“The University of East London has placed increasing the strength and diversity of the talent pipeline for a 4.0 economy at the centre of our priorities. As we progress through and beyond the 4th industrial revolution, it is critically important that we prepare the next generation to access and engage with the evolving opportunities arising globally. Education is, and should be, borderless. Advancing together will create a fairer, more peaceful and prosperous world. That is why I am delighted to announce the commencement of a range of exciting, new, international educational partnerships aimed at advancing society and the economy to flourish and thrive. This global engagement aligns with our careers-1st mission to prepare our students for the jobs of the future, and through global enterprise and innovation drive forward this future inclusively and sustainably.

The University of East London is delighted to launch its new partnership with Unicaf.  We believe that UEL and Unicaf share many important values around supporting our students to develop the skills, emotional intelligence and creativity to thrive in a constantly changing world.  Our partnership with Unicaf will make UEL’s career-focused courses accessible to many students throughout the world through Unicaf’s bespoke online platform, thereby supporting their aspirations.  We are tremendously excited by this partnership and we look forward to developing this partnership further over the coming years and months.”


An explanation of the Delivery Model

Students working online will experience the same learning material as the University of East London’s students studying on-campus. They will also have the opportunity to engage with international students and faculty.  The state-of-the-art digital platform delivers the entire teaching and learning experience online, from application to graduation.  There are many opportunities to work collaboratively with other online students, and practice new skills and knowledge prior to assessments.  Unicaf student support staff will be on hand to offer support and guidance throughout the learner's journey and will revert to the University of East London specialist teams, if required.

About the UEL / Unicaf partnership

The University of East London has partnered with Unicaf to provide online Master’s programmes for UK-based and overseas students. This collaborative partnership allows students to engage in Higher Education from the comfort and safety of their homes, working entirely online using Unicaf’s state-of-the-art digital platform and supported by international teaching staff.   

A word on Student Recruitment

Under the terms of the partnership between the University of East London and Unicaf, UK-based students will benefit from significant savings in the cost for obtaining a Master's qualification owing to the programmes being delivered entirely online.  Africa-based students uniquely benefit from potential scholarships to offset the proportionally high cost of Higher Education in sub-Saharan Africa; home of 27 of the world's 28 poorest countries (The World Bank, 2018).
