“Having a degree from Westminster was a significant advantage and strengthened my position during my job interview. My new boss appreciated my knowledge of English, analytical skills, ambition, and academic achievements. The culture of Westminster and its high standards shaped my tenacity and developed a positive ‘can-do’ attitude to any task. In my case it made a critical difference.”
