About Queen Mary, University of London

Queen Mary University of London is dedicated to the public good, pursuing the creation and dissemination of knowledge to the highest international standards, thereby transforming wider society and the lives of our students and staff.

QMUL is one of the UK's leading research-focused higher education institutions. With more than 20,000 students, 4,000 staff and an annual turnover of £300m, it is one of the biggest University of London colleges and a Russell Group institution. It works across a wide range of subjects in the humanities and social sciences, medicine and dentistry, and science and engineering.

International Partnerships

QMUL is ranked in the top 20 in the world by THE for international outlook. At the core of this are the innovative and mutually beneficial partnerships we established with high quality institutions overseas. For example, in China in 2004 QMUL teamed up with Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications (BUPT) to offer a set of jointly run degree programmes in telecommunications systems and networks. Students graduate with two degrees - from BUPT and QMUL – while teaching takes place in Beijing but is done entirely in English and is split 50/50 between the universities. In 2013 QMUL launched a Joint Programme with Nanchang University to deliver degrees in biomedical sciences and by 2014 the number of students recruited on the programme rose to 250. A partnership was established with Sichuan University which led in 2012 to the foundation of a joint Sino-British Institute for Materials Research at Sichuan University which will enable QMUL to become a world leader in organic electronics.

Notable Research Areas

QMUL ranked 9th among multi-faculty institutions in the UK in the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014, published by the Times Higher Education. This includes eight subjects ranked in the top ten according to Grade Point Average (GPA).
