Teaching and researchwith a global impact

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.
