University of East London
Founded in the year 1898, the University of East London is a career-focused university that has been working towards supporting its students to develop their emotional intelligence and the creative skills that will enable them to thrive in a constantly evolving world. Previously known as the Polytechnic of East London, this university achieved its university status in 1992. To ensure that the students benefit from courses that are entrepreneurial, creative and inspirational, the university has partnered with several global organizations from across the globe. One of their primary goals is to lead the field of education as a career-centric university in the UK. As part of this goal, they have been working towards developing and implementing a new 10-year strategy called Vision 2028. This initiative will focus on transforming the curriculum, pedagogy, research impact and partnerships to bring a positive change within the field of education.

The Stratford campus is well-equipped with learning centres, upgraded labs and computing services and even a new library. In addition to these, there are several modern facilities including performance spaces and studios, Harvard lecture theatre and even a 300-seat specialized tiered lecture theatre.
