What OUr Students say

Josh Atkins, USA - BSc (Hons) Marketing

“College can be a big investment, but it shouldn't break the bank. I wanted to get a degree that would give me more value and coming to East London did exactly that. Not only am I graduating with far less student debt than if I had stayed in California, but I can also afford to travel all over Europe on the cheap. It's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and I'm so glad I didn't let it pass me by!”

ABOUT US

I'm an East London alum, who recently graduated, complete with an exciting job lined up - to guide you guys with your college journey! Originally from Florida and California, I decided to make the leap to study across the pond. I fell in love with London! It's the most diverse and eclectic place I've ever lived. Although I miss home, taking myself out of my comfort zone gave me invaluable life skills, so much opportunity to see the world, and that edge that makes a fresh-grad super attractive to employers.
