My name is Dominika and I'm from Gdynia, Poland. I graduated from Queen Mary in summer 2013 with a degree in English and European Law, which included a year abroad in Belgium.
I had a fantastic time here at Queen Mary. The vibrant campus, friendly atmosphere and meeting amazing people from all over the world made my time here unforgettable. At the same time, there is also a strong Polish presence on campus and an active Polish Society. Being located in London and having easy access to everything the city has to offer further adds to the student experience.
The quality of teaching is excellent. The lecturers and tutors are experts in their areas, committed to teaching and supportive. There are also many opportunities to put your newly acquired skills into practice. Studying at Queen Mary and making good use of these opportunities has definitely increased my employability significantly.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about studying at Queen Mary or would like to find out more about life here as a Polish student. I will be happy to reply!
