University of East London

The University of East London (UEL) was founded in 1898, located in the East London boroughs of Newham with campuses in Docklands and Stratford. It runs and prides its seven schools including Architecture, Computing and Engineering, Arts and Digital Industries, the School of Education and the Communities, Health, Sport and Bioscience, Psychology, Royal Docks School of Business and Law and a Graduate School.

The University of East London (UEL) has been pioneering futures since 1898: from the 2nd Industrial Revolution through to where we are now, the 4th. The University of East London is a careers-first university driven by a commitment to ensure its graduates are first choice for employers. Their vision is to advance knowledge and drive innovation for positive change for people and the planet

Over the 2018-19 academic year the University of East London has been developing and starting to implement a new 10-year strategy, Vision 2028, to transform their curriculum, pedagogy, research impact and partnerships to make a positive difference to student, graduate and community success. UEL’s ambitious but achievable goal is to become the leading careers-focused, enterprising university in the UK, one which both prepares our students for the jobs of the future and provides the innovation to drive that future sustainably and inclusively.

  • The University of East London is at the heart of East London’s regeneration working with local industries, connecting with businesses and introducing students to future employers.

    Global businesses, creative industries and disruptive start-ups base themselves in the East of the capital. The City Airport across the water from the Docklands Campus and Stratford is continuing to grow into a world-leading hub of innovation, creativity and education. Now even the Mayor of London is moving East.
