Your student experience

Our students enjoy an exciting and intellectually stimulating environment throughout their degree.

We are committed to fostering a collaborative and supportive community spirit among students and staff.

This commitment extends outside of core teaching hours and there is always something for students to get involved in at QMUL.

Extra-curricular activities

We want you to get as much from your time at Queen Mary as possible, so we host a wide range of educational and social events. From field trips to film screenings, societies to the Student Union, there’s plenty to keep you busy when you’re not studying.

Undergraduate History Journal

Launched in September 2011, the Queen Mary Undergraduate History Journal is the UK’s first history journal written and edited entirely by students. The journal is published twice a year, and all students are invited to submit essays for inclusion.

Support for students

Most students have a straightforward experience of being at university, but in the case of problems Queen Mary has a well-established network of academic, personal and medical support. We also provide information on every aspect of student life, helping you get the most out of your experience.

Students outside the Curve

Students can make use of our extensive on-campus facilities – both educational and social.  Our location and our membership of the University of London means easy access to all the research libraries, archives and museums that the capital has to offer.
