Student profiles and Alumni ambassadors

Vanessa Eliott
MA English Studies: English Literature
Australia

I have really loved my time at Queen Mary. In particular I have really appreciated the small classes which have allowed me to really get under the skin of the subjects I have been taking.

The transport system can be quite confusing at first but once you do it a few times, you find your way and I have really enjoyed the fast paced life that London has to offer.
I am not ready to go home, so I have decided to stay and do my Masters!
