I love the warm and welcoming environment at Queen Mary, as well as the wide range of things to do and the fantastic location just minutes away from Central London. Studying Maths here is particularly interesting – there’s a huge variety of modules, so I have the opportunity to tailor my degree to my career plans and interests. I’m the first member of my family to go to university, and during my first year here I also managed to secure two society committee positions – two achievements that I’m very proud of and that wouldn’t have been possible without Queen Mary!
