Queen Mary is a member of the Russell Group of leading UK universities in the heart of East London with a truly global outlook, high quality teaching inspired by world-leading research and the highest student satisfaction levels of the leading London universities. With sites around the world, more than 27,000 students and over 160 nationalities represented on the University’s London campuses, Queen Mary is ranked in the top 20 institutions in the world for international outlook in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2020.

Colin Bailey, President and Principal of Queen Mary University of London, said: “Queen Mary is a truly global university and our international outlook informs our approach to everything we do, from our international partnerships and research collaborations to transnational education and student recruitment. Our wonderfully diverse student population and global outlook make us a natural choice for international students. Kaplan are world leaders in international education, and their teaching ethos, support for international students, global recruitment network and central location in London all provide a great fit with our Strategy.”

Linda Cowan, Managing Director of Kaplan International Pathways, said:  “We are delighted to be working with Queen Mary. UCAS recently released their 2019 International Insights report which showed that international students rank ‘quality of teaching’ highest among factors when choosing a university. With Queen Mary’s strong reputation for excellence in teaching along with their emphasis on diversity and innovation, we are confident this will be a highly successful partnership providing an exciting opportunity for international students who want to experience a world-class education.”
