Information for applicants from Belgium

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 32 students from Belgium studying at Queen Mary who are enrolled on a range of degree programmes at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

Queen Mary's International Office staff visit Belgium, details of our next visit can be found on these pages.

Jolien Bradt

LLM Banking and Finance

"Queen Mary is a highly ranked university and is well known for its School of Law and LLM course.  I decided I wanted to study the course to develop my knowledge in banking and finance law plus I felt it would help my CV.

I have been impressed with the teaching and supervising. The teachers give good advice about how to approach the exams and are always available to talk to.

Being in London has been a great experience as there are so many opportunities to study, research and relax in the city. London is a really vibrant city and there is always something going on so you can never be bored!"
