Year on year rise in undergraduate student applications repeated for 2014
Applications to study at undergraduate level at Queen Mary University of London are up almost 15 per cent this year, according to statistics released by Ucas after their undergraduate application deadline in January*.
Several subjects have seen particularly large increases in popularity, including Medicine, Computer Science and technology subjects, Biomedical Sciences, Politics, History, Economics and other social sciences.
Applications by UK students to Queen Mary have increased by more than 16 per cent since last year. There has also been an increase in interest from international students, by more than 14 per cent for EU applicants and almost 8 per cent for those outside the EU.
In 2012, Queen Mary joined the Russell Group of 24 leading UK universities committed to maintaining the very best research, an outstanding teaching and learning experience, excellent graduate employability and unrivalled links with business and the public sector.
With a 2,000-bed award-winning student village at its Mile End campus, Queen Mary is the only London university able to offer a completely integrated residential campus. More than £250m has been invested in new facilities in the past 15 years and the National Student Survey regularly ranks student satisfaction at Queen Mary as well above the national average and amongst the highest in London.
