UEL vice-chancellor and president, Professor Amanda Broderick, said, "This (collaboration) will drive innovative ways of learning, increase the employment-preparedness of our graduates and enhance our research and enterprise capacity."

Located on the Royal Albert Docks campus, the career zone will assist students with graduate careers, provide access to expert advice and specialised learning resources, and offer conference facilities equipped with the latest technology.

The innovation loft will give students hands-on access to cloud technology, expert guidance and opportunities to attend exclusive seminars.
