Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) has five campuses stretching across east and central London, and offers full-time undergraduate programmes as well as a range of postgraduate options. Our history dates back to 1785, with the founding of England’s first medical school at the Royal London Hospital. Our roots can also be traced to the establishment of the People’s Palace in Mile End in 1887, which was designed to bring educational and cultural opportunities to the East End. Three of their campuses are used for undergraduate study; their flagship campus in Mile End, where the majority of the Queen Mary academic schools are housed, and the Whitechapel campus for medicine and dentistry students. Medical students also practise their clinical skills at the West Smithfield campus (St. Bartholomew's Hospital). This East End University is home to 18,081 undergraduate students.
