UEL Wins Outstanding International Strategy at Times Higher Education Awards

The University of East London won the ‘Outstanding International Strategy Award’ at The Times Higher Education Leadership and Management Awards 2012, which took place at the Grosvenor House Hotel in Park Lane.
The ceremony celebrated the talented and dedicated staff working to steer universities and colleges through a time of unprecedented change. UEL beat off stiff competition from the University of Birmingham, City University London, De Montfort University, the University of Exeter and the University of Nottingham to be crowned top of their category.

The University was commended on its Global Reach initiative, which is central to the university-wide Transformation for Excellence strategy. The judges were impressed by the number of ‘distinct threads’ running through the strategy, with a range of university schools and services fully involved. Judges were also impressed by 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. The highly successful introduction of languages to the curriculum after a nine-year absence was also praised.

Vice Chancellor, Professor Patrick McGhee, said, “The great thing about our Global Reach strategy is its inclusivity. Our aim is to provide a truly international study experience to students on all UEL programmes whether they are studying in East London or at our newly launched Cyprus campus. We are equally proud of the experience provided for those studying UEL programmes across our tremendous partner institution network which includes not only the BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India and China) countries but other parts of the world where the UEL brand is well known such as Malaysia, Greece, Singapore and Vietnam.”
