About us

We're experts at helping students achieve their ambitions.

We teach in a way that ensures you're ready for the world of work when you graduate, with the skills that employers need and the confidence to follow your own path. Our courses are rooted in practical experience - internships, case studies, workshops, guest lectures and business tours - but we also equip you with the tools to think strategically, creatively and critically.

We use the latest technology - from our impressive Bloomberg training suite to the £33m teaching facilities at University Square Stratford - to keep you up to date on the latest trends in business, law and enterprise.

Our school is inclusive and connected to the community around us. We're linked with global businesses in Canary Wharf and small startups nurtured in our very own Knowledge Dock. We're experts in international human rights and we offer free legal advice to local people at our Law Clinic.

Our staff and students come from a huge variety of backgrounds, with different needs, different skills and different goals - but all are committed to using their knowledge and expertise to build brighter futures for our graduates, and for our community.

My time studying Business Management (Marketing) at UEL allowed me to gain both theoretical and practical knowledge that has been extremely beneficial within the workplace. The network the course enables you to build is invaluable in the current employment market. The marketing industry is growing rapidly and UEL has prepared me to enter this industry confidently and successfully.
