Queen Mary University of London is a global leading university, based in London, England. Its history goes back to 1785 to the foundation of England’s first medical school at the Royal London Hospital. Today, Queen Mary is a Russel Group university that operates across 5 campuses in London and Europe (Paris, Piraeus, Malta) and Asia (China and Singapore). It is the first institution ever that’s been awarded the Engage Watermark Gold Award for excellence in public engagement. The university offers its students an international experience. The school has a unique approach to admitting students onto its programmes. It provides opportunities to individuals who have the talent and potential regardless of their background. 4000 members of staff and over 25000 students are part of Queen Mary. Among those are foreign students (9% are from the EU and 35% are from non-EU overseas countries) from 162 nationalities.

Due to its international partnerships, graduates are ready for a global career upon graduation.
I am going into my final year at QM as a psychology undergraduate. So far I have really enjoyed my time here and did not realise how quickly the 2yrs went by. The Uni provides a variety of options for activities such as sports, clubs, etc. Joining one will really enhance your experience here at QM. The lecturers are also very supportive and provide a fun learning atmosphere.View more
I liked Queen Mary for its diversity and the fact that it was within Central London. I liked that it had a lot of societies to join, which allowed me to meet new people and the lecturers there are really friendly and super helpful. QMUL is a Russell Group university which means more opportunities and people on campus are very friendly and welcoming. I think it’s a lovely place to go uni there and highly recommend it!View more
As an international student, QMUL is super welcoming the teachers and student body make university feel like home. Being a Russel Group university the law teaching faculty is exceptional. It is the only university in London which has a booming campus life. The teaching staff is very understanding and makes it a point to hear out the students and take their opinion while making decisions.View more
QMUL is a university in the Eastern part of London with great facilities at that time when I was graduating and many civil projects in place to increase existing facilities. All the studies took place on one campus and dormitories were on campus or just across the road outside the campus. During my studies, I made a lot of friends that left a lot of nice moments together to remember.View more
I didn’t stay in the accommodation so can’t comment on that.
Facilities were good, I had all that I feel I needed to complete my work. There was generally always library space/ computer access in many different buildings to use.
I felt that some of the lecturers were not hard-working enough or considering the fact that many students come from backgrounds where English isn’t a first language. Eg. We had a module called banking law and the lecturer NOT even once gave us a model answer for how to write an essay style answer for our exams even though we begged for him to do this as a guide/ structure to help us to know what he is looking for in an essay style answer. That is just an example of what I mean by not hard-working/ considerate.
One of my modules in the first semester for my masters was very tough as I came from an unrelated undergraduate degree background. I learnt from the external teacher of that course that there is much pre-requisite knowledge that would have enabled me to do well and understand terminology and basics before starting the module but we had never been told this by the university we were thrown in at the deep end without warning (those with a non-finance background).
I think the careers department are great. So many useful resources such as access to accounts that help you practice employer style psychometric tests, meetings with advisors, continuous emails with career opportunities, continuous career fairs and events throughout the terms I can’t fault them with that.
This is my experience in the School of economics and finance and specifically investment banking masters course. It could be different within another department.
The campus has about 5 different sights to eat (one is a full-on student diner/ restaurant, one is 2 are cafes, and 1 is within the library. This is great as I’ve been to a university where there were only like 2.
The location Of the campus is close to 2 train stations 3-5 mins for one and 8-10mins for the other station which is helpful when running late for class or going home late at night! What would make it more ideal is if there was a close shopping centre or a collection of stores close by e.g. Superdrug, Boots or a Greggs, Mc Donald’s just more shops around would make it better.View more
I enjoyed my university experience at Queen Mary largely due to my lecturers who were extremely passionate about their fields which showed in seminars and lectures. Lecturers, tutors and staff members were always so supportive and on hand to answer questions about academics, student welfare and wellbeing and always directed students to further help if needed!View more
I enjoy my university due to the collaboration between the students and lecturers. They listen and provide detailed learning and extra resources so you’re not only scraping the surface but rather the entire spectrum of an argument.
The challenge of stating an argument and providing a clear narrative to the set coursework was challenging due to the high standard nature of the work required.
The accessibility of resources and development of ideas of not only my course of film but instead the politics and information supplied alongside the details of a film. I was not only given one view to understand but many and not only from a film perspective but from diverse areas of study.
The professors for biomed and admin staff are very good, handle everything on time and deliver good quality teaching. The facilities are good too and it is the only campus based university in London so all your classes and accommodation are in the same place which is very convenient. Good social life and academics.View more
This is the university which offers diverse courses, and that offers partial scholarships on the basis of essay writing. From Law, Business and Engineering this university offers diverse courses and offers professors who are very knowledgeable and helpful. This university has the most international diversification from any university in the UK.View more
The Queen Mary University of London is one of the best universities in London which comes under the Russell group. They have excellent professors, Libraries, and facilities that a student should experience. They also have great campuses. The courses are amazing, have wide modules in it which give great insight into the course. I have experienced amazing Student life as they support students in every manner, whether it’s about their submissions or career opportunities. They keep on motivating students to participate in various activities or join different societies. So, one should definitely go for QMUL without thinking twice as it will give you great exposure and experience to study abroad.View more
