Welcome to the Huawen Institute, a place where innovation, globalisation and learning come together. At Huawen Institute our focus is on developing people to lead and manage change in an international environment and contribute to the development of the communities where they work and live.

The Institute is located in the heart of central London close to the British library and one of the world's leading universities, University College London. The building has historic period features throughout and is a grade II listed building but with a modern professional learning environment.

We are a dynamic, vibrant and youthful institution committed to supporting and developing our students and staff. We understand the particular challenges and opportunities that international students studying in the UK face and we provide a range of services to support you in making this transition.
