I having completed a MA course in social work with UEL and Tavistock- I have never known anything so unorganised! Placements were delayed, marking assignments were delayed by a week, and now graduation was postponed due to the marks not being sent to the assessment board in time. I would not recommend this university to anyone! Don’t waste your time or money! read more

i want to give 0 star rating but its not allow me to do. The worst university ever for international student, They will give you so importance before applying in UEL and when you pay the fees then your value is zero. They didn't solve my single query for last 5 months. I feel very regret why i choose this university, at the time of interview at the embassy i told them many qualities of this university like why i choose this university and now i am thinking this university is not even meet the single quality. i just regret, not a single student is happy with this university and i will suggest you all if you want to ruin your future then go ahead and choose this university. read more

I am overwhelmed by the level of support I am receiving by the tutors at the UEL. I study HR in my first year and I feel more than well looked after. I have great communication with all my tutors in relation to all subject matters. The most important details required for the assignments completion, are repeated sufficiently, so all students can understand and remember what exactly they need to do in order to be successful in UEL. The university exceeded my expectations by far in every aspect. The culture in the place is friendly, easy going and extremely supportive. I highly recommend UEL to anyone who is actually wants to study, learn and graduate. read more

I'm doing my MSc in Pharmaceutical Sciences and this is the biggest waste of money in my life. I have changed my career path as the teaching is so terrible I do not feel equipped to enter the field. Lecturers expect bare minimum of you and provide awful lectures which you can easily find on Google on dodgy sites so its not even their own material. Next to no actual hands on experience and limited range of research projects. Labs are not modern as advertised, and the MSc lab project room has no air con or fans so it's absolutely unbearable yet your expected to keep your legs covered and stay in there with your experiments. Assignments not challenging and most are unhelpful to learning. Staff unhelpful and rude. Student hub takes 7 months to get back to you. AVOID read more

It was difficult to give zero, I would not recommend staying on campus for anything but WiFi. The staff are pretty rude and seem to be there for a laugh. You will find caring staff, few and far between. The Campus culture starts from the TOP, not the bottom. That being said the catering staff are lovely. read more

Had the worst experiences at UEL. Staff DO NOT care about you! They just want money from you! Staff are completely inappropriate and there are zero repercussions as they will take staff word over students. AVOID AT ALL COSTS. read more

Okay university, I personally experienced a lot of discrimination from both lecturers and peers. Fashion facilities were lacking with machines breaking often and there being a rat/mouse infestation in all the studio buildings. There seemed to be some clubs/societies but like the Student Union they aren't visible on campus. The location is alright but out of the way, not worth paying £9000 a year for in my opinion. read more

Despite my happy memories here I can say my friends and classmates made my experience. The uni itself wasn’t worth the fee in my opinion. Two tutors dropped out in my first year and our class has been complaining ever since from the lack of unorganisation and clarity from instructions. Especially this was stressful during the pandemic , our third year is graded the same as other years who have had full access to public areas and adequate equipment. It hasn’t really felt like a uni experience more like a part time job. On the positive side, there are good tutors here currently who are thoughtful and considerate, and give us opportunities to listen to guest speakers and hard talk on how to survive in the industry. In addition, one of my tutors helped me gain invaluable experience in the styling sector that I can’t thank enough. It’s just a shame that our third year is ending like this without contact with classmates or tutors for a year. read more

I'm currently doing a PGCE at UEL, throughout the past few months, Elicia has been incredibly supportive. Having completed an undergrad degree at a different university, the experience I'd have so far with her as my course leader has been amazing. When I've struggled, she's always immediately offered me options to help my situation. Just generally, as well, her demeanor is enormously helpful, I've had great advice without feeling pressured, her support offered is incredibly practical, helpful and her compassionate worldview comes across in her actions. Whilst the Admin with UEL can sometimes be a little difficult, in my experience, she's has always chased up any issues I've had and helped me. UEL itself can sometimes be a little frustrating (understandable given the current pandemic), Elicia has been an absolute rock. In terms of the RS PGCE, I would 100-percent recommend this course, purely on the basis of how much passion and support Elicia will give you! read more

I'm doing the dance course and the teachers themselves and content I really like, but as an international student the administration was terrible with COVID. They've charged me for rent after I had already left, and are withholding my 650 pound deposit when I know for a fact there's no damage in my room? They packed our things for us and luckily my things are ok but some of my friends had some items lost. No one was updating me on where my stuff was and how many boxes there were. I arranged for my friend to come get my things recently and when she arrived there was no one there and no one answered the phone. Then they later say it takes them up to 5 days to read emails?? Now I need an enrollment form to sort my tuition payments. I've been asking them since July. They finally send me the completed form last week, and they forgot to attach the form to the email?? Absolutely insane, so much unecessary stress and it seems like they only have one single person working at the HUB admin. read more
