Most inclusive Russell Group university
An undergraduate degree from Queen Mary opens a door to a world of possibilities. We teach subjects across the full spectrum of academic disciplines – including ones you wouldn’t usually expect to find at a Russell Group university.
Many of our degrees are interdisciplinary and elements are co-created with students. This ensures you emerge ready to thrive in response to the complex nature of the major challenges the world faces today.
Whether you live and study at our Mile End or Whitechapel campuses in London’s dynamic East End, or at Charterhouse Square, around the corner from the cultural hub of the Barbican, you’ll benefit from our excellent teaching and facilities and be challenged to make the most of your talents and abilities.
What I love about Queen Mary is its inclusivity. It's the only campus-based Russell Group university in London, so there's a sense of belonging and community.— John Tan Yu Choong, Business Management BSc

First UK university to become a Living Wage employer
Throughout our history, social justice and equality have been central to our mission. From our origins in four historic institutions, including Westfield College, which promoted women’s education, St Bartholomew’s Hospital Medical College, which gave medical treatment to London’s poor, and the People’s Palace, which brought education and recreation to the East End, social justice is in our DNA.
It continues to this day: our research helped to underpin the national campaign for a real Living Wage. In 2006, we became the first UK university to become a Living Wage employer. Queen Mary became a founding partner of the Living Wage Foundation in 2011, which continues to campaign for a Living Wage and recognises those employers who pay their staff a wage that meets the cost of living rather than the Government minimum. By 2014, the Living Wage initiative had lifted more than 120,000 employees and their families out of working poverty.
We also continue to seek out students from backgrounds that are currently under-represented at universities like ours.
