GO Universities in East London

Universities in East London Although it's the smallest of the regions in England, London has a high concentration of campuses spread across the city and east London plays host to a few of the student centres.

Probably the most prominent university in the east of the capital is the University of East London [map] with campuses in Stratford, Docklands and Barking.

The University brought together a number of local polytechnics to create the University of East London in 1992 and now this university alone has more than 16,000 students studying subjects as diverse as architecture, business and social studies. Famous alumni include Trevor Brooking, TV pundit and West Ham Stalwart, film director Ken Russell and Prime minister of the Dominican Republic.

Also bringing together a number of colleges to form one centre of education is the Queen Mary College [map] (QMC). In combining four college institutions, Queen Mary College makes use of some of the historic buildings of the capital, the oldest having been built in 1887.

The QMC is home to Barts & The London School of Medicine & Dentistry [map], a major centre of research and teaching for medical and dental subjects, but also covers subjects including English and drama, mathematical sciences and electronic engineering.

Students at Queen Mary College are part of the Britain’s largest university, the University of London [map] (UOL). Founded in 1829 the university was the first college outside of Oxford and Cambridge, and the first to admit students regardless of age, race or religion, setting the standard for its international flavour. Today the University has over 90,000 students at campuses across the capital.
