University of East London (UEL) is a public university located in the London Borough of Newham, London, England, based at three campuses in Stratford and Docklands, following the opening of University Square Stratford in September 2013. The university's roots can be traced back to 1892 when the West Ham Technical Institute was established. It gained university status in 1992. In February 2019, it had more than 17,000 students from 135 countries.UEL can trace its roots back to 1892, when the newly formed County Borough of West Ham decided to establish a West Ham Technical Institute to serve the local community. The Institute was to be, in the words of John Passmore Edwards speaking at the building's opening ceremony, a "people’s university". The college provided courses in science, engineering and art, and also established its own internal degree courses in science and engineering, which were ratified by the University of London. In addition, it had a women's department. As demand for technical education grew throughout the 1930s and 1940s, Essex County Council created two further colleges at Walthamstow and Dagenham (South West Essex Technical College and South East Essex Technical College). In 1970 these three colleges (West Ham, Walthamstow, Dagenham) were combined as a merger of higher education colleges, to create the North East London Polytechnic. Campuses were modernised and revitalised by buildings such as the Arthur Edwards building on the Stratford campus, completed in 1982.In 1988 the North East London Polytechnic became a higher education institution, and was renamed the Polytechnic of East London in 1989. In 1992 the Polytechnic of East London became the University of East London, one of a number of "new universities". UEL's succession of founding institutions exemplify the developments that took place in British further and higher education policy throughout the late 19th and 20th centuries. The University of East London consisted of the Barking Campus (closed 2006) and the Stratford Campus. In 1999 the Docklands Campus was opened, the first new university campus built in London for over 50 years. In 2012, following previous opposition, UEL adopted the full increased tuition rates of £9,000 permitted by legislation enacted in 2010, an increase from the previous rate of £3,290. The university is a lead academic sponsor of Hackney University Technical College which opened in 2012, one of the first university technical colleges in England.Our new visionThe University of East London has been pioneering futures since 1898: from the 2nd Industrial Revolution through to where we are now, the 4th. We are a careers-led university, dedicated to supporting our students to develop the skills, emotional intelligence and creativity needed to thrive in a constantly changing world. Over the 2018-19 academic year the University of East London has been developing and starting to implement a new 10-year strategy, Vision 2028, to transform our curriculum, pedagogy, research impact and partnerships to make a positive difference to student, graduate and community success. Our ambitious but achievable goal is to become the leading careers-focused, enterprising university in the UK, one which both prepares our students for the jobs of the future and provides the innovation to drive that future sustainably and inclusively. As part of our Vision 2028 strategic plan, we have been working with staff, students, alumni, partners and other stakeholders to articulate who we are and what we have to offer. We worked with our stakeholders to come up with a new visual identity that reflects both our heritage and our relevance in the modern world. We want our identity to capture the rich blend of people, heritage, innovation and life in east London. We are proud of where we have come from but it's important that we shape the future. Our new visual identity is perfectly poised for that.Our new logo reflects the importance of the University's origins but also represents an institution that is bold, confident and future-facing. It comes directly from the University coat of arms and has been designed to capture the pure essence of all that we are. The unique phoenix iconography combined with the Olympic torch hints to our heritage and location, whereas the cogs represent the instrumental part we play in the community and our connection to industry. Our logo honours our connection with our history, whilst reaching forward to the future. UEL offers both undergraduate and postgraduate degrees. In addition, extended degree programmes are available for many of the single honour programmes. In these programmes, students add a preliminary foundation year to the usual three-year programme. UEL offers a range of postgraduate degrees, including taught master's degrees, professional doctorates and research degrees including MPhils and PhDs. UEL has an MBA programme in Malaysia via collaboration with Women's Institute of Management Malaysia.UEL has student exchange programmes with numerous universities abroad, including financial support for those who participate through the Erasmus programme.We work with global organisations to make our courses entrepreneurial, creative and inspirational. Wherever our students want to work - in business, technology, teaching, arts, media, science, sport or the public sector - they will have the skills necessary to adapt to the world of tomorrow, and to be the leaders and pioneers of today. More and more, employers are seeking workers who possess skills such as emotional intelligence and creativity, the ability to think critically and undertake complex problem solving. That's why we've put these skills at the heart of every one of our degrees, counting towards students' final qualification. As evidence of these achievements we give our students a career passport that'll open doors.University can be a life-changing experience, and we ensure that our students get the support they need along their journey. Our Career Zone has a dedicated Career Coaching team, as well as one to-one advice from our academic tutors, study skills sessions, mental wellbeing support, and peer advice from recent graduates to help students stay on track.
