College of Professional Services

About us

The college of Professional Services is home to the schools of Business and Law, and Cass School of Education and Communities. Both schools stand for teaching excellence, industry connections and real-world relevance. Many courses within the college hold professional accreditation where applicable.


Royal Docks School of Business and Law

At the school of Business and Law 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.

Cass School of Education and Communities

Cass School of Education and Communities is a highly successful provider of education, early childhood, special needs, social work and teacher training programmes. We also play a key role in the provision of education services and professional development throughout east London and beyond. We promote a strong research culture, building on our reputation for innovation within education and communities.

Our department of Social Work and Social Sciences sits within the school and enables students to explore key issues surrounding Brexit, globalisation, leadership, migration, individual wellbeing, and the future.

We offer collaborative partnerships and professional practice partnerships to benefit our students and external partners. Find out more about working with CASS.
