International students

Information for applicants from Poland

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 131 students from Poland 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.

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!
