      60% are BAME;
      42% are first into Higher Education;
      27% are from households where the annual taxable income is less than £10k

Skills, aspirations and social capital

  • We are a Russell Group institution based in east London, teaching across the full disciplinary spectrum.
  • Our curriculum is constantly changing to broaden the UG experience, build social capital and enhance prospects on graduation, allowing graduates to make a positive societal impact.
  • We were the first Russell Group institution to deliver Degree Apprenticeship programmes and remain at the forefront of this type of delivery.
  • We sponsor two local Multi Academy Trusts, which have both seen rapid improvement in pupil outcomes.
