Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) has a long and illustrious history dating back to 1785, with the establishment of the London Hospital Medical College - England’s first medical school. The university is a member of the University of London and is also a member of the prestigious Russell Group.
QMUL is often ranked as one of the top 10 universities in the UK and the top 10% of universities in the world. It is renowned for its world-leading research, ranking 5th in the UK for the percentage of 3* and 4* research outputs (REF 2014). Nine former QMUL staff and students have won Nobel prizes.
QMUL is also one of the most diverse of all the Russell Group universities. From its formative years, right through to today, inclusion has been at the forefront of the university’s philosophy and the university actively recruits students from under-represented backgrounds. Today, QMUL is home to over 28,000 students from over 160 nationalities, studying across the university’s campuses in London, Europe, and Asia. Of the undergraduate students based on the university’s London campuses, 90% are from state schools and 70% are BAME students.
The university offers over 130 undergraduate courses in a wide variety of disciplines, delivered through three faculties: Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences; Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry; and Faculty of Science and Engineering. Many courses have flexible module options, allowing students to specialise within their chosen subject and many courses offer the option to spend a year in industry or studying abroad; allowing students to gain valuable experience that could kick-start their careers. Students studying at QMUL have access to world-class study facilities and receive a superior level of support, both academic and personal. They are also given plenty of opportunities to meet new people, make a difference to their community, and develop new transferable skills.
Queen Mary University of London students on Whatuni say:
“I love studying here. There is a really strong sense of community with lots of support from staff and peers. The lectures are well organised and structured! And highly enjoyable I would recommend this uni to a friend for sure.”
“Despite Covid, I’m extremely happy with my quality of teaching — my main concern for my university experience! My department adapted very well to online teaching, and also encouraged collaboration/interaction via writing retreats and group calls. I’d highly recommend Queen Mary for their English course, as there are so many module choices to choose from. I also had the option of choosing a module from an appropriate alternative department.”
“I really enjoy my time at my uni. However, I would have preferred having face to face teaching but I know they tried to make the best they could to help all of the students so I’m very grateful and I can’t wait for my second year!”
