Westford University College is a pioneer in fostering continuous growth of fulfilling education for young graduates and executive professionals.

Westford offers unique bachelor's programmes in partnership with leading UK universities such as Liverpool John Moores University(LJMU), Canterbury Christ Church University (CCCU), University of Gloucestershire, and Abertay University of the United Kingdom.

All courses offered through these partnerships are one-of-a-kind, such as the BSc (Hons) in Business with Finance, Digital Marketing, and International Business and Business Management offered in collaboration with LJMU and CCCU, are divided into two parts, allowing students to receive a Higher National Diploma in Business from the well-known Pearson, UK, before completing their BSc (Hons) Top-up degree. Learners get the opportunity to collaborate alongside experienced academics on cutting-edge research projects, earning significant experience and contributing to the progress of knowledge in their field.
