The University of East London (UEL) dates back to 1898 and was founded as a university in 1992. It currently has 13,500 students from 135 countries enrolled, and the campuses at Docklands and Stratford are located in East London, close to the major financial centre of Canary Wharf and the region chosen to host the 2012 Olympics.
London is moving east, and with campuses in Stratford and the historic Royal Albert Dock, they are at the heart of this industrial and creative shift which makes up a powerful global gateway. The 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). Therefore, students are never far from the action and work experience opportunities of central London.
