Our International Student Advice (ISA) team can give you all the help you need on issues from visas to funding. They can also advise on working in the UK, accommodation and language requirements.
We also have dedicated international pages with a single point of contact for global regions and countries, listing qualification and English requirements. It couldn’t be easier.

Choosing your course
How to apply
Submit your application: Once we receive your application, we will check whether you have supplied all the correct documents. If anything is missing, or we need more information, we will email you. Then we will assess your application and write to you with our decision.
Your offer: If we decide to offer you a place on your course, we will write to you with a conditional offer. The conditions could be academic, such as a qualification, or you may need to show that you meet the required standard of English. If you are in the UK, we may invite you to come for an interview to discuss your application.
Apply for your accommodation: We provide modern and attractive waterfront accommodation in our Student Village, located at our Docklands campus. Most of our international students choose to live in the village and as soon as you have firmly accepted your offer, you can apply for one of en-suite rooms.
Apply for your visa: Make sure you allow plenty of time to apply for your visa. To find out if you need one, visit your country page on our website. Our International Student Advice (ISA) team are very experienced with helping international students at each stage of the visa process.
Welcome to UEL: Congratulations. You’re now ready to come and enrol at the University of East London. If you sign up for our Welcome Programme, we will meet you at the airport. We also run a comprehensive acclimatisation programme for international students – including exciting trips to London and other parts of the UK.
