The Park itself covers over 560 acres, and it’s the perfect place to explore outside of lectures! Many of our students use the world-class sporting facilities on our campus door step. It’s also a scenic green space, home to a vast variety of wildlife and wetlands. Enjoy the picnic spots with friends; you can even take a boat tour to experience the sites of the Park from the canal.
#2 Generous Scholarships

We support East London graduates through our Inspiring Success programme, but we also have a number of scholarships that are open to both UK/EU and International students.
