International students

Information for students from Egypt

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

Mohanad is taking a break from his role as a public prosecutor in Cairo to take the LLM Public International Law. He loves the flexibility of the course with none of the 54 modules being compulsory. This has given him the freedom to explore completely new areas of law whilst still focusing on his specialism.

His favourite things about Queen Mary are the large campus, the 24h access to the library and the Graduate Centre reading rooms, and the access to all the other University of London libraries, including the IALS (the biggest law library in London). MohaNad has also been enjoying all the free activities that London has to offer, including the royal parks and the world-famous museums.
