The University of East London

About The University of East London

Here at UEL, we pride ourselves in our world-class research, which makes us one of the top six modern universities for research in the country.

We are a vibrant university with a vision to bring transformational academic and enterprising opportunities to those in our region. We seek to do this through diversity, partnership and excellence in teaching and research.

We’ve been educating individuals since 1898 and we are now one of the most diverse universities in the UK, with more than 120 nationalities represented on our campus. We're a heavily sport-orientated university, but we're also all about women's entrepreneurship, research, and investing in people - and we've got the awards to prove it.

On the sports thing we're aiming to become the NUMBER ONE university in London for sport by 2015. As you'd expect, we've got excellent facilities for... sport. But we also have good facilities for loads of other things too. Plus we're very international so multiculturalism is part of our mandate..
