Where futures are shaped

Whatever course you're studying, we'll help you gain the employment skills you need to achieve your career ambitions. We've made sure that every course at UEL builds in employability skills and work experience opportunities. 

Our location in on of Europe's largest regeneration areas gives our students access to fantastic internships and placements. From heavy industry to high-tech, from health and social care to the arts, there are so many opportunities right on our doorstep and we have extensive links to local employers. 

For example, our fashion students have designed uniforms for the NHS, our architecture students have worked on real design briefs and our sports therapy students have treated marathon runners in London and Berlin and footballers at West Ham and Mill wall. 

We have a dedicated Careers and Employability team who work closely with employers to provide the most up-to-date information about the kind of skills and experience they're looking for and continue to support student to shape their futures after graduating.

Having a dream is not enough. I needed to be shown how to go about it. During my time at UEL, I set up the Children in Congo Foundation, which provides free primary education to children.
