Queen Mary University of London was established in 1785 and is a leading research-intensive university with a difference – one that opens the doors of opportunity to anyone and supporting students to succeed.
With schools split across five campuses in central and east London, students are able to select from an exceptionally broad range of subjects across three main faculties, including the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, Faculty of Science and Engineering, and Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry.
Queen Mary is a member of the Russell Group of universities in the UK, which means the university is committed to outstanding research and teaching.
In the 2023 Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings, Queen Mary were ranked 16 in the UK, and 124 globally.
Queen Mary won the ‘University of the Year’ award at the sixth annual UK Social Mobility Awards in 2022.
Queen Mary boasts a hugely diverse student population, with over 33,000 students on degree programmes, drawn from more than 170 nationalities, 75 per cent of which are from BAME backgrounds.
The award-winning careers services on offer at the institution provides students with the opportunity to book one-to-one careers appointments with trained advisors, a choice of over 2,000 work experience opportunities, and the opportunities to attend events to meet employers from across the UK.
The Student Union offers an enriching student experience outside of classrooms with over 300 student societies and 60 sports clubs.
Queen Mary is home to one of the largest self-contained student campuses in central London. The largest campus in Mile End has everything a student may need while studying at Queen Mary, from lecture theatres and laboratories to a 24-hour library. The campus also has a variety of shops, restaurants, a bar, a gym, and student accommodation on-site. All facilities are within five-minute walk away from each other, making students’ lives easy.
You can take a virtual campus tour from the comfort of your home or explore the campus on your own via Queen Mary 360° videos on the university’s website.
