Queen Mary, University of London


Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) was founded in 1785 as the London Medical College. It is an amalgamation of four historic medical institutes i.e. Queen Mary College, Westfield College, St Bartholomew's Hospital Medical College and the London Hospital Medical College.

It was officially granted university status in 1887 and now offers over 240 degree programmes across three faculties: Humanities and Social Sciences, Science and Engineering, and Medicine and Dentistry.

Queen Mary merged with the medical schools of St Bartholomew's and the Royal London hospitals in 1995.

Today QMUL is home to more than 20,000 students from 155 different nationalities, the university?s five campuses are all situated in the heart of the capital. Its main campus at Mile End, in London?s fashionable East End, is the biggest self-contained university campus anywhere in the city.

With international students making up 40 per cent of the total student population, the university prides itself on having a vibrant, multicultural community with programmes in place, including help with English, to support overseas students. It also offers students assistance with job-hunting via the university?s own jobs website.

QMUL is a member of the Russell Group of research-led universities. The Group attracts the brightest students from all over the world. Graduates from Russell Group universities are especially valued by employers, giving you a head start when applying for jobs. QMUL was ranked 9th among UK universities in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework. It scores consistently highly in other global league tables and was in The Sunday Times? top ten UK universities for highest graduate starting salaries.

QMUL also lays claim to associations with six Nobel Prize winners, the skeleton of Joseph Merrick (?the Elephant Man?) housed in its Pathology Museum, and the second oldest surviving Jewish cemetery in England, dating from 1726, located in the centre of its campus.
