My face shows how happy one can be as a Queen Mary University of London graduate!

I obtained the LL.M. in International Business Law in 2013 and I was awarded School of Law prize for the 'Best Student 2012-13 specialising in International Business Law'.

Queen Mary constantly proves its high level of commitment towards its students. Both the academics and administrative staff are always ready to help students. The structure of the modules is designed to fulfil every students’ need – it is flexible and up to date. My personal experience was amazing! The modules I chose were taught by both high profile academics and professionals of top law firms, thus enabling me to get a thorough knowledge of the relevant legal issues. Queen Mary students receive the latest updates regarding the events in the city relevant to their areas of interest and so they get the most out of London as well.

Although the balance of study and social life in London may sound difficult to achieve, it is not. Living in London and sharing the experience with all the wonderful people you come across during your studies is unique. You will learn how to develop your organization skills so you can balance academic and personal life. By studying at Queen Mary and living in London you have the very best of choice… so seize the day!

I am at your disposal if you have any questions about what it is like to live and study at QMUL.

 

Andriani Kalintiri
PhD in Law

 

 

Before joining Queen Mary I studied an LLB at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens and an LLM at the University of Cambridge. I chose to study in the UK because of the country’s great legal tradition in commercial law and the quality of its academic institutions. The reason to undertake postgraduate study was my desire to expand my knowledge in the field of commercial law in general and competition law in specific and my ambition to learn how to think critically and do academic research.

I could not be more satisfied with the standard of my supervision at Queen Mary. My supervisors are always willing to help me with any issue, either strictly related to my PhD, providing me with thorough feedback, or concerning participation in conferences or speeches in the field of my research. The thing I most enjoy about my course is the interaction with persons that have similar academic interests and the following exchange of ideas.

The main advantage of the Queen Mary campus is that it is like a small town. It has everything you may want, all the facilities are close and you get the feeling of truly being part of a vibrant community. I am very happy with the available facilities and especially the IT resources. Wherever you are, you can always find a computer and have access to the internet. Moreover, the library staff are amazing and always there to help you find what you are looking for, and order or even buy the book you really need to read, but cannot find anywhere else.

London is -among other things- the perfect city to study and live. There are so many great facilities and you can literally have access to anything you may need, while on the other hand, there are always new places to discover.

Studying in London is a fantastic experience. There are lots of museums to visit and social events taking place. It is a city which never sleeps and I loved being part of it. Having completed my studies at undergraduate level in the Economic University of Piraues I wanted to study at a UK university with great a reputation and facilities. I also wanted to speak English fluently and I knew that living for a year in the UK would provide me with this opportunity.

I received lots of support from Queen Mary when I first arrived. The university welcome week included plenty of seminars regarding essential issues. For instance, there were classes regarding our safety in London, registering with a doctor, train stations that were close by and classes for improving English language. From the moment that I arrived, members of staff were happy to help with questions regarding classes or accommodation issues. I have always felt part of Queen Mary and I appreciate the support that I received.

LLB

Arriving in a new country can be challenging. Queen Mary, however, made things easier. I was given information on how to travel around London and how to deal with my finances. Because of the campus based facilities it offers, Queen Mary is an amazing place to make friends from different areas of studies. Mile end is also a fast growing area, and there have recently been many new developments making it a very vibrant place to live.

Queen Mary is a prestigious university and one of the top ranked UK universities for Law. The teaching hours are flexible, and the academic staff are very passionate about what they do. All the law modules are taught at Mile End so there is no need for time-consuming travelling, and there are also plenty of places to spend your free time. There is always something going on, and there is always something keeping you busy!

Scholarships and Funding

There are a number of scholarships and funding options available for students wishing to pursue their studies at Queen Mary including our, International Mathematical Sciences Excellence Awards, School of Law scholarships, School of Law Undergraduate Bursaries and School of Economics and Finance scholarships.

Undergraduate tuition fees for EU students are currently £9000 per academic year. Tuition fees are not paid until a student officially enrols. EU students have the option to take out a Tuition Fee Loan from the UK Government. The fee is paid directly to the university on the student’s behalf and is administered by Student Finance England. Students can borrow the full fee, part of the fee or none of the fee each year of their study. You will pay back the Loan once you have finished studying and are earning over £21,000 a year. You can find out more on how to apply for a Tuition Fee Loan on the GOV.UK website.
