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 70 students from Egypt 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 Egypt 2 times per year, details of our next visit can be found on these pages.
