At the University of East London we welcome students from around the world, so when we say you will be learning in a global community, we mean it. No one understands the needs of international students more than us. UEL is a dynamic, diverse and expanding university at the heart of Europe’s largest regeneration area, close to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and Canary Wharf, the major financial hub of London. We welcome students from 135 countries, making us a truly international place to study.


As an institution we are ahead of the sector in many subject areas. UEL is acknowledged as 1st in London for its impact of Psychology research (above Oxford and Cambridge) and is ranked 2nd in London for Architecture and 3rd in London for Civil Engineering (Guardian University Guide league table 2018). Many of our courses are internationally accredited and if you study with us, you will benefit from professional mentorships with one on one guidance and develop your skills through internships in multinational or local east London companies.


We offer over 100 different courses to study from a Foundation, Undergraduate and Postgraduate degree through to Teacher Training and PhD. 87% of our graduates are in work after six months. It’s safe to say that we help you open doors to a rewarding global career.


At the University of East London, you will experience learning in a practical environment with our state of the art labs, studios, mooting rooms for law students, and Bloomberg Business Terminals, giving you the competitive edge. To help you with funding your studies, we offer over £3 million in international academic and sporting scholarships, and all core textbooks are provided free of charge.


We are 1st in London for international support and visa advice. So whether you’re an international student living in or outside the UK, our dedicated team is always on hand to guide you through each step of the way, and our International Student Advice team can provide free and confidential advice on immigration for UEL students, graduates and their families.


The other great thing about UEL is that you will be a short walk away from London City Airport, great if you need to fly back home, and close to some of the capital’s most famous venues too, such as the Excel Centre and O2 Arena.
