About the institution

The University of East London (UEL) has two campuses: one in London Docklands and one in Stratford. The Docklands campus is home to the university’s purpose-built student village, and the Stratford campus is based near to the Olympic Park where many students are able to train. Beyond campus, in 2015 the university launched its Civic Engagement Fund which enables students to get involved in projects that will benefit society and give them real-world experience.
