Season's greetings and Happy New Year from everyone at Queen Mary

Christmas in the Student Village, Queen Mary, University of London

2012 was an incredible year for Queen Mary, and we expect 2013 to be even better!
There's never been a better time to study at Queen Mary. Here's why:

Excellent reputation

  • In 2012, we joined the Russell Group of leading UK universities. As a graduate of a Russell Group university, you’ll be highly prized by graduate employers.
  • We are consistently in the top 10 per cent of universities for graduate starting salaries in the UK (The Sunday Times University Guide).

Inspiring teaching

  • Our academics embrace innovative teaching methods and receive national awards for their teaching. In 2012, Dr Peter Howarth of the School of English and Drama was awarded a National Teaching Fellowship, a highly prestigious award recognising exceptional teaching. This brings the total number awarded to Queen Mary staff to nine, making us the most successful college in the University of London since we joined the scheme in 2006.
  • In the 2012 National Student Survey, 87 per cent of our students said they were satisfied with their time here – the best among the Russell Group universities in London.

World-class research in 2012

League table recognition

Buzzing location

  • The area around our campus is one of the most stimulating in London, just a short walk from Brick Lane, Shoreditch and the Olympic Park, and close to the City and Canary Wharf.
  • From the spring of 2014, you will be able to use the fantastic sports facilities at the Olympic Park, so you can swim in the same pool that Michael Phelps achieved his record haul of Olympic golds.
