Starting life in 1887 as the People’s Palace, a Victorian philanthropic project, Queen Mary has always aimed to transform the lives of the working people of the East End through education, recreation and culture. The university has grown considerably since its origins, joining with the distinguished medical colleges of St Bartholomew’s (est. 1123) and the Royal London Hospitals (est. 1740) to form our Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry.
Now, we are a Russell Group university based in east London, teaching across the full disciplinary spectrum. With staff and students from over 160 nationalities, we are one of the most diverse higher education institutions in the world.
Queen Mary is known for its rich history. It was a dream to study at such a prestigious university.— Arish Choudhary from India, Introduction to International Law
