Queen Mary, University of London
Queen Mary University of London is one of the UK's leading research-focused higher education institutions. With around 17,840 students, 4,000 staff and an annual research income of £100m, we are one of the biggest University of London colleges.
We teach and research across a wide range of subjects in the humanities, social sciences, law, medicine and dentistry, and science and engineering. Based in a creative and culturally diverse area of east London, we are the only London university able to offer a completely integrated residential campus, providing an oasis of calm in a busy city for our staff and students.
Queen Mary has made a strategic commitment to the highest quality of research. We have invested in this principle by systematically recruiting the best academics in their disciplines from around the world. The results of the most recent national assessment of research – the Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014) – have confirmed our place in the very top group of research-led universities in the UK. Overall we were ranked 9th in the UK among multi-faculty universities and 5th in the UK for the percentage of our 3* and 4* research outputs.
Queen Mary is one of 24 leading UK universities represented by the Russell Group, that are committed to maintaining the very best research, an outstanding teaching and learning experience, excellent graduate employability, and unrivalled links with business and the public sector.
Queen Mary offers outstanding students a stimulating, supportive, and high-quality learning experience, with teaching inspired by our world-leading research. We have also invested more than £250m in new facilities over the last fifteen years to offer our students an exceptional learning environment. This is reflected in our consistently high levels of student satisfaction. In the most recent National Student Survey (NSS 2015), 88 per cent of our undergraduates expressed 'overall satisfaction' with their time here.

Life in London
With festivals, museums and galleries, royal parks, restaurants and nightlife, it is no surprise that London is one of the most popular cities in the world to study, live and work. QMUL is located in the heart of the London’s east end, a culturally vibrant area with a rich history, close to the city’s financial district in Canary Wharf, and to the green spaces of the Victoria Park, the 2012 Olympic Park, and Epping Forest. Beyond the city, London’s fantastic transport links also make it the perfect base for exploring the rest of the UK and Europe.
