Welcome to the Financial Services homepage

The successful implementation of UEL’s challenging plans is necessary to secure our future.

Financial Services plays a key role in this. We help to manage our complex £110 million capital development programme for our Stratford and Docklands campuses. We help develop UEL’s plans and provide information on how well we are doing to our governors, directors and heads of school.

We ensure the significant level of funding we receive from the public is managed to the highest standards and that we can account for our activities to Parliament.

We enrol our students at the beginning of their career with us and issue them with their award certificates at the end.

We are committed to operating with the best modern practices ourselves and helping identify appropriate opportunities for our colleagues elsewhere in UEL. We lead in the development of our electronic service for students – UEL Direct.
