About us

Located in the heart of multicultural east London, our School of Social Sciences is well placed to lead the discussion on many of today’s hot topics. We're here to impact positively on the lives of the students, who in turn leave equipped with the skills, knowledge and passion to make a difference to society – locally and further afield.  Our students are change-makers who we are excited to help train and to challenge to be the best they can be as individuals and as members of communities and families.
