What our staff say:

“About 20 years ago, I worked part-time at the Docklands Library, assisting students like me and my peers in West Philly with finding resources to support their studies. The part-time role enabled me to spend time with my young son while developing my management skills running the library services. As my son got older, I left University of East London to gain experience at other institutions around London then returned two years ago to take on the role of Director of Library, Archives and Learning Services. When I started the role, I was the only BAME director of an academic library in the UK; I am now one of two BAME directors with Masud Khokhar, Director of Library and Archives at University of York.”

Regina Everitt, Assistant Chief Operating Officer, Library, Archives and Learning Services

What our students say:

“As I did my 3 years Bachelors course with this university, it has been an amazing experience staying with UEL, especially when you are an international student and you know that you need to cope with a lot of things like work, where you need to maintain your 20-hour work shift; your studies; your projects and everything. Choosing UEL literally helped me with all of these aspects and with UEL having a Centre for Student Success, employment hubs and Career Zones, helps you throughout your way to finish your journey. They also help you write your own CV, develop interview skills and personal 1-1 meetings. Having such helpful people around you makes your journey quite easy to finish.”
