UEL wins The Times international award
The University of East London (UEL) has been awarded for keeping in touch with all corners of the globe.
The institution walked away with the Outstanding International Strategy gong at The Times Higher Education Leadership and Management Awards at the Grosvenor House Hotel in Park Lane, London.
The UEL beat off stiff competition from the likes of University of Birmingham and the University of Exeter.
The judges were impressed by the number of ‘distinct threads’ running through its global reach strategy, with a range of university schools and services fully involved.
They also noted the Going Global Bursary scheme, a key element of Global Reach, providing UK based students the chance to travel, linked to their studies, whether for a few days or a whole semester.
