Welcome to the University of East London.

You’re about to join a careers-led university that is changing the way we teach and preparing you for the jobs of the future in pioneering industries that are only just emerging.

You’re about to become part of a vibrant student community which is as diverse, inclusive, passionate, creative and committed as you’ll find anywhere. You’ll develop skills beyond your subject through our emerging employer partnerships; with our career passport that gets you connected with industry; and through our unique mental wealth programme that is embedded into your degree to equip you for the jobs of the future.

You’ll graduate among alumni who have built businesses, fought for change, smashed glass ceilings, saved lives and led by example. You’re about to #BeTheNext.

These pages give you an overview of how you can prepare for the 2020/21 academic year at the University of East London. Once you have accepted your offer, you can navigate through the pages using the buttons below to read our advice and tips on how to prepare. There is additional advice for international students.

We also have a free app which can be downloaded from the App Store or the Google Play Store. Search and download ‘Welcome to UEL’ - that’s where you’ll find everything you need to know right at your fingertips.

In light of the global Covid-19 pandemic, your safety and wellbeing is our top priority. We have introduced new measures at our campuses which go above and beyond UK government guidelines. Our campuses are Covid-secure, with protocols to ensure social distancing and to reduce congestion.

This year, we have introduced our ground-breaking Dual Delivery model which means you will have the opportunity to learn both on-campus and on-line, moving seamlessly between the two modes, and with the ability to be part of the same connected learning cohort. Our aim is to provide you with the full university experience.

We understand these are unprecedented times. The University has a wealth of resources to help our students and staff. Please visit #UELConnected, our wellbeing portal, to see what you can access.

COVID-19

As a student of our institution, your safety and wellbeing is our top priority.

We have many resources to help you mentally, physically and emotionally during your time here.

All our campuses are Covid-secure to ensure that you can enjoy the full University experience while maintaining social distancing, governed by our comprehensive Covid-secure Campus Guidelines to which all our community is committed.

Dual Delivery

These are unprecedented times, but they have galvanised us to think anew about how we can deliver a high quality, careers-first education that draws on the combined potential of classroom and remote learning. You'll find we've invested and transformed the way we do things to give you a flying start, leading the way education should be delivered.

New for the Autumn term is our ground-breaking Dual Delivery model which means you will have the opportunity to learn both on-campus and on-line, moving between the two modes, with the ability to be part of the same connected learning cohort. We've turned our classrooms on their heads to provide increased careers-first learning, increased flexibility and increased personal support.

Track My Future

New to the 2020 autumn term, we are launching Track My Future, a personalised, online platform that will help you make the most of your time at the University of East London. Track My Future lets you monitor your studies, access our services and support, find a part-time job, build your personal brand, get your career off to a flying start and so much more.

Track My Future is being introduced because students told us they wanted a one-stop shop for all your University needs to provide you with the best experience possible both online and on campus. We believe that this will deliver a unique and valuable service, supporting your personal learner journey, that is genuinely sector-leading.

University of East London students can access Track My Future here.
