Preparing for UEL

Congratulations! You have accepted your offer to study at the University of East London, and hopefully you have arranged your visa. But before you arrive in the UK there are a few things you need to do prepare. We will help you do just that.

Arriving in the UK

You can make your journey to the UK as smooth as possible by making a checklist of everything you need before your journey.

MSc Civil Engineering

I met Mr Tolani Jaiyeola from UEL at a British Council festival in Abuja in Nigeria. He was very responsive to my queries, and helped me sort out a problem with my fees payment. The international team also helped me prepare for my visa interview, and made sure I had the right documents ready.

Clothes, possessions and electronic items

You do not need to bring a lot of clothing or possessions with you to London – but a few essentials are always useful for the first few days.
