From our students

What I love most about Queen Mary is the teaching staff. All of them have been helpful throughout all the years I have spent here. They are always happy to discuss feedback and thanks to them, I can safely say I am now more confident in my abilities and potential.
— Sara Zontone, Politics and International Relations BA (2019)

School of Politics and International Relations

The School of Politics and International Relations at Queen Mary is invested in high-quality teaching, and we pride ourselves on our friendly and informal approach. Our staff are active researchers with diverse interests, from British politics to the Middle East, which is reflected in our teaching and the breadth of our programmes.

Our location in one of the world’s greatest capital cities is hard to beat. Home to the nation’s Parliament, political think tanks and economic powerhouses, London is where all the action takes place. We host a range of high-profile speakers on campus, and offer students regular contact with Westminster, Whitehall and the third sector through our events.

Students can also take advantage of the Mile End Institute, a major policy centre based at Queen Mary which brings together policymakers, academics and local communities to address national political challenges.
