Unit for the Enhancement of Learning & Teaching

About us

The Unit for the Enhancement of Learning and Teaching (UELT) was identified as an area of sector-wide good practice by strengthening the University's ability to support both staff and students (QAA Institutional Audit, 2004 and 2008) based on the services delivered by its four teams.
