Queen Mary, University of London

Course Introduction

At Queen Mary, it is all about a combination of location, high'quality teaching and, ultimately, our people. Politically, London is where all the action takes place' firmly plugged in to a globalised, networked world. Not only are the nation's Parliament, its parties and its think'tanks headquartered here in the capital, but so are its high'profile international organisations and its economic powerhouses. At Queen Mary, we exploit our location to the full, inviting a range of high'profile speakers to the campus, some to talk to the Mile End Group, a forum for the exchange of ideas on government, others to address New Turn, our student'run politics society. We are also expanding our students' contacts with Westminster, Whitehall and the Third Sector. We care about helping you interact with the real world as well as ensuring you get great teaching, based on lectures, seminars and workshops which are assessed by a combination of coursework, exams and a final'year dissertation. We are pleased to see that in the most recent National Student Survey, 88 per cent of our students were satisfied the quality of their teaching and that four of our staff were nominated this year for by students. Our staff not only care about teaching, but are also active, critical researchers, working in a School that was highly rated in the most recent Research Assessment Exercise and whose diverse interests are reflected in the wide choice of modules available to students.
