Information for students from Hungary

Queen Mary University of London has a long history of welcoming students from around the world. Over the years, many thousands of international students have graduated from the university and gone on to pursue successful careers. Today, we are home to students from more than 162 different countries and over 45% of our student body come from outside of the UK. This diversity contributes to a lively and welcoming community which should make you feel comfortable and at home.

We are one of the largest colleges of the University of London and one of the few with fully integrated teaching, research and residential facilities. Our setting provides our students with the benefits of both a large campus environment, and the countless academic and social opportunities provided by London.

There are currently 29 students from Hungary studying at Queen Mary who are enrolled on a range of degree programmes at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

Student profiles and Alumni ambassadors

Julia Bihary
English and European Law LLB

I have always wanted to study Law and chose Queen Mary because it has one of the best Law Schools in the UK.

I enjoy the intellectual challenge that a Law degree offers, the need to read, understand, digest and be able to apply information in a quick and creative way. Studying a degree is very different to being at school and it takes time to get used to the academic expectations at university level. However, this is something that everyone has to go through, and the teachers understand that students may find it difficult to cope during the first few weeks and are very supportive and approachable.

One of the main advantages of Queen Mary over other London universities is its unique campus. Not only does it provide a safe environment for students, it also helps create a close community of students within the university. The library, cafes and restaurants and our own bar and gym on campus all enhance the social life and help create a sense of belonging

Queen Mary is situated in East London and is around 15 minutes by tube to central London. It has great travel connections and it's easy to get around the city. East London is a very vibrant and multicultural area of the city, with Brick Lane, Shoreditch, the Olympic Park and Stratford in the neighbourhood. East London really is one of the best places to live in in London today and I’m able to spend Sunday afternoons at Brick Lane where locals, young artists and students flock the streets, enjoying the vintage markets and street food.
