My time at UEL has been incredibly amazing. The people I have met and the experience I have gained - I cannot forget the lessons this place has thought me. I always refer to our main campus as a mini world, because of immense amount of facilities it provides on campus. Docklands campus has a gym, Starbucks, eateries, a 24 hour library and a DLR station right outside campus. UEL will always have a special place in my heart even after I graduate; for the education and the experience!
