The University of East London has more than 22,000 students, comprised of about 120 nationalities. UEL is one of the UK's most inclusive schools.
We're a global learning community, proud of our diversity, with a worldwide alumni network of over 37,000 members.
This diversity of background, cultures and life experience enriches student life not just in the classrooms and seminars, but also on campus.
UEL is well known as a leading centre of teaching and research in creative and cultural fields. Our school of Humanities and Social Sciences produces research of a global importance according to the latest UK governmental Research Assessment Exercise.
London is a great place to live, work and study. It is a truly global city - often described as the most multicultural city in the world. It is the place where international business collides with a rich vein of creative and cultural expression, and where the ultra-modern meets the deeply historical.
Nowhere in the UK is this blend of old and new, tradition and innovation, more striking than in East London and the Thames Gateway: an area undergoing massive multi-million pound investment and regeneration. In fact it's the largest regeneration area in Europe.
At its heart, stands UEL. Stratford, our historic home, is in the global spotlight as never before in the run up to the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, which will take place right next to our Stratford campus.
Docklands, the site of our second, ultra-modern campus is also home the historic Royal Docks, O2 arena, Canary Wharf and many other symbols of modern, multicultural London.
We have spent around GBP150 million in recent years on facilities for students, making UEL one of the most exciting universities in England.
