I studied MSc in Aerospace Engineering (2013/14) in the School of Engineering and Materials Science at Queen Mary University of London. I had this opportunity due to the scholarship from CONACYT (Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología) for both tuition fees and living expenses. This has been one of the best life experiences in terms of culture, friends and gaining knowledge on the subject of my choice. Every day was a new episode, a chance to learn new things, experience different weather, taste new food… The student atmosphere on campus was unsurpassable.

QML has excellent facilities, library, lecture rooms and halls of residence. The equipment is modern and the library has a vast collection of books from engineering to arts, which can be borrowed using self-service. The engineering facilities are also well-equipped, with professional staff on standby to provide support. The lecturers are outstanding, always there to help students. Due to the long and solid history of the school, the undergraduate and postgraduates students can find everything they need to secure their own success.

After graduating, I had the opportunity to present my Masters dissertation at the European Parliament in Strasbourg (France), an event organised by CONACYT. I am currently conducting research for aircraft engine propulsion and aerodynamics. I have no doubt that you would enjoy every single day at QML, and I would certainly give a highest recommendation to this wonderful university. If I had the opportunity to study another MSc, I would not hesitate to do it at Queen Mary University of London.


Ana Georgina Alba Betancourt
PhD Law

After qualifying in Mexico and having worked as a Law Clerk, I wanted to pursue my postgraduate studies abroad, since my main interest is in the international business law field. I heard about Queen Mary from one of my colleagues on the Master in Bucerius Law School, Germany, and after doing some research I discovered that Queen Mary is one of the best Universities in the UK, especially in my fields of interest. During my first year, Queen Mary organised two intensive weeks of research seminars at IALS which I found very interesting and helpful. Once a week we also attended a seminar at Queen Mary, which I considered very important, especially at a very early stage of the research, when you don't really know how and where to start your research, or even how to coordinate it with your supervisor.

PhD life can be very lonely, but with the activities that Queen Mary organises, you have the chance to meet up with the other PhD students, whom could be doing something related to your research, which is great for exchanging ideas. I think that interacting with fellow PhD students enriches your own research and I'm very glad that at QM this is encouraged, together with the support of the supervisors.

Scholarships and Funding

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