Who we work with

The University of East London is a careers-led university, dedicated to supporting our students to develop the skills, emotional intelligence and creativity needed to thrive in a constantly changing world. To prepare students for the jobs of the future, we work with several partners across our outreach programmes to deliver impactful, relevant, timely and meaningful experiences of higher education.

We have core partnerships with local schools and colleges. We also work with parents, local authorities, professional and trade bodies, charities, social enterprises and other educational organisations to deliver impactful outreach to young people from a widening participation background.

The University of East London’s Information, Advice and Guidance team work with mature and return learners and can give you advice, information and guidance on pre-entry or non-traditional routes into education. – find out more and book an appointment with our team in Stratford.
