Student profiles and Alumni ambassadors

Christina Thanushka Hettiarachchi
BA Law and Politics

Always wanting to do Law in the UK, I applied to quite a few universities. Queen Mary, University of London stood out as not only one of the best universities for Law, but also one of the very few offering a qualifying Law and Politics degree. Living on campus is one of the best aspects of university life. The student village is fully equipped to accommodate all your needs with the village shop, launderette, and Qmotion gym all less than five minutes walk away.

Roshane Perera
MSc Sustainable Energy Engineering 

After graduating from the University of Moratuwa an Electrical Engineer I wanted to pursue my career in Sustainable Energy Engineering. QMUL was one of my first choices, and the experience so far both academically and socially has been excellent.
