UEL has a series of weekend day trips so you get the chance to see Britain too. Each year, we organise day trips to famous places and attractions. It’s a great way to learn more about the country and a chance to make new friends. They’re not just for international students – they’re for UK students too.
For Term 2 & Term 3 please see scheduled Trips:
