I’m looking at a course at the University of East London specifically at the dock lands campus and wondered what it was like? I’ve not had the chance to visit but want to know what the unis like, student life, accomodation etc

Please do not go. I currently study at UEL (university of east london) and it is by far an awful university. The support staff are incompotent. The admin staff-even worse. I am so disappointed by the department I study in, who have treated students with a complete disregard. This is not discussed enough. The teaching is sub-standard, stretching to uninformative. I cannot wait to get out of here. I urge everyone not to study here. Wellbeing and mental health are not valued or even remotely considered. I have worked and studied at better institutes that reply to student emails, exert humanity and give you a better education. I am currently undergoing a complaint. My experience is shared amongst many of my cohort. Please when choosing a university, look at the student support and satisfaction percentage and choose accordingly. I only wish I had.

Ok thank you so much for your response. Do you mind me asking what course you’re studying as I’m very limited to the choices for the course I’d like to do and up until now UEL would have been my top choice. I will definitely be rethinking my options

Thank you so much for your response! Do you mind me asking what course you’re doing as I’m looking at one which has very limited choice when it comes to unis and before asking on here UEL would have been my top choice

I am currently doing a conversion course, which like yourself, only limited universities offer. I would definetly look elsewhere although I understand choices are limited. I would advise this as a last resort. In hindsight I wished I had reserached the uni more and come on here to check out feedback. I will be finished this year, but I feel it's my responsibility to inform other students. Its a huge financial comittment and I myself could not afford many options. But I would urge you to apply to somewhere else if you have an option too. Hope this helps.

Thank you so much it was really helpful. My other options are London met or uni of west London so will definitely look into them more. Thank you again for all your help!

Definitely look at the student satifaction percentage whatever course you study or university you attend. In my opinion if you can contact post grads from the course you want to attend either on here or maybe twitter or said uni website, they will be able to give you an unbiased account of their experience. I'm glad to help.

Hi!
I think everyone has different opinions and views about the uni but in my experience It is a great University! The residential halls are great and there's always some activity happening and you have opportunities to make a lot of friends, plus you it is located at the campus, so if you have class there it is perfect! You have the DLR located at the dockhands campus too and you can walk to Asda to get your groceries!
If you are interested please check the site for the accommodations https://www.uel.ac.uk/accommodation and if you have any questions about applying and +44 (0) 20 8223 3333 [email protected] . 😊

I've seen you everywhere in different names, this is embarrassing. I don't even go to the school but at this point it just seems like your bitter or something. Stop scaring people that are considering attending if you have nothing new to say because at this point you're not credible at all.
