International students

Information for students from Malta

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

Brexit update:

The UK government has guaranteed that EU students starting a degree in 2019-20 will continue to be eligible for ‘home fee status’ for the duration of their studies in England and Wales.

It means that:

  • EU students will pay the same fees as UK students for all levels of study.
  • EU students will be able to apply for funding support for the duration of their studies at Queen Mary.

Further information can be found on the UK Department of Education’s website.
