Find out just why UEL is an extraordinary university in the most vibrant part of the capital.
With our £450 million facilities, world-class teaching and research, and great social life, it's no wonder we've got some of the highest student satisfaction ratings around.
What's more, our courses are firmly rooted in the real world - you can work on community projects in London and abroad as part of your studies.
I don’t think I’ve ever been made to feel more welcome. Being surrounded by people who are friendly, social, and share your interests has to be one of the best things I can say about my university experience.Ben Nizan , BA (Hons) Computer Games Design
Why study at UEL?
If you come to UEL, you get so much more than a bachelor’s degree. You’ll be studying in the fast-growing, artistic and cultural hotbed of east London – the most vibrant part of London; one of the world’s most exciting global cities.
You’ll make friends for life, from all over the world (we have over 120 nationalities among our students). And you’ll be ‘learning by doing’ – going out into the community as part of your studies. Something no other London university does so well.
Why do a postgraduate course at UEL?
UEL offers you the chance to invest in your future with a postgraduate course. Our Masters and Prof Doc courses such as PGCEs have a global reputation, and our research community offers students in-depth support from academic tutors, plus the chance to contribute to groundbreaking research.
We’ve invested over £170 million in new facilities and buildings, and regularly attract big research grants, such as the €3 million European Union ASPIRE cybersecurity project.
We invest in you too. UEL has a full range of postgraduate bursaries and scholarships – including scholarships worth 50 per cent off course fees.
International study at UEL
Studying at UEL puts you right at the heart of London – one of the world’s most dynamic capital cities. And you’ll be based in multicultural east London; just 20 minutes from central London.
Once here, you’ll be part of a global network. We have students from over 120 countries at UEL, and a thriving worldwide alumni network.
Our International Student Advice team can help you on every stage of the application process – including visa requirements – and advise on our generous range of grants and bursaries for international students.
