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.

Hi! My name is Vanja Kljajevic and I come from Montenegro. Thanks to the Chevening Scholarship and QMUL, I have been given an opportunity to pursue a Masters degree in Marketing in 2016/2017. My academic journey is now ending, but a new chapter becoming a QMUL alumni is just starting. I look forward to assist prospective students considering to join our network!

Before joining QMUL, I worked as a Communication Manager in the American Chamber of Commerce in Montenegro for nearly three years. I am positive that obtaining an MSc degree from Queen Mary will prove as a valuable asset in my future carrier.

There are three key reasons I chose to from Queen Mary University of London: renowned quality, international orientation and location. Over the past year, Queen Mary has provided me with a vibrant and stimulating environment for both academic and personal growth. Situated in the East End, QMUL combines the best of London has to offer – a relaxed atmosphere for studying, yet in close proximity to hipster Shoreditch, the City and Central London. The academic excellence is definitely a priority to QMUL, which I experienced in all the modules taught throughout the year. The curriculum is in line with the latest industry trends and lecturers are extremely helpful in addressing any questions from students.

Based on my experience, I highly recommend Queen Mary postgraduate programs to all interested students. This year was truly a special experience and an important milestone in my life. Should you have any questions regarding QMUL, please contact me - I am more than happy to help!
