Our logo

The UEL logo

Our logo reflects the importance of the University's origins but also represents an institution that is bold, confident and future-facing. It comes directly from the University coat of arms and has been designed to capture the pure essence of all that we are.

The unique phoenix iconography combined with the Olympic torch hints to our heritage and location, whereas the cogs represent the instrumental part we play in the community and our connection to industry.  Our logo honours our connection with our history, whilst reaching forward to the future. 

Our location

London is moving east, and with campuses in Stratford and the historic Royal Albert Dock, we are at the heart of this industrial and creative shift which makes up a powerful global gateway. 

Our Docklands campus and accommodation is set in a beautiful, dynamic location, right next to the river, with the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) on its doorstep (and free UEL buses running to Stratford). Our students live in stunning surroundings, and are never far from the action and work experience opportunities of central London.

The UEL Docklands campus

The location of the Docklands campus is simply amazing. During my very first day in university, it was early morning, I was quite nervous, but when I saw the sunrise and the reflection of the sun in the river, that made me stop, think and calm down.

The careers-led university

We work with global organisations to make our courses entrepreneurial, creative and inspirational. Wherever our students want to work - in business, technology, teaching, arts, media, science, sport or the public sector - they will have the skills necessary to adapt to the world of tomorrow, and to be the leaders and pioneers of today.

More and more, employers are seeking workers who possess skills such as emotional intelligence and creativity, the ability to think critically and undertake complex problem solving. That's why we've put these skills at the heart of every one of our degrees, counting towards students' final qualification. As evidence of these achievements we give our students a career passport that'll open doors.

We call this our Professional Fitness & Mental Wealth programme.
