    Queen Mary University of London is a leading research-intensive university with a difference. Its history dates back to 1785 and beyond, with each of its four founding institutions established to provide “hope and opportunity” to under-represented members of society.

    Today, Queen Mary is a global university that remains true to the vision of its founders, committed to opening the doors of opportunity and improving lives locally, nationally and internationally. With staff and students from over 160 nationalities across its community, it is one of the most diverse higher education institutions in the world, and one whose undergraduate student profile is distinctive for a Russell Group University. More than 90 per cent of home students come from state schools, with 40 per cent of home students being the first in their family to go to university. Around 60 per cent of students are BAME (black, Asian and ethnic minority) and more than 25 per cent are from households where annual taxable income is less than £10,000.

    Research and teaching go and-in-hand at Queen Mary. Outputs across all faculties have informed world-leading highlights, from robotics and AI research and innovation, a groundbreaking gene therapy trial into a haemophilia cure, underpinning advancements in the treatment of cancer and heart disease, to an acclaimed and award-winning biography of Charles de Gaulle.

    University researchers have paved the way in identifying genetic determinants for specific illnesses through sequencing 100,000 whole genomes. An international team of scientists, led by astronomers at Queen Mary, discovered a planet orbiting Proxima Centauri, the closest star to the Solar System. Queen Mary’s research into the Living Wage fed directly in to the campaign movement and the University became the first Russell Group member to be Living Wage-accredited.

    Ranked fifth in the UK for the quality of research outputs (REF 2014), Medicine, Dentistry, Linguistics, Film Studies, Engineering and Drama are ranked among the top in the country and internationally.

    Queen Mary is embedded in the heart of London with campuses in Mile End, Whitechapel, Lincoln’s Inn Field, West Smithfield and Charterhouse Square, and the rest of London – and the world – on its doorstep.
