Queen Mary University of London

Queen Mary is a Russell Group University with a difference – one that opens the doors of opportunity to anyone with the potential to succeed.

Students on roof of Birkbeck

Our history dates back to 1785 and beyond, with each of our four founding institutions established to provide “hope and opportunity” to under-represented members of society.

Queen Mary remains true to the vision of our founders, committed to improving lives locally, nationally and internationally.

We are a place of world-leading research, 14th in the world and 5th in the UK for research quality. We have 9 Noble Prize winners among our former staff and students. We are recognized as a pioneer of social mobility and public engagement.

International students

With over 170 nationalities represented on our London campuses alone, Queen Mary is a truly global University.

Our home is in London, but with an academic presence in China, Malta and Paris, our students and staff collaborate, study, and live internationally.

We are also the only campus-based Russell Group university in London, offering the safety and community of campus life in the heart of one of the best student cities in the world.
