At UEL we are working on the some of
the big issues that will define our future – from sustainable architecture and
ethical AI, to health inequality and breaking down barriers in the creative
industries – and our students are more critically engaged and socially conscious
than ever before.
Now is the time to harness that passion, creativity, compassion and ambition to make change a reality – for ourselves, for our communities and for the world at large.
The world needs change. #BeTheNext to join the University of East London in 2021 and together we can #BeTheChange.

We work with global organisations to make our courses
entrepreneurial, creative and inspirational. Wherever our students want to work
– in business, technology, teaching, arts, media, science, sport or the public
sector – they will have the skills necessary to adapt to the world of tomorrow,
and to be the leaders and pioneers of today.
More and more, employers are seeking workers who possess skills such as emotional intelligence and creativity, the ability to think critically and undertake complex problem solving. That’s why we’ve put these skills at the heart of every one of our degrees, counting towards students’ final qualification. As evidence of these achievements we give our students a career passport that’ll open doors.
We are well-connected with employers in the health and business industries. Our graduates run numerous services within local authorities, charities and NHS trusts.
We’ll help you find placements within the NHS, private organisations and the third sector. Past students have gained experience alongside professionals at; NGS NHS Trusts across the North Thames region, MIND, Terrence Higgins Trust, Centrepoint, Women’s Aid, National Autistic Society, and Occupational Psychology consultancies including SHL, OPM Consulting, MDV and A&DC.
