University of East London (UEL)

Home / University of East London


The University of East London has been pioneering futures since 1898: from the 2nd Industrial Revolution through to where we are now, the 4th. We are a careers-led university, dedicated to supporting our students to develop the skills, emotional intelligence and creativity needed to thrive in a constantly changing world.

London is moving east, and with campuses in Stratford and the historic Royal Albert Dock, we are at the heart of this industrial and creative shift which makes up a powerful global gateway. Our Docklands campus and accommodation is set in a beautiful, dynamic location, right next to the river, with the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) on its doorstep (and free UEL buses running to Stratford). Our students live in stunning surroundings, and are never far from the action and work experience opportunities of central London.
