About Queen Mary University of London

Queen Mary University of London is one of the UK's leading research universities, committed to improving social justice and achieving the previously unthinkable. A Russell Group university based in east London, we teach across the full disciplinary spectrum. With staff and students from over 160 nationalities, we are one of the most diverse higher education institutions in the world.

Queen Mary offers undergraduate and postgraduate degrees across the full disciplinary spectrum, including in subjects that you don’t always find at a Russell Group university.

Queen Mary is a truly global university. We have five campuses at our home in London but also sites in China, Malta and Paris.

Our reformer heritage informs our conviction that great ideas can and should come from anywhere. The outcomes of our research are felt around the world, and are reflected in our excellent teaching.

Queen Mary grew from the great charitable institutions of London's East End, with a history dating back to 1785.
