Supporting your learning

Tariyq Belcheva (Bulgaria)

BA (Hons) International Tourism Management

There are so many international students at UEL and the environment and the atmosphere here are great. The thing that makes UEL stand out is the amount of support you get. I’ve always been really happy with the support from the academic staff, from the helpdesks, from reception, everything.

Other ways we support you

Sarah Bussuruddy (Mauritius)

BA (Hons) Tourism and Hospitality Management

The library is open 24/7, you get student discounts in the campus shops and at Costa and you get lots of support from your supervisors. You’re having much more than the basics. You can always go and speak to the careers advisers, and all the support you need is in the same place, on campus, so you don’t have to go searching for it. It makes everything much less stressful.
