Why Queen Mary, University of London?

Queen Mary is one of the largest colleges of the internationally-recognised University of London. Queen Mary students rank the university as the no.1 university in London for overall satisfaction (National Student Survey 2015) and Queen Mary is proud to be listed among the top 100 universities in the world (THE World University 2015-16).

The university offers the choice of more than 700 study programmes (including part-time options for postgraduate) and is sought out by students across the world for specialisms in subjects across medicine and dentistry, science and engineering, and humanities and social sciences. Once they graduate, Queen Mary students are equally sought after by employers and they feature in the top 10 in the UK for graduate starting salaries (The Times and Sunday Times University League Table 2016).

Queen Mary has the only self-contained residential campus in the capital located between the financial powerhouse of the City of London, the inspiring Olympic Park at Stratford and digitally innovative Tech City at Shoreditch. Becoming a part of QMUL will place you in a prime position to explore not only what London has to offer, but the capital’s transport connections offer a great opportunity to explore Europe and beyond.

International Students

Of QMUL’s 20,000 students, more than a third are from outside the UK. Students and staff come from more than 150 countries so this makes for a truly cosmopolitan environment that is welcoming to students from all over the world. In fact, Queen Mary was named in the top 25 most internationally diverse universities in the world in Times Higher Education (2016).

There is lots of support in place at Queen Mary to help international students feel welcome and at home: special welcome events and activities, English language and study workshops throughout their degree, and the opportunity to apply for bursaries and scholarships. Events during the university’s annual International Week celebrate the world cultures of everyone who is a part of Queen Mary.

The Students’ Union at the Mile End campus, meanwhile, brings students together from across the university and provides a whole host of facilities including a café, bars, shop, sports facilities and clubs. Medicine and dentistry students become members of Barts and The London Students’ Association based at the Whitechapel campus. Queen Mary’s Students’ Union is one of the most active unions in the University of London and forms a focal point of the students’ social life in the capital. There are also some 40 cultural groups in amongst the union’s 200 sports clubs and societies.

As an international student, you will be given priority for accommodation on or around campus as long as you apply before the deadline. Plus, students don’t have to move out of their accommodation during the Christmas and Easter vacations. Visit the Queen Mary website for more information.

Queen Mary’s Careers and Enterprise team offers a range of support services for international students such as advice about different careers, employers and postgraduate study in the UK. Queen Mary graduates are consistently in the top 10 for starting salaries in the UK and the university is also ranked highly for student employability (The Guardian).

My experience at Queen Mary and the people I met there have prepared me well for life after graduation and I’m always grateful for the support I received.”
