A new University campus in Stratford will hold it’s first open day of Autumn, giving residents and potential students a chance to see the new facilities.

The £33 million new building at University Square Stratford opened in September and is the newest addition to the University of East London (UEL).

The open day event will be held on October 19 from 12 noon to 4pm, when visitors can also explore UEL’s Docklands campus.

Students and parents will have the opportunity to find out more about the range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses available and talk to representatives of the University’s schools.

There will also be walking tours throughout the day showcasing the on-campus accomodation and the newly opened library, as well as talks on student finance, electronic engineering and other topics.

Catherine Downes, director of corporate marketing at UEL, said: “Open days are a great insight into modern university life. There is nothing quite like seeing and experiencing the amazing facilities we now have here.

“I would encourage prospective students to visit both campuses and find out more about the courses we offer, talk with our academics and tour our amazing facilities.
