We are one of only 24 universities who make up the prestigious Russell Group

By choosing to study at a Russell Group university, you will have access to excellent teaching and top class research. You will be taught by staff who are working at the cutting edge of research in their disciplines. Staff who are actively involved in research as well as teaching are up-to-date with their subjects, enthusiastic about sharing this knowledge with you and very good at explaining it.

One of the major factors that attracted me to Queen Mary was its Russell Group status...as it meant that I would be taught by leading academics who are involved in groundbreaking research.
