This is the second year in a row that students at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) have ranked their courses top in London among Russell Group universities for overall satisfaction.
A number of subjects from all three Faculties maintained very high levels of student satisfaction from previous surveys to be ranked in the top three in London, for example:
• Physics, ranked first for three years in a row• Medicine, ranked first for the last two years• Dentistry, ranked first in 2016 and second in 2015• Film, ranked first for the last two years• History, joint second for the last two years• Law, ranked third for the last two years
