life case examples and the application of those theories in tutorials. WIUT encompasses a wide ranging student experience that enables you to grow both professionally and socially. The WIUT MUN, for instance, is one of the finest in Central Asia and signifies diversity and inclusion. These are values that WIUT strives for and instills in its students, thus the WIUT experience is one that will transform you into a viable professional, equipped with the skills to succeed in the corporate world.

Saying that Westminster has changed my life would be an understatement. I studied Business Administration which encompassed all spheres of business like marketing, finance, HR, etc. Consequently, it made me comfortable in all areas that business can be part of i.e. versatile. University helped me to develop my leadership skills, interpersonal skills, research, creativity and discipline. My approach towards work has always been different from other employees, they always highlight my passion, enthusiasm and work ethics towards the job I'm doing. It’s a pleasure to hear someone say “The company you’re working for has become so much better after you. I can see the changes”. The thing that WIUT embraced in me is differentiation.
