Pharmacology

A Undergraduate Program offered by University of East London .

  • Deadline is Aug 3, 2020.
  • Start Date is Sep 9, 2019.
  • Teaching languages are English.
  • Price $16,290.
  • Duration 3 Years.

Course summary

Our passion for pharmacology and our reputation for excellence stretches back to the distant days when the University of East London was called the West Ham Technical Institute.


After half a century of studying drugs and how their application affects the prevention and treatment of disease, we’re now celebrating the landmark 50th anniversary of our pharmacology teaching and research at UEL.

Not only are we sure we’ve never been better, but we think our future’s never been more exciting.

A new, revamped course will equip you for a rewarding future in what our prize-winning, internationally recognised lecturers believe is the most fascinating of the biosciences.

We’ll give you a thorough introduction to every area of pharmacology through our diverse and flexible approach. You’ll also leave with a thorough understanding of areas such as molecular biology, physiology, microbiology, genetics and toxicology.

You’ll be in the lab learning pharmacological techniques that will back up your lectures and demonstrate how medicines work.

You’ll be involved in groundbreaking research projects and have access to excellent work opportunities. This could be in the form of an optional placement year or a shorter summer placement at a major organisation such as the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) or in our own labs working with our internationally recognised researchers.

Don't just take our work for it, take a look at our video of some of our former students here

Also, if you want to find out more about Pharmacology, have a look at the British Pharmacological Society videos here.

What you'll learn

We’ve made this an up-to-date yet still classical pharmacology course, and one which employers will recognise for the quality of the graduates it delivers.

 

As with our other bioscience degrees, the first year provides a solid, general background in biochemistry, human anatomy, cell biology and genetics. This uniform approach means you can still transfer to another degree course at the start of your second year should you wish.

 

Second-year students learn the fundamental pharmacological concepts, drug discovery and development as well as advanced biochemistry and disease processes. In your third year, you’ll examine pharmacological treatment for diseases of the nervous system and other organ systems as well as toxicology.

One of the strengths of BSc Pharmacology at the University of East London is the emphasis we place on emerging therapeutic strategies and research opportunities. It means you can undertake a fascinating and significant lab-based research project in your final year.

How you'll be assessed

 

We’ll assess you with a mixture of coursework and exams. Coursework includes essays, research reports, group and seminar presentations and a final-year project. Most of the assessment in your first year is by coursework and we’ll give you as much feedback as possible.


In your third year, you’ll either take five core modules or undertake a work placement. We’ll assess you accordingly. 
 

How you'll learn

Our course is demanding but enjoyment is always at its heart. “We’ve massively improved and increased our labs and brought in innovative teaching and problem-based learning,” says Dr Michael Seed, a Reader in Pharmacology.

“Our students sent us a card last year saying ‘thank-you so much for looking after us and making pharmacology so much fun’. The whole idea is fun!”

Dr Seed and course leader Dr Samir Ayoub (Senior Lecturer in Pharmacology and himself a former pharmacology student at UEL) are brilliant as well as entertaining. The BPS recognised this by awarding them the 2014 Rang Prize for excellence in pharmacological teaching. They're both active in pharmacology research.

They want you to be as enthused about the subject as they are and you'll have the opportunity to work with them on key research projects.

For instance, Dr Seed and a colleague submitted a case report to the British Medical Journal for a simple drug which has been dramatically helping sufferers of Loin Pain Haematuria Syndrome, a condition often said to cause the worst pain known to humankind. His UEL students have been helping his research into this dreadful condition.

We want you to become integrated in the pharmacology world and encourage you to join the BPS. You’ll help out, be a delegate and sometimes even present your work at BPS conferences.

You’ll also hear from distinguished guest lecturers organised by our student Pharmacological Society. Recent speakers include Professor Humphrey Rang FRS, President of the BPS and author of our core textbook Pharmacology, and Professor David Nutt, the controversial former government 'drugs czar' who told us, “Pharmacology is the queen of bioscience.” We agree.

Your future career

For years, we’ve been helping produce successful career pharmacologists. Thirty years ago, Dr Paul Mitchell studied here. Now he’s Director of Studies for Natural Sciences at the University of Bath - and we use one of his practicals on our course.

Our course is geared towards thinking about your future, especially with its work placements and other opportunities for work experience.

The story of Suman Gurung gives an idea of how our course can kick-start your career. He was one of 13 of our students over the past two years awarded a BPS bursary worth £2,000 to attend an intensive, one-week residential research techniques course.

Suman's excellent final-year stem cell research project, conducted with course leader Dr Ayoub, helped earn him first-class honours degree. He then landed a job at a cosmetics company working on stem cell therapies for baldness.

And he’s far from the only one. Hilda Bellony had her research work presented at the BPS meeting and is now a healthcare scientist at Imperial College Hospital aiming for an MSc and then to become a clinical scientist. Veronica Franklin’s placement with the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has led to a permanent job with them.

Our  annual career conferences have been a source of inspiration, encouragement and valuable information and advice for pharmacology students. These events include talks by alumni pharmacology students, employers and recruitment agencies.

Your degree will leave you well placed to take up a research post, maybe at a university or in a research institute, to enter the exciting field of drug discovery. You’ll also be able to apply for medicine, dentistry, pharmacy and veterinary medicine as a graduate.

Politics and International Relations

A Undergraduate Program offered by University of East London .

  • Deadline is Aug 3, 2020.
  • Start Date is Sep 9, 2019.
  • Teaching languages are English.
  • Price $16,290.
  • Duration 3 Years.

Course summary

Do you want to make sense of the post-truth world, encapsulated by events such as Brexit and the US Election? Are you interested in understanding how global powers interact, both in times of war and peace?

Would you like to know more about international organisations and their capacity to control and shape development around the world? Do you want to learn about political participation and become an active citizen, so that you can contribute to policy-making processes?

If you answer 'Yes' to any of these questions, then our International Relations course is for you.

Global politics has become increasingly turbulent, foundations and systems are being shaken, and relations between nations are being shifted and tested. There is a new demand for experts who are able to understand and work in this new political arena. With our innovative Politics and International Relations course we can equip you with the skills and knowledge to play an active role in this new world.

There has never been a more pressing and fascinating time to study and make a career in international politics.

How you'll be assessed

The year of study is divided into two terms. If you’re a full-time undergraduate you’ll study three modules per term, each of which we assess with two pieces of coursework. Coursework is made up of essays, book reviews, presentations and project work.

How you'll learn

You’ll be based at our waterside Docklands campus, where we’ll teach you through a combination of lectures and small group seminars. Our emphasis will be on bringing international politics alive.

Our department has developed innovative teaching methods. For example, you will be encouraged to work in groups, write reports, and to give oral presentations.

We’ll encourage you to adopt a critical approach to the subject, to challenge the assumptions about how international politics operates and how it is depicted in the media.

In your third year, you’ll take a dissertation module. This will allow you to study an aspect of international politics that you've found particularly stimulating in greater depth. It will also enable you to develop and shape your own area of expertise.

“We are in the laboratory of east London, says Dr Hall. “Many research projects are focused here, so students will be out in the field when they come here.”

Your future career

You’ll develop a range of skills, knowledge and insights that you can transfer to careers in public bodies such as central and local government, pressure groups, non-governmental organisations (NGOs) or community organisations.

Your tutors place a strong emphasis on role-playing and simulation of real-life situations throughout the course. These will allow you to step into the world of work with confidence.

The variety of roles into which University of East London graduates go into is as wide as it is interesting. You could decide to move into the not-for-profit sector as a community organiser, a case worker or a civic engagement officer.

Or how about becoming a project manager or a campaign organiser? Equally, you’ll have gained the skills necessary to land a job as a communications officer or to specialise in research.

Not only is UEL at the forefront of research, it’s also pioneering new fields of study. Among the many postgraduate courses on offer for those who decide to stay with us is the innovative Refugee Studies MA course – the first of its kind in the country.

Kathryn Perera, chief executive of Movement for Change, can vouch for the rich opportunities available to our undergraduates.

“Studying international relations at UEL offers students the opportunity to access state-of-the-art political training and work with inspiring mentors,” she says.

Public Health

A Undergraduate Program offered by University of East London .

  • Deadline is Aug 3, 2020.
  • Start Date is Sep 9, 2019.
  • Teaching languages are English.
  • Price $16,290.
  • Duration 3 Years.

Course summary

Here’s a chance for you to study while making a difference to people’s lives. Public health is a dynamic, evolving international subject area, centred on improving the health, wellbeing and quality of life not just in the community around the corner but across entire nations.

It’s an area that’s made for students who are committed and caring, who believe in social justice and who are prepared to work hard within communities to effect change - to do something for the greater good.

At the University of East London, we pride ourselves on inspiring and developing health workers like that from all over the world. One of our students from Uganda told us, “I want to go back afterwards to apply what I’ve learned – and I want my children to be proud of the work I do.”

We’re definitely proud of the work our students do. We’ve revamped our course, making it more practical, ensuring there are more opportunities for you to benefit from work placements and health projects in the community. You’ll leave with hard-earned skills that will impress employers. You’ll be able to make a difference.

What you'll learn

“We’ve just revalidated our course and now the focus is much more on doing things,” explains Course Leader Paul Watts. “So we've trimmed down modules which previously had a lot of theory and it’s now a much more practical course.”

We’ll start in your first year by giving you a thorough understanding of health and healthcare in the UK. You’ll study epidemiology, the cornerstone of public health. It’s the science that studies the patterns, causes and effects of health and disease conditions in populations.

In your second year, you’ll take a practical module where you’ll use our computer labs to access and analyse health data before presenting an epidemiological report on it. That skill of interpreting data is in short supply in the UK and is in hot demand.

You’ll choose your own final-year project. It could be anything from the evaluation of a public health programme to a focus-group study analysing an important local health issue.

How you'll learn

It’s not all about note-taking and tutorial rooms. We like our students to learn in different ways. So a big component is for you to roll up your sleeves and throw yourself into a practical task.

For instance, when you study our Practical Epidemiology module you’ll be accessing significant information and using data analysis software to come up with your own solutions to real problems facing those working in public health.

You’ll be guided by supportive, enthusiastic tutors and lecturers whose specialities complement each other. Our team includes academics such as Dr Mahwish Hayee, who trained as a doctor in Pakistan, and Course Leader Paul Watts, who researches health behaviour and public health in deprived neighbourhoods.

Paul’s research activities have largely been with the Institute of Health and Human Development (IHHD), based at UEL. It’s spearheaded an important project called Well London, helping to deliver healthier eating programmes and new health initiatives in deprived areas. Some of our students volunteer to help and find it a valuable learning experience.

You’ll study a third-year Integrated Public Health module in which you’ll actually work on a project in the community, thanks to the excellent contacts of another of our well-connected lecturers, Anthony Bone.

Your future career

As the need for projects to deliver good health globally becomes ever more urgent, the more clearly we see that public health is not just everybody’s business - it’s a growth business, too. That’s why it needs graduates as well schooled as you will be in these crucial issues.

Employment opportunities abound. Our graduates have gone on to work for employers including Public Health England, local authorities, national government and the civil service, the NHS, charities and social enterprises.

They’ve become public health educators or specialists. They’ve worked in voluntary organisations in the UK and abroad, or advised on policy, or gone on to study epidemiology. Others go into further research. Anything is possible.

Ultimately, your success may depend on how resourceful, enterprising and self-starting you are. 

So it’s at this point that we’ll recount the story of Marina Haque. A forty-something mum who was persuaded by her five children to take up a place at the University of East London through clearing, Marina initially found the academic side challenging.

Yet she grabbed every chance to improve her basic skills, volunteered for the London Borough of Enfield’s public health department and astonished everyone by securing the presence of the head of Public Health England at a UEL conference.

Inspired by our course, she established stop-smoking campaigns outside her son’s primary school, an initiative which spread through the borough, and organised a series of pioneering health awareness events with different healthcare organisations.

Last year, our Marina graduated and announced a further ambition: “One day, I want to be called Dr Haque.” From this course, perhaps anything’s possible!

Social Work

A Undergraduate Program offered by University of East London .

  • Deadline is Aug 3, 2020.
  • Start Date is Sep 9, 2019.
  • Teaching languages are English.
  • Price $16,290.
  • Duration 3 Years.

Course summary

Are you interested in how people develop and what influences their behaviour? Do you want to help people at risk of harm? Are you interested in legislation and social policy?

This hugely popular course, one of UEL’s flagship degrees, will give you a rewarding insight into contemporary social work and train you to become a reflective, capable and effective practitioner. You’ll learn how to support, protect and speak up for people in significant personal difficulty.

We’ll give you the theory and information you need through lectures and seminars, but this course is all about hands-on experience – or ‘learning by doing’, as we call it.

You’ll undertake supervised placements in your second and third years, applying your learning by working on real-life projects. By doing this, you’ll be able to narrow down your areas of interest for your post-university career.

Thanks to an accreditation agreement between the University of East London and the Health and Care Professions Council, your degree will allow you to practise as a qualified social worker immediately after you graduate.

What you'll learn

On your journey from student to practitioner, you’ll be taught everything you need to know for a career in social work – current legislation and government policy, information sharing and confidentiality requirements, ways of communicating, social policy theories and research methods. 

But knowledge is just one side of the coin. Hands-on skills and experience are an equally important part of a social worker’s toolkit. That’s why ‘learning by doing’ is at the heart of our course. 

For example, you’ll learn about safeguarding and when to take action, how to observe, when to observe, how and when to listen, how to promote social justice and how to practise in a non-discriminatory manner. 

You’ll learn reflective practice – essentially, thinking more carefully about situations. You’ll receive plenty of support to help you develop emotional resilience and an ability to work with others to solve problems. 

Other key skills you’ll gain are the analysis and interpretation of evidence, as well as the art of critical thinking to draw on the appropriate knowledge and improve your performance as a social worker.

How you'll be assessed

We use a range of different assessment approaches. These include case studies, essays, group presentation, practice placement portfolios and a final-year dissertation. Most assessment is carried out through coursework. In order to undertake your first placement in your second year, you’ll first have to pass all of the first-year modules. Similarly, before you can undertake your final-year placement, you’ll have to have completed your second-year modules and placement.

How you'll learn

As well as lectures, seminars, tutorials and practice-based workshops, you’ll learn using role-playing methods to give you crucial skills in areas such as reflective practice, working with others and emotional resilience. 

Preparation for your placements involves skills development, shadowing an experienced practitioner and learning teaching skills with service users and carers. 

You’ll explore different approaches to researching the social world, and we’ll help you to develop your own research proposal.


You’ll carry out two practice placements in a voluntary organisation or a local authority. These allow you to test out the theories and skills you’ve learned in the classroom. We'll support you to reflect on what you’ve learned in these placements and to develop your practice. 

Across the three years of your course, you’ll spend a total of 170 days on direct placement working in the community – a 70-day placement in year two and a 100-day placement in year three. You’ll also spend a further 30 days of developing your skills through practice learning. 

You’ll have the benefit of a personal tutor to support you with your academic study and any other needs you might have. The tutor will visit you at least twice on each of your placements to help deal with any issues that might arise.

Your future career

We have more than 1,000 applicants for places on this course every year and only 65 places. Just to be accepted onto our programme is a massive achievement, and you’ll when on your way to a rewarding career in social work. 

Because we’re the principal social work training provider in east London, you can rest assured that you’ll be in very safe hands when it comes to finding a job after graduating. 

We have strong links with local social work agencies and employers, who have known and trusted us and our graduates for many years. Our students are in constant demand for newly qualified social worker posts, so choosing this course will give you a head start when it comes to finding a job in social work in east London. 

We’re fully accredited by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) to award professional qualifications in social work alongside academic degrees. When you complete this degree, you’ll be eligible to register with the HCPC and practice as a social worker, though you’ll still be required to continue your professional development as part of your professional registration. 

You’ll do this through what’s known as your ‘Assessed and Supported Year in Employment’, and you’ll also have the option of gaining further qualifications, including a master’s degree. 

Through these courses, you can continue to develop academically and professionally in line with the framework agreed by The College of Social Work – social work’s professional body.

Sport Therapy

A Undergraduate Program offered by University of East London .

  • Deadline is Aug 3, 2020.
  • Start Date is Sep 9, 2019.
  • Teaching languages are English.
  • Price $16,290.
  • Duration 3 Years.

Course summary

We have no hesitation in singing the praises of our sports therapy course. “I think it’s the UK’s leading course, based on its design, its brilliant staff and its location right next to the Olympic Stadium,” says Course Leader Michael Cole. “I think it’s unbeatable.”

It’s a bold claim, but we believe our three-year course – potentially four if you choose our placement year option – merits it. Why? Because it produces sports therapists who’ve had the benefit of expert teaching, plenty of practical experience and whose skills are always in demand.

If you want to work with injured athletes and help them back to full fitness and competition, this course is for you.

You won’t just be there to step in when injury occurs, though. You’ll also need to learn and understand the sports science behind a successful diagnosis as well as how to manage injuries. 

With us, you’ll become highly employable and earn a reputable professional degree from which you can build a successful career.

What you'll learn

This course will give you all the knowledge you’ll need to become confident and assured in five key areas of sports therapy – prevention of injuries, recognition and evaluation, management, rehabilitation and education.

You’ll start by learning all about biomechanics (discovering how the human body moves), anatomy, first aid for sport and sports massage. We’ll introduce you to research skills and methods that you’ll end up using to complete an independent research project in your final year.

In your second year you’ll learn the finer points of manual therapy as well as how to make nutritional assessments and analyse movement. In your final year, you’ll specialise more and study advanced first aid, including how to remove a casualty safely from the field of play. 

Your final independent research project will be your opportunity to make a detailed study of an area of injury prevention or therapy that particularly interests you.

How you'll be assessed

 

We’ll assess you with a mixture of coursework and exams. Coursework includes essays, research reports, group and seminar presentations and a final-year project. Most of the assessment in your first year is by coursework and we’ll give you as much feedback as possible.


The balance of coursework and exams in year two will depend on your optional choices. In your third year, half of your assessment will be based on research coursework and a work placement.

How you'll learn

Right from the start of our innovative course, you’ll find yourself out and about working at local, national and international events. 

You’re just as likely to be found helping fun runners at a local road race as learning from experts at a major international event. Last year, that was a trip to the Berlin Marathon.

We’ll offer you fantastic opportunities for hands-on experience. For instance, thanks to our third-year employability module, one of our students is currently studying for her degree while working for a couple of days each week at Essex County Cricket Club.

If you opt for the one-year placement between years two and three, you could find yourself enjoying rare opportunities made possible by staff with enviable contacts. For example, our Course Leader, Michael Cole, has worked with top football clubs, the British swimming squad and Britain’s Olympic team (Team GB).

Surveying and Mapping Sciences

A Undergraduate Program offered by University of East London .

  • Deadline is Aug 3, 2020.
  • Start Date is Sep 9, 2019.
  • Teaching languages are English.
  • Price $16,290.
  • Duration 3 Years.

Course summary

Surveying involves the precise measurement of spatial data - information that’s crucial to a huge range of construction projects, on land and offshore.

On large building projects, surveyors are the first on site to establish the basic measurements and the last to leave, checking everything is in the right place.

Surveyors are also in high demand, and this course will give you the skills to take advantage of a worldwide employment market.

We have superb links with industry and run a regular programme of guest speakers. You’ll also visit major projects in London - one of the world’s most dynamic construction areas.

You’ll undertake a 50-50 split of academic and practical work. This will involve fieldwork projects, including a residential scheme at the end of your first year, and classroom and laboratory exercises.

You’ll also be able to apply for student membership of the Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors - an international qualifying body dedicated to the regulation, education and training of surveyors working in civil engineering.

What you'll learn

You’ll learn the techniques required to produce the reliable spatial data on which all construction tasks depend.

You won’t just be measuring. You’ll be analysing data, presenting it and managing it. And of course re-measuring… just to be sure.

The course involves a range of ways to map geographical features. You’ll learn about land surveying and geodesy, which involves taking into account the earth’s curvature when you are measuring large areas.

Other fields of study will involve photogrammetry – the science of making measurements from photographs – laser scanning, remote sensing, and hydrographic surveying, typically investigating the seabed.

We’ll also introduce you to cadastral surveying, which combines technical and legal knowledge to establish boundaries.

The modules you’ll take include land and construction surveying, legal and regulatory framework, computer programming, data acquisition and 3D modelling, engineering surveying and sea surveying.

All match the required standards of the Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors (ICES).

How you'll be assessed

The way we assess you varies from module to module but will include examinations, coursework, project work, laboratory reports, presentations, and tests of competence in practical sessions.

How you'll learn

With more than 60 years' experience, surveying is one of the longest established areas of teaching within the University of East London.

Most of our students on this course work part-time in the profession, including during the summer break, while they’re studying. This is usually on a paid basis.

Throughout your studies you’ll undertake a number of small projects, usually based on practical work. Your final year will include a project involving independent research and study of a technical subject.

This project will be supervised by a member of staff with an interest in the field and will normally include some laboratory work or the analysis of a specific surveying problem. Throughout, you’ll be working with the very latest surveying equipment and software.

Each term, we’re visited by around 20 local industry professionals – known as the Industrial Advisory Board (IAB) – to update us on changing requirements for graduates. They also supervise final-year projects, when they’ll be looking out for likely candidates to recruit for jobs.

This course also has regular contact with Fugro UK, the offshore surveying and exploration company, Plowman Craven, one of the UK’s biggest land surveyors, and other major construction companies such as Skanska and Costain.

Your future career

This course has a superb record in getting graduates into employment.
Likely UK destinations include the Highways Agency, Network Rail, Thames Water and local authorities.

The emphasis placed internationally on precision measurement of boundaries in property sales means surveyors are hugely valued worldwide. 
Many overseas students who graduate from this course return home to work in their government land survey departments.

Other graduates have moved into UK companies specialising in surveying land for new houses or roads.

The course is also a route into forensic surveying, which establishes precise data for use in court cases. You might be involved in checking measurements following a serious road accident, or attending a serious crime scene, such as the aftermath of bomb explosion.

Your knowledge of hydrographic surveying will equip you for worldwide employment opportunities in the fields of offshore gas and oil exploration.
These skills are also required for tasks such as searching for aircraft which have disappeared over the ocean. The search in the Pacific for a missing Malaysian Airlines plane in 2014 involved hydrographic surveyors.

Recent UEL graduates in Surveying and Mapping Sciences have gone on to land jobs with FUGRO, Plowman Craven, Ordnance Survey, Scopus, Survey Solutions and Crossrail.

Course summary

The University of East London is making swift strides towards its aim of becoming London’s No 1 university for sport, and our much-admired Sport and Exercise Science degree is leading the way.

Study our challenging course and you’ll be examining the role that biomechanics, physiology, psychology and nutrition play in human performance. You’ll also look at how these disciplines interact, so you receive the complete education a multi-disciplinary sports scientist needs.

You’ll have the chance to study optional subjects that give our course its special flavour – such as our module in disability sport.

It’s a course that has attracted some of Britain’s leading sportsmen and women of the day such as European 200m champion Adam Gemili, Commonwealth 200m bronze medallist Bianca Williams and double European and Commonwealth medal-winning swimmer Aimee Willmott. It also develops the sports scientists and teachers who’ll help deliver the champions of tomorrow. 

If you want to know how good our course is, don’t just take our word for it. Listen to Adam.

“As an athlete you need to understand how your body works - the biomechanics," he says. "That knowledge has really helped me when I’m in the blocks to get the biggest first step that I can.”

What you'll learn

We’ve worked hard to make this course as flexible as possible and you’ll discover we’ve found a pretty good balance between learning theory and actually seeing what that looks like in practice.

The beauty of sharing a first year with your colleagues from our Sports Coaching and Sport, Physical Education and Development courses is that you can swap to one of those courses at the end of year one if you wish. 

In year two, you’ll complete a mixture of compulsory and optional modules. The options include Disability, Sport & PE, Principles & Practice in Teaching & Coaching and Inclusion in Youth Sport & PE.

For your final-year project, there’s more scope to specialise, allowing you to focus on areas of particular interest to you. 

For instance, one of our students studied the coaching philosophy of Saracens Rugby Union Club. Another went to Leyton Orient to research how football goalkeepers distribute the ball after collecting it in their area. This fascinating study led to him becoming a match analyst at the club after graduating.

How you'll be assessed

 

We'll assess you with a mixture of coursework and exams. Coursework includes essays, research reports, group and seminar presentations and a final-year project. Most of the assessment in your first year is by coursework and we’ll give you as much feedback as possible.


The balance of coursework and exams in year two will depend on your optional choices. In your third year, half of your assessment will be based on research coursework and a work placement.

How you'll learn

We definitely like to do things differently at UEL, so there’s no danger of it being all lectures and no practical application. Indeed, we want you to throw yourself into sport. So you’ll get involved in workshops and do your own sports coaching and lab sessions.

You’ll learn in top-quality facilities at both our Docklands and Stratford campuses. We have fully equipped and advanced labs, including our own biomechanics suite to study people’s gait as well as specialist software used for nutritional analysis.

At our £21million SportsDock complex, we have a superb fitness centre and strength and conditioning room.

It’s important to us that our course is aligned with the principles of the British Association of Sports and Exercise Science (BASES), the UK’s professional body for sports and exercise science in the UK. The course is also accredited by SkillsActive, so you’ll be able to complete your Level 2 and Level 3 Gym and Personal Training Awards while you’re here.

Your friendly and supportive tutors, led by Dr Richard Buscombe, are all active in research and in community-based projects. You can get involved in worthwhile schemes like the one, funded by the NHS, in which we deliver exercise sessions for people with clinical conditions and young people who’ve suffered from alcohol and drugs abuse.

Your future career

A host of exciting career avenues in the sporting and teaching worlds will open up to you once you graduate, but the great thing about our course is that you may find they open up to you even while you’re studying for your degree.

That’s because our work placements and the relationships we have built with sports organisations and schools are so strong.

They’re optional and flexible placements, which means you can choose your best time to undertake them. We have strong links with football clubs such as Leyton Orient, West Ham and Millwall and various sports academies and schools. 

We’ve had students working at activeNewham, the sports arm of our local council, London Sport and the Olympic Park, which is right on our doorstep in Stratford. In some cases, these placements lead to full-time jobs. For instance, Oktay Huseyin was placed at a tennis academy in Essex and is now the head of strength and conditioning there.

Some of you will go on to further study, like one of Dr Buscombe’s students who did an extraordinary third-year project on spirituality and fandom in Lithuanian basketball. She’s now studying the same subject for her PhD in Melbourne.

Our graduates have gone on to work for employers as varied as the National Basketball Association (NBA), Leyton Orient FC and the London Borough of Newham.

We’ve produced coaches, fitness club managers, personal trainers, private and community coaches and teachers. We even managed to find one of our students, Marshall Tutu, some tennis opportunities between his studies. Now he’s playing as a full-time professional.

We’ll assess you with a mixture of coursework and exams. Coursework includes essays, research reports, group and seminar presentations and a final-year project. Most of the assessment in your first year is by coursework and we’ll give you as much feedback as possible.

In your third year, you’ll either take five core modules or undertake a work placement. We’ll assess you accordingly.

How you'll learn

One of the hallmarks of a University of East London course is the variety of ways in which you’ll be invited to learn. It could be through lectures, presentations or practical lab sessions in our dedicated pharmaceutical science lab.

You’ll hear from fascinating guest speakers, including industry experts. And you could find yourself, as our previous students have, presenting your own research work at the London BioNat Network Research meeting in front of eminent scientists.

Our supportive, friendly staff are experts in all areas of the subject. They’re led by Dr Mukhlesur Rahman, an internationally renowned expert in the field of drugs discoveries from medicinal plants. His research has been extensively published and he has lectured at major conferences in India and the United States.

Your third-year project will offer you exciting and stimulating research opportunities. Some of Dr Rahman’s students are currently working on projects on medicinal plants, looking for a new compound that might work against the ‘super bug’ MRSA.

We’re keen for you to see at first hand how the pharmaceutical industry works. So we have recently organised visits for our third-year students to the labs of GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), the science-led global healthcare giants.

We’ve also helped organise work placement opportunities for some of our students to work at Herbs in a Bottle – a pharmaceutical company that supplies herbal medicines.

“The way we've designed modular structures of the course, we aim our students to acquire the best possible intellectual and transferable skills for their life-long learning," says Dr Rahman.

"This will not only make them happy in securing a rewarding job but also develop their confidence in critical thinking and problem-solving in pharmaceutical sectors."

 

Your future career

You’ll find that your degree in pharmaceutical science will be an ideal entry point into a range of careers, giving you plenty of choice about the direction you take.

You could, for example, go on to work with a pharmaceutical company helping to develop new drugs and evaluating their effectiveness.

Pharmaceutical companies employ graduates to help advise customers on the technical aspects of the products they offer. Then there are chemical companies looking for graduates who understand how drugs are developed and have proven analytical skills.

If you’d rather pursue an academic or research-based career, you can build on your BSc with an MSc, MRes or PhD.

Outside the chemical industries, a degree in pharmaceutical science will open up teaching opportunities and careers in finance and accounting.

Whatever your next step, after the contacts you’ve made and the opportunities you’ve had to see the pharmaceutical industry up close during your course, you’ll leave us perfectly prepared to pursue a rewarding career.

The statistics back this up. The latest figures show 81 per cent of UEL’s bioscience graduates are in work within six months of finishing their degree.

Our course offers an in-depth understanding of the causes of disease and the practical ways in which they can be investigated in the laboratory. These are the fundamental areas of knowledge that you’ll need as a biomedical scientist.

Course Leader Dr Claudio Scotti believes the popularity of the course is because it's “broad-based”. It’s ideal for students who want to make a career in bioscience but have not yet decided in exactly what area to specialise.

The course, which offers extensive laboratory training, shares a common first year with other bioscience degrees, so you’ll have the option to switch to a similar degree course at the end of your first year if you wish.

The course is also available with a year-long work placement between years two and three. If you choose this option, you’ll have the chance to spend your third year working in a laboratory, adding valuable practical experience to your growing academic knowledge.

If you don't meet the entry requirements for a BSc degree, you have the option of taking an extended, four-year version of this course. You’ll take a Bioscience foundation year which will prepare you for the BSc degree.

What you'll learn

This course is based on the study of the biology of disease. Your first year is common to all bioscience students at UEL and covers four areas: essential chemistry, cell biology, biochemistry and human anatomy and physiology.

In your second year, your five core subjects will be supplemented by optional work placements. You can choose a short placement or a full year away from the University. Taking a longer option will undoubtedly help your career prospects once you graduate.

In your final year, you’ll gain an understanding of what causes disease as well as studying clinical infection and immunity.  You’ll do a core module in cellular pathology and blood science that will show you how to identify normal and pathological tissues using a microscope.

You’ll also undertake your own original research project in your final year, for which you’ll be generating and assessing data. You can do this through library work or in a laboratory. The choice is yours.

How you'll be assessed

 

We’ll assess you with a mixture of coursework and exams. Coursework includes essays, research reports, group and seminar presentations and a final-year project. Most of the assessment in your first year is by coursework and we’ll give you as much feedback as possible.


In your third year, you’ll either take five core modules or undertake a work placement. We’ll assess you accordingly. 

How you'll learn

We like to keep the learning varied and interactive at the University of East London, so you’ll be encouraged to participate in a wide range of subjects, including lectures, seminars, workshops, laboratory practicals and web-learning.

We’ll strongly encourage you to take the option of a full-year placement outside the University at the end of your second year. These placements represent great opportunities - jobs that can involve anything from sample collection in a laboratory to actually running supervised tests.

Recent history shows that many of these opportunities lead to full-time jobs. It’s a competitive process to land such an opportunity, but well worth it.

As Course Leader Dr Claudio Scotti says: “People are desperate to find work experience because without that, it’s not easy to find a job. If you have a work placement with us, though, you’ll have a head start.”

There are also opportunities to help out on research projects being carried out by our academic team. For example, students of Dr Scotti have aided his research into the health claims made by manufacturers of probiotic foods.

Your own research project could turn you into a prize-winner like one of our students, Dee Davis, who’s been recognised by the Society for General Microbiology for her microbiology and immunology research.

Your future career

Biomedical science is a constantly evolving field, and there are plenty of rewarding career opportunities for graduates. 

The knowledge you’ll gain through your studies, combined with the practical experience of working in a pathology laboratory, will set you on an exciting path. Once you’ve got your Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS) registration, you could find yourself working in the National Health Service, making a crucial contribution to modern healthcare.

Computer Games and Development

A Undergraduate Program offered by University of East London .

  • Deadline is Aug 3, 2020.
  • Start Date is Sep 9, 2019.
  • Teaching languages are English.
  • Price $16,290.
  • Duration 3 Years.

Course summary

Whether it’s the fun of Super Mario or the horror of Resident Evil that consumes you, this is your chance to convert your passion for playing games into knowledge about how to create and design them.

 You’ll get the most out of our course if you come with an interest in all kinds of games – board, card and pen-and-paper - not just digital ones. You’ll be amazed what you can learn from games like Munchkin or Dungeons and Dragons.

We run two games courses at UEL, subtly different but both sharing the same focus on designing games and game play.

“Frankly, there are no other courses similar,” says Senior Lecturer David Dorrington. “We’re not a computing course nor an arts course. We’re about designing experiences of play, designing emotional experiences, allowing students to develop a skill set so they can develop a game from scratch.”

Our course will equip you, like many of our successful graduates, for a role in the expanding games industry.

By the end of your course, you should be playing a game you designed yourself – and hopefully following in the footsteps of the many UEL graduates now making their mark in the games industry.

What you'll learn

Both of our three-year computer games courses share a common core of modules. The Computer Games Development course differs slightly, though, with its emphasis on the application of traditional software development and programming skills to game and gameplay design.

In your first year, you’ll look at the basic theoretical and practical aspects of games design and development. One day you could be deconstructing Asteroids or Pac-Man, the next creating your own board game. You’ll be learning about graphics and prototyping production techniques as well as games theory.

In your second year, you’ll concentrate on more detailed games design as well as studying games research methods. You’ll also get the chance to apply your developing knowledge by working for a live client.

You’ll gain valuable insights into all aspects of professional practice. It’s not just about designing games but about communicating your ideas properly, so you’ll take part in presentations and pitches.

In your final year, you’ll complete an individual research and dissertation project. A group of you will also conceptualise, design and develop an original game to give you a proper feel for how the games industry works.

At the same time, you’ll be putting the final touches to your final professional portfolio to ensure you are in the best possible position after your graduate.

How you'll be assessed

Learning takes place through lectures, seminars, practical workshops in specialist labs, screenings, presentations, critiques and invited speakers from industry. Tutorial sessions are a major part of the course, as well as personal one-to-one supervision of final-year projects and dissertations. All assessment is via practical, theoretical and group and individual project coursework.

How you'll learn

You’ll have rare insight into the games world thanks to tutors and lecturers who know it inside out. They include Senior Lecturer Richard Leinfellner, the former vice-president of Electronic Arts. A major figure in the business for 30 years, he has unrivalled contacts in the industry.

Our facilities are outstanding, too. We have equipment to study user experiences such as brainwave activity while playing games. We also have specialist, dedicated laboratories such as our Ludology Lab, which is equipped with industry-standard hardware and software. It’s a treasure trove of hundreds of video and board games run by - and beloved by - our students.

In your second year, you’ll work to a games creation brief set by a client. This year we’re involved in a prestigious partnership with Endemol, the global multi-platform entertainment company which has produced worldwide TV hits such as Big Brother and Deal Or No Deal.

The company has given us intellectual property from a number of their TV programmes to turn into games. Over the year, our students will create a game for them while demonstrating that it meets their brief.

We run an exciting programme of guest lectures from industry professionals. A recent speaker was Tim Heaton, the creative director of Creative Assembly, who gave a behind-the-scenes talk about Alien Isolation.

Your future career

We believe our courses are ideal preparation for a career in the games industry - and we can point to a couple of BAFTAs to back it up.

After graduating with a computer games degree here, Ashraf Mohammad started working with Rocksteady as a games tester. He has gone on to work on the Batman series of games and was a member of the team who won the 'Best Gameplay' and 'Best Game' BAFTAs for Batman: Arkam Asylum.

He's just one in a long line of UEL graduates who have made a real impact in the industry. For instance, in the last five years, two have featured in Develop Magazine’s list of the industry’s top 30 most promising young talents.

One, Richard Hamer, is now a top designer for Sony Entertainment Europe. The other, Ryan Wiltshire, worked for leading companies and has now set up his own studio. Another graduate, Matt Glanville, is a highly respected designer who’s now working for Just Add Water on Oddworld.

Some students go on to work as designers, programmers, testers and producers in a wide range of companies while others have become games design teachers themselves or launched successful careers in other areas of digital media.

Construction Management

A Undergraduate Program offered by University of East London .

  • Deadline is Aug 3, 2020.
  • Start Date is Sep 9, 2019.
  • Teaching languages are English.
  • Price $16,290.
  • Duration 3 Years.

Course summary

There are so many aspects to construction management – organising resources, materials, labour, and planning transport routes. Ensuring that a building project runs smoothly, with enough materials, equipment, workers and money to deliver it, is a huge task. So, too, is monitoring construction quality and progress.

This course will give you the knowledge, skills and understanding as well as industry contacts to help you develop into that role and to take on that kind of responsibility.  It is also accredited by the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) and fits within their educational framework for professional membership. 

Key areas you will study include the planning and financing of projects, required contract law and of course health and safety knowledge – both for yourself and others. Time planning and logistics, cost control and management, and quality control are vital skills for a construction manager, and they are skills we will help you to gain through problem solving, digital collaborative working as well as traditional team work activities.

This course can also be studied part-time day release as independent study or as a sponsored student on a Degree Apprenticeship programme for Site Construction Management.

What you'll learn

You will learn a broad range of skills in your first year, sharing modules in technology, surveying, maths and IT with Civil Engineering and Surveying students. Later in your second year you will specialise in specific construction management disciplines such as tendering and estimating, cost management and control, and contract law.  In your final year there are key modules in project management as well as a range of current up to date module options, including Quantity Surveying Practice and Built Asset Management. 

Building without proper safety planning can be a dangerous business when it comes to working at heights, excavating and shifting materials. You’ll learn how to manage it and make it safe. You’ll also learn about sustainable design. Plus, you’ll look at the contractual side of things, and how to ensure sub-contractors work to the required standards.

You need to have good inter-personal skills and be comfortable working as part of a large team, you will also have to keep in mind your client’s requirements at all times. This course will help you learn how to juggle all these responsibilities successfully.

How you'll learn

Our Docklands site offers outstanding laboratories and workshops where we’ll support you in your studies.  We organise regular weekly site visits to one of the hundreds of projects underway in and around London. This year’s programme was well received and was facilitated in collaboration with companies such as BAM, Berkeley Homes, Willmott Dixon, London & Quadrant and Mace.

You’ll learn through a mixture of lectures, tutorials, workshops and practical classes with both a 1st year surveying week long field trip and an opportunity to attend the prestigious Constructionarium field scheme. There you’ll work as a team with a sponsoring contractor, such as Atkins, and professional consulting engineers to build scaled-down versions of famous bridges or buildings.

You’ll have access to sophisticated software, including the BIM (Building Information Modelling) digital system. This has a huge database of information about components –where they can be found, how much they cost and what the best maintenance regime for them is. 

Each year we’re visited by around 20 local industry professionals – known as the Industrial Advisory Board (IAB) – to update us on changing requirements for graduates. They also supervise final-year projects, when they’ll be looking out for likely candidates to recruit for jobs.

We also have a programme of guest speakers. One of our regulars is Mark Shearon, a former UEL student who's now a senior Health and Safety Executive inspector.








 

Your future career

Thanks to our excellent links with industry, graduates from this course have gone on to work on projects all over the world. Some have been involved with UK construction projects such as the Shard and the Tottenham Court Road TFL Station. 

Your most likely job on graduation will be an assistant site manager, working in a role where you have responsibility for a broad range of activities. If you perform impressively on site, and deal well with people, you could soon find yourself taking responsibility for really large or intricate projects.

A typical project will take 18 months or two years, during which time you’ll be working very closely with a wide variety of people performing different jobs. 

Say you are working on a rail project, or on the London Underground, where work will often need to be scheduled for weekends and Bank Holidays. You might spend six months planning for one Bank Holiday weekend, booking in equipment, materials and labour. Imagine the satisfaction you will feel when everything you have planned for comes together.

It’s a hugely challenging but hugely rewarding area of employment.

Counselling

A Undergraduate Program offered by University of East London .

  • Deadline is Sep 3, 2020.
  • Start Date is Sep 9, 2019.
  • Teaching languages are English.
  • Price $16,290.
  • Duration 3 Years.

Course summary

Do you have a passion for helping people, do you feel inspired to make a positive change in people's lives, and to meet society's ever-growing need for help in times of mental health difficulties, bereavement, or any number of life's troubles? Then our undergraduate Counselling course is for you. 

Our course integrates current therapeutic approaches in an innovative way to prepare you to become a skilled, competent and reflective practitioner. It offers you a rare opportunity to gain both a BACP-accredited academic degree and a professional qualification, and through 108 hours of placements, you'll be well on your way to becoming an accredited practitioner.

We’ll give you in-depth knowledge of the four major psychotherapeutic approaches:

  • Person-centred
  • Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)
  • Psychodynamic
  • Existential 

You will develop your understanding of the key feature of counselling – the therapeutic relationship between counsellor and client. In order to achieve this, you’ll undergo personal therapy yourself, starting in year one. You’ll also practise what you’ve learned in lectures through video-recorded counselling sessions in the UEL labs. We’ll enhance your employment prospects by offering you work placements and a number of volunteering and community action projects.

Study our course and you can find yourself profoundly changing people's lives in a career that will give you incredible satisfaction and reward.

What you'll learn

We’ve made theory, practice, research and personal development the four pillars on which we’ve built our course.

In year one, you’ll study the foundations of the therapeutic process and practise basic counselling skills. You’ll have the chance to apply your knowledge through supervised counselling work placements during your second and third years. Additionally, in your third year you’ll carry out and write up a research project.

There are many ways of providing counselling, involving more than 400 different therapeutic modalities. The characteristic feature of this course is the highly contemporary way in which it integrates the main therapeutic approaches.

You’ll cover the main and well-established modalities of person-centred counselling, psychodynamic counselling, cognitive behavioural therapy and existential counselling.

By the time you graduate, you’ll have amassed at least 100 hours of client work. You’ll be well on your way to the 450 hours you need for full British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) accreditation.

How you'll be assessed

We’ll assess you with a mixture of coursework and exams. Coursework includes essays, reflective logs, clinical practice reports, research reports, group and seminar presentations and a final-year project. Most of the assessment is by coursework, and we’ll give you as much feedback as possible.

How you'll learn

From day one, when you come in you’ll go into the labs. And whatever you learn in theory in a lecture, you’ll put in practice in a lab.

You’ll videotape yourself counselling other students, and being counselled by them. The results will be reviewed in group meetings, where you’ll be given professional guidance to help you develop. 

Your tutors will also set you essays. So you’ll get practice and theory at the same time.

At the end of the first year you will start preparing for a work placement. The aim at this stage is to do at least 40 hours of work-based placement in a supporting or administrative role in a counselling service.

This will give you a sense of how the service works, what happens in team meetings and what policies are operating, how to write reports and letters to other professionals and what the role of a counsellor is. 

After writing an essay on your work placement, you’ll be assessed for a further clinical placement where this time you’ll be aiming to work with clients. 

You’ll be contacting places that have taken on University of East London students in the past. But you’ll have to do all the running, sending in your CV and covering letter and attending an interview. Just like real life, in fact.

“This is not an easy course,” says Course Leader Ioannis Fronimos. “We require students to do personal therapy because it is important in counselling to be aware of yourself and your own issues and processes. Put simply, not to have your own stuff spill into the work you do with others.”

Your future career

A huge bonus of studying for this degree is that you will graduate from a BACP-accredited course, having acquired more than 100 hours of client-work experience.


You’ll have a professional qualification, so you’ll be able to go straight into employment, getting a job as a counsellor or even starting up your own private practice. That’s how many of our graduates have begun their careers.


Other likely employment areas include charities, schools or NHS mental health services. You can work towards the full BACP accreditation of 450 hours of experience while working and getting paid.


And your early work-placement of 40 hours in an administrative role will give you a deeper understanding of the whole process involved within a counselling practice, enhance your workplace skills, help you get a clinical placement and widen your professional network.


This undergraduate course is ambitious and challenging and, when you’ve seen it through, you’ll find yourself at a level that many other students can aspire to only at postgraduate level.


If you prefer to continue with your academic career, you’ll be able to progress to postgraduate studies in psychotherapy, coaching or integrative coaching & counselling disciplines. Or you can go on to do a master’s in Psychology. All these avenues will be open to you.

Graphic Design

A Undergraduate Program offered by University of East London .

  • Deadline is Aug 3, 2020.
  • Start Date is Sep 9, 2019.
  • Teaching languages are English.
  • Price $16,290.
  • Duration 3 Years.

Course summary

As a future talent of the graphic design industry, we’ll prepare you for the exciting new challenges this field offers. You’ll need the ability to work both individually and as part of a team, making large-scale projects happen and bringing big ideas to life.

To land the job you want in graphic design you’ll need to be a strong visual communicator in the delivery of future products, services and ideas. So we want to provide you with all the tools to experiment but also to explore and invent, as you examine where 21st-century design is heading.

Our expert teachers will help you identify where your potential truly lies. At the University of East London, we’re a team. We’ll value your ideas and we’ll give you the confidence to express and realise them.

We’ll prepare you for a rewarding future career in graphic design by looking at the practical skills involved, as well as giving you a firm grounding in academic theory. At the core of all you’ll study and create, there is an uplifting sense of the spirit of design here. Check out our students' showcase booklets 
L'automàtica and G2016.

If you don’t meet the entry requirements for a BA, you can study this course as an ‘extended’ four-year course. You'll begin with a foundation year which prepares you for a successful transition to the BA degree.

What you'll learn

We believe graphic design is changing, becoming a bridge to connect people, communities, ideas and identities. Corporate design, for instance, must be responsible to people and communities as well as responding to commercial pressures. 

So new ways of working are emerging, and we’ll prepare you, as tomorrow’s designers, to engage with others to consider wider problems and issues.

Graphic designers need to be acutely aware of their roles and responsibilities. That’s why our course will prepare you to understand your subject in relation to other disciplines - principally economics, politics, psychology and ethical issues.

You’ll learn practical skills such as typographic design, classification of typefaces and their uses, and layout design. You’ll also explore book design, print production, advertising media, corporate branding and editorial design.

We’re at the cutting edge of developments in web design, motion graphics, design for social media and for communities. So you’ll examine both 2D and 3D working methodologies and media, too.

How you'll be assessed

 

We'll give you feedback throughout all of your practice modules. You'll document and reflect on this feedback and your learning in general in ‘research journals’. We monitor these journals in one-to-one tutorials throughout the learning period before you submit them for marking at the end of the module.

You'll also be given the opportunity to develop assignment tasks. The two main forms of assessment for practice modules are the journal and your portfolio.

How you'll learn

We work as a winning team in graphic design. “We’re all smarter because we work together,” as our course leader, Tim Foster, puts it.

You’ll be guided by supportive staff who’ve worked at the highest level of design practice. Lecturer Stephen Barrett has worked in the design industry for the past seven years and now runs his own design practice.

You’ll be able to take advantage of our academic team's excellent connections as you improve your skills by undertaking practical work experience.

Our visiting lecturers have included the award-winning film maker Jonathan Glazer, director of notable works in advertising, music videos and films 'Sexy Beast' (2000), 'Birth' (2004) and the critically acclaimed 'Under the Skin' (2013).

They’ve also featured top graphic designers such as Alex Cowper, Sara De Bondt and Jonathan Barnbrook, the one-time Damien Hirst collaborator, who himself was once taught by our own Tim Foster.

We’ll enable you to rehearse your future by providing you with a range of different experiences, including opportunities to study abroad and academic exchanges with great schools in Europe and America.

In 2014, we launched a fully equipped a design studio for our third-year students. It features iMacs, A3 and A4 scanners, laser printers with Riso printers and wall projectors.

And where better to study and create than in the creative hub of east London, with regular studio and agency visits arranged for you?

Check out our student blogs, www.uelgraphicdesign.co.uk and www.uelgoingpublic.co.uk 

Your future career

Our course helps develop graduates who are creative, innovative and going places.

Recently, two of our class of 2013, Charlotte Maeva-Perret and Francesco Tacchini, went on to study further at the Royal College of Art, where they're considered to be among the country’s leading young talents.

While some go on to postgraduate studies, others quickly start to make their names in leading design and advertising agencies, typographic design studios, corporate graphics companies and moving image production houses.

One 2012 graduate, Joe Pleass, has already had one of his co-creations selected for permanent exhibition in the design section of New York’s Museum of Modern Art. Called OTOTO, it’s a musical invention kit that allows you to make anything from a drum kit of saucepans to origami that sing when you touch them!

Joe, who’s also managed exhibitions at Tate Britain and Tate Modern, never looked back after going on one of our exchange visits with students in Minnesota.

Such placements, exchange trips and ‘live’ projects with professional designers are all geared to provide you with the experience that will prepare you for a career in graphic design.

Initially, that could be, for instance, as an assistant or freelance designer, an assistant art editor, magazine designer or advertising creative.

International Development

A Undergraduate Program offered by University of East London .

  • Deadline is Aug 3, 2020.
  • Start Date is Sep 9, 2019.
  • Teaching languages are English.
  • Price $16,290.
  • Duration 3 Years.

Course summary

Are you interested in finding out how social development is affecting the people who live in the world's poorest countries? Do you want to learn about globalisation and consider its impact on the people of Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean, the Middle East and Europe? Are you interested in the way NGOs work to address issues of poverty?

There has never been a more pressing time to study International Development, as globalisation continues to impact some of the world's poorest countries, or the global South, and the reaction to globalisation continues to manifest itself in first world countries in Europe and North America, such as Brexit and the election of the protectionist US President, exacerbated by major humanitarian issues such as the refugee crisis.

By drawing on economics, politics, cultural studies, and history, we attempt to address questions of poverty, inequalities (based on gender, ethnicity and power), conflict, migration and globalisation. We focus on the interconnections between the global South and North in responding to these challenges, especially the alleviation of poverty and response to natural disasters and humanitarian emergencies.

Our course gives you the skills and knowledge to pursue careers that give you ultimate job-satisfaction - working for positive change in the world - such as working behind the scenes of humanitarian aid, undertaking policy work for foreign affairs offices, or working for major international charities.

What you'll learn

While studying International Development you will ask questions such as: What is poverty? What is the connection between a country’s economy and the wellbeing of its people? How do issues such as inequality, conflict and faith relate to development? What is globalisation and how does it impact on all of our lives?

Our course gives special emphasis to the lived experience of people in the developing world. In doing so, it challenges the assumption that development is a purely economic phenomenon.

In addition to studying theory, you’ll learn about real-world issues in modules such as Human Mobility, Forced Migration and Social Change as well as The Politics of Global Powers and Imperialism Now: Economy, State and War.

In addition, you’ll learn a range of transferable skills that will equip you for future jobs and study in international development, whether in the private, governmental or non-governmental sector.

Many of our students go on to postgraduate study, either at UEL or other world-class institutions. We prepare you for this by introducing you to both qualitative and quantitative research methods while preparing for your final-year dissertation. This is your chance to specialise in an area of real and future interest to you.

How you'll be assessed

Depending on which modules you take, your assessments will include coursework essays, collaborative and individual presentations, seen and unseen examinations, reports, portfolios, essay plans and creative work.

How you'll learn

From lectures and small group seminars at the University of East London's Docklands campus to studying overseas, the range of opportunities to learn on this course could not be more varied.

You’ll have the chance to learn outside the classroom by getting involved in the work of organisations such as British Overseas NGO for Development (BOND). Four of our students recently attended their annual conference as volunteers and social media coordinators.

We’ll provide you with plenty of opportunities to learn beyond the classroom, including guest lectures, networking events, conferences and workshops.

You’ll be taught by renowned experts in their field such as Dr Rob Ahearne, Senior Lecturer in International Development, who has recently published work on the political economy of natural resources in Tanzania.

He’s currently investigating migration across the Tanzania-Mozambique border and how this might be affected by future oil discoveries in the region.

“Courses such as International Development give our students an informed understanding of the way the world is changing,” says Professor Allaine Cerwonka, Dean of the School of Social Sciences. “They have the chance to be part of the debate about that and to gain experience in an area they’re really interested in."

We offer the course on a full-time basis over three years or over four years part-time. What marks it out as different is the ongoing connection between our alumni and our current students. The University has an active International Student Development Society.

Your future career

The range of careers taken up by our recent graduates – from moving into communications roles within the not-for-profit sector to becoming campaign managers in fundraising agencies – is testament to the variety of the modules we offer as well as to the quality of the teaching you’ll enjoy. 

Among our recent alumni, one University of East London graduate is now the charity coordinator for a large restaurant chain. Another is working for the World Health Organisation investigating the impact of the Ebola crisis on reproductive health. 

Our course has made a global impact in terms of the number of graduates who have gained the knowledge, confidence and inspiration to set up their own organisations and make a real difference in developing countries. 

The opportunity to take an optional placement will allow you to build up a network of contacts within a sector. This will be an invaluable source of introductions when it comes to finding a job. 

We also organise events each year to introduce you to development specialists and practitioners, including some of our own alumni. This includes a series of international development guest lectures and an annual global studies student conference.

With our worldwide network of knowledge and support to draw upon, you may wish to use your degree as a springboard for postgraduate study at UEL and take advantage of the many research opportunities we offer.

International Development with NGO management

A Undergraduate Program offered by University of East London .

  • Deadline is Aug 3, 2020.
  • Start Date is Sep 9, 2019.
  • Teaching languages are English.
  • Price $16,290.
  • Duration 3 Years.

Course summary

Are you interested in finding out how social development is affecting the people who live in the world’s poorest countries? Do you want to learn about globalisation and consider its impact on the people of Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean, the Middle East and Europe?  Are you interested in the way NGOs work to address issues of poverty? Do you worry about the value of their work?

This course will give you the answers you seek – and much more. There has never been a more pressing time to study International Development, as globalisation continues to impact some of the world's poorest countries, or the global South, and the reaction to globalisation continues to manifest itself in first world countries in Europe and North America, such as Brexit and the election of the protectionist US President, exacerbated by major humanitarian issues such as the refugee crisis.

Our courses give you the skills and knowledge, such as being able to develop your own ideas and plans for a future development project and learn how to present and fundraise for it, to pursue careers that give ultimate job-satisfaction – working for positive change in the world, such as setting up your own NGO, or to be an informed and critical practitioner.

We don’t just use textbooks, we change daily on the break-neck speed of current affairs, and encourage you to step out of the classroom and study beyond the headlines and what is happening internationally. We are one of very few universities that offer you the chance to gain valuable work experience in an NGO, such as Save the Children UK and Oxfam, in a developing country as a core part of your course.

What you'll learn

By studying International Development, you'll be asking vitally important questions. What is poverty? What is the connection between a country’s economy and the wellbeing of its people? How do issues such as inequality, conflict and faith relate to development? What is globalisation and how does it impact on all of our lives?

Our course gives special emphasis to the lived experience of people in the developing world. In doing so, it challenges the assumption that development is a purely economic phenomenon.

Your third-year work placement in an NGO, which we’ll help you to arrange, will provide you with invaluable experience in the field, whether it’s at the Vitality project in Bangladesh or working for the St Francis Hospice in the UK. You’ll develop the skills that NGOs look for in people they employ.

In addition to studying theory, you’ll learn about real-world issues in modules such as Human Mobility, Forced Migration and Social Change as well as The Politics of Global Powers and Imperialism Now: Economy, State and War.

How you'll be assessed

Depending on which modules you take, your assessments will include coursework essays, collaborative and individual presentations, seen and unseen examinations, reports, portfolios, essay plans and creative work.

How you'll learn

From lectures and small group seminars at UEL’s Docklands campus to working on an NGO project to prevent child trafficking in Nepal, the range of opportunities to learn on this course could not be more varied. Your discussions of gender relations, popular culture and politics in developing countries will make real sense when you begin your work placement, whether it’s on the Udayan Care project in India, with Kanaama Interactive in Uganda or with the Asian Women Lone Parents Association in London.  

Our students have also undertaken placements relating to money mentoring and finance in Africa, the education of street children in the Democratic Republic of Congo and the health needs of Syrian refugees in Greece.  You’ll also have opportunities to learn beyond the classroom by getting involved in the work of organisations such as British Overseas NGO for Development (BOND). Four of our students recently attended their annual conference as volunteers and social media coordinators. 

You’ll be taught by renowned experts in their field such as Dr Meera Tiwari, who helped 2005 graduate Firoz Patel found the charity Global Development Links (now Childreach International) while he was still an undergraduate on the course. Dr Tiwari is on the charity’s Board of Trustees - an example of how the course teaching is intertwined with your student placement and later career development.

Your future career

Having undertaken a work placement in an NGO, you’ll have the knowledge and hands-on experience that employers seek. While there is no pressure on you to know your career path when you start the course, a range of exciting options will be open to you when you graduate.

From moving into communications within the not-for-profit sector to becoming a campaign in fundraising agencies, our graduates have taken on a variety of roles in the UK and abroad.

Others have established NGOs and charities of their own, including the Children of Congo Foundation, which provides education for street children, and the Otra Cosa Network, which supports communities in northern Peru through life-changing, affordable volunteering.

Your placement will give you the opportunity to meet and impress professionals in the field. You’ll develop an invaluable network of contacts who will have seen your work at close quarters. Many of the students on this course find their first job after graduation through this route. We organise events each year to introduce you to development specialists and practitioners, including from our own alumni.

You may also choose to continue your studies at the University of East London by moving on to one of our postgraduate courses, which also offer the opportunity to conduct research in the field.

“There is no degree for being an NGO fundraiser but if you do International Development with NGO Management and you do your internship in an NGO, you end up with all this great experience in fundraising and you’ll have a very different place in the job market,” says Professor Allaine Cerwonka, Dean of UEL’s School of Social Sciences.

Journalism

A Undergraduate Program offered by University of East London .

  • Deadline is Aug 3, 2020.
  • Start Date is Sep 9, 2019.
  • Teaching languages are English.
  • Price $16,290.
  • Duration 3 Years.

Course summary

On our increasingly well-regarded journalism course we develop enquiring minds so that you will be the ones to report tomorrow’s stories and find the answers to today’s questions.

If you want to become a journalist and explore what journalism is and where it’s heading, this is the perfect course for you.

Guided by staff with 100 years of combined journalistic expertise between them, you’ll be given a practical grounding in print, radio, photo and online journalism.

You’ll learn how to produce authoritative, incisive and imaginative work. As you search for the inside track on the vibrant, important living story that is east London, you’ll find no better place to practice your journalistic skills.

You’ll look at the problems, pitfalls and potential for today’s journalism, studying its past and debating its future.

We’re hosting a major annual conference that examines the future of journalism. Alongside papers from senior media figures, our students’ work will feature at the conference’s heart.

If you don’t meet the entry requirements for a BA, you can study this course as an ‘extended’ four-year course. You'll begin with a foundation year which prepares you for a successful transition to the BA degree.

What you'll learn

Our three-year course offers the complete journalistic education, covering a broad spectrum of subjects.

Sometimes you may find yourself as the working journalist, maybe on one of our own student publications or perhaps on a work placement assignment at a national media organisation.

At other times, you’ll be the entrepreneur, devising original stories and formulating ideas with business potential before pitching them to commissioning editors.

Or you could be the academic, researching subjects such as the history of journalism, its new role in society, media law, ethics and regulation.

You can choose ‘portfolio’ modules from which you gain credits towards your degree by getting your journalistic work published.

For your major project work, you can work on the development of a new publication, from the idea stage all the way through to its production - and, of course, the launch party! Or, instead, you could originate and complete a major academic research project of your choice.

How you'll be assessed

 

At the end of the first term you'll be examined in writing techniques. Subsequent learning is assessed largely through coursework.

We teach writing, sub-editing and commissioning in copy clinics and editorial meetings with members of staff. On some practical modules, you'll be required to talk about your assignments in a meeting or 'viva' with academic staff and media professionals.

Year two and three students who have opted to take portfolio modules receive academic credit for work published outside the University.

In your third year, you'll carry out an audit - a rigorous, commercial assessment of a magazine. You'll also undertake a dissertation based on one-to-one supervision with an academic expert.

How you'll learn

Based in our well-resourced campus newsroom, our course operates an editorial system in which student journalists learn by working with staff editors.

After you’ve completed basic training, your teachers will send you out on reporting assignments in east London. In the United States, they dubbed this the ‘teaching hospital’ model. On our UEL courses, though, we were doing this almost before there was a name for it.

Our staff have vast experience both in teaching and reporting - and they don’t mind being called ‘hackademics’. All have worked as professional journalists - and most of them still do. One of them will act as your supportive personal tutor.

Some of our students have had work placements at newspapers such as the Daily Mail and The Times. Everyone, though, gets the feel for a busy news operation by putting together our acclaimed independent online news magazine,  http://risingeast.co.uk

With news stories, features, interviews, trenchant comment and videos, the confident voice of our student journalists rings through the website. Between September and December 2014, they produced as many as 200 stories. 

“East London is a news story of international significance,” says Course Leader Dr Andrew Calcutt. “Our students are giving the area the sort of coverage we think it deserves.”

Your future career

We're determined to prepare you in the best way possible for a career in journalism after your studies.

Journalism is, of course, a competitive world to enter. You have a head start at UEL, though, thanks to teachers with exceptional contacts who know exactly what newspapers, radio stations and other media outlets are looking for.

Course summary

Our LLB (Hons) Law course is a qualifying law degree, forming an essential part of the training you need to become a barrister or a solicitor.

The course will equip you with a broad understanding of key legal principles and institutions within the political, social, economic and cultural context in which the law operates.

You’ll learn how the law is made and administered and explore the inter-relationships between the law, individuals and society.

We give you the opportunity to build on this knowledge with a wide choice of 16 optional modules in your final year. And you’ll also have the opportunity to gain valuable experience in our acclaimed community Legal Advice Centre, working with local solicitors to provide a law clinic for the general public.

This course meets all the requirements of the Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Bar Standards Board. It also gives a fast track to achieve qualifications as a legal executive or for the insurance and financial services industries.

You’ll also have the chance to spend a term at one of our partner institutions in Holland, France or Germany.

What you'll learn

As this is a qualifying law degree, you can expect to learn the fundamentals of the profession from day one.

The compulsory modules in your first two years include an introduction to legal skills and methods, and insights into the key specialist areas of the subject. These include contract, land, criminal, human rights, constitutional and administrative law.

In your final year, you’ll need to complete one compulsory module on equity and trusts, but will then be able to choose from a wide range of options. These include Intellectual Property Law, Banking Law, Family Law, Commercial Law, Client Practice and Civil and Criminal Litigation.

If you take these last two options, you can gain the Higher Diploma in Paralegal Practice in addition to your degree.

You’ll be encouraged to ‘learn by doing’ by volunteering for the University’s much-admired Legal Advice Centre in Stratford and through work placements with local law firms.

How you'll be assessed

 

We’ll assess you with a 50-50 mix of coursework and exams. Coursework includes essays, a reflective diary, oral presentations, practical exercises and answering hypothetical problem questions. Throughout the course you’ll be given plenty of feedback to help you improve.

If you choose the final-year project option, you’ll conduct independent research on a legal topic of your choice and complete a 7,500-word dissertation.

How you'll learn

Teaching methods vary throughout the course but you’ll find them all stimulating and challenging. You’ll learn through lectures, seminars, tutorials, workshops and individual supervision, supported by digital materials, notes and handbooks.

You’ll also have the chance to learn through moots and mock trials in our own chambers.

You’ll be expected to carry out your own independent study to build on your learning, ensuring you develop valuable research skills and get out of the course what you put in. Our lecturers have strong links with the legal profession, so you’ll also have plenty of opportunities to learn outside of the lecture theatre and seminar room. If you play an active role throughout the course, joining in with debates and attending guest talks, conferences and events, you’ll reap the rewards.

Many of our students take the chance to help local people with real legal problems in our Legal Advice Centre, where practising solicitors give up their time to supervise and support you. This much-admired law clinic is a shining example of civic engagement in action – taking learning out of the classroom and, at the same, making a real difference to society. It’s highly popular with our students as well as the public, and the experience will give you a taste of what being a legal professional is all about.

Your future career

Our Law course equips you with skills and knowledge that are in high demand from employers in a variety of fields.

Many of our students go on to enjoy successful careers as lawyers after completing their legal studies through the Legal Practice Course (LPC) and obtaining a training contract with a law firm.

Others become barristers, going on to take the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) and then obtaining Pupillage in barristers’ chambers. This can lead to a tenancy as a self-employed barrister, or you can practise as an employed barrister.

Whether or not you decide to pursue a career as a solicitor or barrister, you’ll learn skills and develop qualities that appeal to employers in a variety of sectors. These include valuable communication skills such as writing, speaking and presenting, and the ability to analyse and evaluate information.

For the international relations part of the course, we’ll give you a solid introduction to the subject in your first year. You’ll then take one international relations module in each of your second and third years.

What you'll learn

This course will give you a comprehensive understanding of the law and its place in the criminal justice system.

Studying at university is more demanding than school or college. Outside formal teaching times you’ll need to be motivated to earn your degree by undertaking a lot of independent study.

We organise guest lectures, conferences and other events, giving you the chance to enhance your learning and build a professional network. If you take advantage of these activities and play an active role in student societies, you’ll find that the more you put in, the more you get out.

You’ll be encouraged to volunteer or do work experience to give you new experiences and learn in ways that academic study alone can’t give you.

Many law students volunteer at our highly popular community Legal Advice Centre, working alongside solicitors to give advice to local residents on real legal problems.

Many of our students go on to enjoy successful careers as solicitors after completing their legal studies through the Legal Practice Course (LPC) and obtaining a training contract with a law firm.

If you take the option of the one-year work placement, you’ll be in a good position to go on to full-time employment in the same organisation, as many of our graduates have done in the past.

 

The thorough grounding you’ll receive in physiology and the transferable skills you’ll learn will open up all sorts of career avenues to you, as Isaac Mwita found.

This 2012 graduate reckons the practical knowledge he acquired in investigating the workings of the human respiratory system during our course was largely responsible for securing him a job as a clinical physiologist in the lung function unit of London’s Royal Brompton Hospital.

Our students have gone into a variety of jobs in clinical physiology, medicine, radiography, physiotherapy and teaching. In addition, the industrial and pharmaceutical industries are always on the look-out for physiologists.

You might decide to study for a further degree in a related subject, either an MSc or PhD, or embark on a research career in the biological or medical fields. There’s always the possibility that, with further study, you could become a doctor or dentist.
