PRIVATE INDEPENDENT COLLEGE

YOUR GATEWAY TO WORLD-CLASS EDUCATION

At Westminster College Bangkok, we are constantly looking to improve our service to our students through:

INNOVATION

We offer unique pathways leading directly to guaranteed places at the best universities in the world, including UK, US, Australia and International university destinations. These pathways are specifically designed to equip you with the knowledge and skills that you require to study successfully at university level. 

HIGH-QUALITY TUITION

We look carefully at our classes and teaching styles, always striving for quality. We believe we can always do better, and through a combination of modern teaching methods and quality control, we do.

BUILDING
ASPIRATION

We work hard to create a collegiate and professional atmosphere where students can excel both academically and beyond. The integration of invited professional speakers, and the many workshops, student clubs, and volunteer activities contribute to our students acquiring essential skills, knowledge, values, and aspirations to become lifelong learners and successful contributors to society, especially in this digital era.

OUR HIGH TEACHING STANDARDS

We ensure our teachers meet both our high standards, and those set by our pathway providers, Kings Education and University New South Wales College. We maintain these standards not only through critically observing classes regularly, but also by putting in place a system of professional teacher training and development, which means that our teachers can always perform at their best.

All aspects of our college and services are managed by a team of experienced education professionals. Our senior management and governance team constantly monitor and review our operations to ensure that all aspects of our academic and welfare provision meet or exceed both local and international standards and requirements. This includes close liaison with colleagues at Kings Education to benchmark all that we do in line with standards, requirements and expectations of international schools and colleges in the UK and USA

OUR PRE-UNIVERSITY PATHWAYS

Our pre-university pathways are specially tailored routes to university study designed by experts in this academic field, that is, the University of New South Wales & Kings Education. These pathways can offer options that may be a better fit for some students than traditional routes to a university degree.

Why Choose a Pre-university Pathway?

Academic English support

Pre-university pathways are tailor made for university entry for international students in terms of Academic English support. These pathways all have an integral element of improving traditional language skills; reading, writing, listening and speaking, but also developing academic study skills such as note-making, constructing essays from sources, and taking part in academic seminar discussions. Having the correct Academic English and study skills will ensure that when students arrive at university they are equipped to really ‘hit the ground running’ and excel.

The nature of assessments

Another way in which pre-university pathways are tailor-made for international students is the nature of assessments. Traditional single end-of-year exams are incredibly stressful as a student’s academic career is dependent on performing well on a particular day. In contrast, pre-university pathways spread assessment over end-of-term testing in a variety of formats, thus avoiding the all too familiar stressful 'cliff-edge' situation that students have traditionally had to go through, and very importantly, replicating the nature of assessments that students will encounter at university.

ADVANTAGES OF SHORTER PATHWAYS

It’s clear that pre-university pathways better prepare students over a shorter period due to the makeup of the course. The time saved by following a pre-university pathway will be better spent later in university following the increasingly popular trend of taking a placement year while at university. A great many UK universities offer work placement years. During this year, students have an opportunity to gain hands-on experience in their course sector by working for a company or organisation. A work placement year gives students greater industry knowledge, helps them connect with industry professionals, boosts their CV with real work experience, and gives them greater insight into possible career paths. Alternatively, a student might be incredibly keen to get their teeth into the world of work, and finishing your degree a year earlier affords this opportunity.

A guaranteed offer at university

Last but certainly not least, is the guaranteed offer of a place that universities offer before students start their pathway. This is incredibly motivating for students who have a specific goal of a dream destination to work towards. Having an offer in hand is also very reassuring for students as they can feel safe in the knowledge that they have taken a huge first step towards university.
