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.

Student profiles and Alumni ambassadors

Daniel Gasaatura, Rwanda
MSc Finance and Law

Daniel is a Chevening scholar studying on the MSc Finance and Law at Queen Mary. His favourite aspect of the course is the chance to integrate financial and accounting knowledge into his existing legal background. He knows this will make him an especially valuable asset upon returning to Rwanda.

The variety and flexibility of course modules is another big positive for Daniel. It allows him to pick exactly those which are relevant to his country’s economy, making the qualification directly applicable after graduation. However, he warns applicants to take time to properly read about all the options as the huge variety can be confusing if you try to rush.

Daniel loves living in London; he said “Nothing beats the experience of living in one of the biggest cities in the world. QMUL has a great learning environment, and has very helpful staff, which I found very useful during my first few days here.”
