Graduates from Russell Group universities are especially valued by employers, giving you a head start when you apply for jobs.
We are also the third largest college of the University of London – which means our students have access to resources and facilities in the wider university community as well as those at Queen Mary. Queen Mary is ranked 7th in the UK for Graduate employability with an average starting salary of £23,118 The Times Good University Guide. The College has invested heavily in both new and existing resources, boasting excellent academic, housing and social facilities on-campus. Students have access both to the College’s modern library and to the collections of the University of London’s Senate House library. All students have free email and internet access and the student-to-computer ratio is one of the highest in Britain. The most recent addition to the campus is the new Student Village. Overlooking Regent’s Canal, the village contains residences, a shop, a launderette, cafe bar and a central reception. The College Careers Service offers a range of support services for all students.
Queen Mary’s Students’ Union is located in a large purpose-built building on the main Mile End campus. The building contains a shop, café, bars, sports facilities and union offices. It is one of the most active unions in the University of London and forms an important part of the College, being the focal point of students’ social life.
A brand new state-of-the-art Health and Fitness Centre opened in 2008. The gym includes two studios, a ladies-only gym, a squash court and sports hall. A range of social activities including walks, day trips, cinema nights are organised for international students each year.
East London was heavily bombed during WWII and was vacated by students, whom moved to Girton College, Cambridge and Clare College, Cambridge, University of Cambridge between 1939 and 1945. During that period, the university was occupied by army troops, intent on keeping the world’s busiest docks (The Docklands) from the invading Nazis. It was only after WWII that the college began a rapid expansion programme. The Humanities and Physics departments, were acquisitions made by the university after the area was heavily bombed. As further departments were added, it was also suggested in 1968 that the St Bartholomew's Hospital Medical College (SBHMC) and The London Hospital Medical College (LHMC), be associated with the university. The university started teaching medicine off site in 1989, and then fully merged with the SBHMC and the LHMC in 1995 to form Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry. The arts-based Westfield College and scientific Queen Mary also came together in 1989, but it took time to mould the new institution and overcome financial difficulties. The sale of Westfield’s Hampstead base released the necessary capital to begin to modernise the Mile End Road campus. Already London University’s fourth largest unit, Queen Mary is expected to carry on growing. It is one of London’s designated points of expansion in the sciences, although its strength is more obvious on the arts side, which boasts a number of high-profile academics.

For more detailed information on the Union’s activities, visit www.qmsu.org . The Union has some great sports facilities. A brand new state-of-the-art health and fitness centre, which opens in early 2008, boasts a cardio vascular zone, dedicated stretching areas, free weights area, two fitness studios, a ladies-only gym, a squash court and sports hall.The Students’ Union also supports a huge range of sports clubs – everything from the traditional team sports like hockey, football, rugby to the more unusual, such as cheerleading, ultimate Frisbee and Kickboxing. Students interested in football, rugby or cricket use Queen Mary’s pitches in Chislehurst, while the Hockey and Netball clubs use the facilities at the local Mile End Stadium, and the College’s boat club trains at the London Regatta Centre. All team sports compete in both the British University Sports Association (BUSA) and the University of London leagues and do very well. Queen Mary also has its own glossy magazine The Cub; nominated in recent years as one of the best student publications in the country.

The Student Union includes many active student-led religious societies and the College provides multi-faith prayer rooms equipped with washing facilities. St Benet’s, the College chaplaincy, is a weekday workplace church on the Mile End campus in addition to a multi-faith prayer room adjacent to the Student Union.
Barclays Bank is located on the Mile End campus, and branches of Barclays and National Westminster are situated close to the School of Medicine and Dentistry at Whitechapel.

The cash machine inside Budgen’s is more costly, charging £1.75 per transaction.
Shops on CampusAs of September 2006 a new bookshop opened on campus to replace the previous Waterstones, whilst offering identical books, but with the addition of more chocolate goodies and drinks. There is also a medicine and dentistry bookshop in the BLSA building at Whitechapel for the medics and dentistry students.

The library is most likely have all books required for your modules although more advanced research may be needed for specialised areas of your dissertation or essay, hence the reason why Queen Mary is affiliated with the University of London. Senate House is an almost frightening and flamboyant building with imposing architecture. It is exceptionally good for Humanities subjects and you can also work there without so much as hearing a pin drop. It is situated next to UCL and Birkbeck, University of London. If you fancy a more lavish and comfortable environment, may I enlighten you to the British library situated between Euston and King’s Cross. Membership is required, but filling out forms and getting the relevant paperwork is worthwhile to gaining access to their reading rooms. Books are pristine and you can find some near obsolete material. However, the universities library is open term time up until midnight 6 days a week, and onwards after the university closes for the summer period at reduced time periods for the benefit of postgraduates and medics. Medics also have their own architecturally pleasant looking libraries at Charterhouse Square and the Royal London; lucky devils.
IT & Learning EnvironmentsIT facilities, in particular, the Computer Science and Electronic Engineering laboratories, which are open until midnight. Otherwise there are computers in the library or in other rooms dispersed throughout campus.
London Underground, The TubeSocial Science departments. Mile End and Stepney Green tube stations are served by the Hammersmith & City and District Lines with the former also offering the Central line. The Central line runs through the City of London and onto the west end of London to the west, and North East London to the east. District Line runs all the way to Hammersmith and beyond in the west with it also running to Upminster in the East. The Hammersmith & City runs from Paddington in the West to Barking in the east, although eastbound is restricted to peak hours only.
The main Medical and Dental School campus is situated in Whitechapel, at the rear of the Royal London Hospital and is reachable via Whitechapel tube station, which is a five-minute walk. The London Overground serves the station from Croydon/New Cross in the south to the Dalston or Higbury and Islington terminals in the North. The District and Hammersmith lines also serve Whitechapel. The Medical and Dental School is also based at St. Bartholomew's Hospital and Charterhouse Square campus which are both within five minutes walk from Barbican tube station on the Hammersmith & City, Circle and Metropolitan lines. The Docklands Light Railway (DLR) also comes close to Queen Mary, with a five-minute bus journey from Bow station.
No over-ground trains come close enough to walking distance from Queen Mary; however, Bethnal Green, Limehouse and Stratford are bus journeys away and are within close proximity. However, this is London, and the time it takes to get to one of the two stations is most likely closer than most other main towns distance to their own railway station. London is a lot more compact than other cities, and a five-minute walk down the road is considered too far for some students.
London has several main terminal stations, and the closest to Queen Mary is Liverpool Street (2 stations away by Central Line from Mile End) and Fenchurch Street (4 stops away by Distrct to Tower Hill) stations based on the Eastern side of The City. Liverpool Street station will take you to suburban Essex and Anglia, whereas Fenchurch Street will take you to Thurrock and towards southern Essex. For northen cities and towns, Kings Cross & St Pancras and Euston are slightly further on adjoining the Hammersmith & City Line which routes direct to Mile End. All main terminal stations are easily reachable from Mile End, as all are linked to the Circle line which van be picked up from Liverpool Street.
London offers two main forms of ticketing, travelcards which allow unlimited travel within the purchased zones (there are 6 concentric zones in London, with Queen Mary lying in Zone 2) and the Oyster Card smart ticketing scheme, which works on either a pay-as-you-go basis or can have travelcards loaded onto it. It is advisable to purchase a ticket if you live within zones one to six. Beyond the designated zones, prices dramatically increase, but still may work out cheaper if you intend travelling to and from the university. You can use an Oyster card on all Overground trains within Zone 6, except javelin trains from Stratford International. The train operators will normally provide information either on the train or at the station to where you can use an Oyster card.
Many buses come within about a one-minute walk to and from the university, with only three buses actually stopping directly outside. The number 25 bus is frequent serving day and night. Don’t look at timetables; just wait a couple of minutes and three will come along at once. The 25 bus is popular and serves the West End of London all the way to Ilford in North East London. The 205 which goes to Liverpool Street, Kings Cross and beyond, but Mile End is the last stop. Both the 25 and 205 run 24-hours-a-day. The only other bus to stop outside, which is rather infrequent, is the 339, which serves from Old Ford to Shadwell next to the Thames.
There too many buses to mention, but you can also expect destinations such as Canary Wharf, The City of London, Canning Town, Stratford, Hackney and Highbury to also be reachable. A 10-minute walk down the road either way will provide you with further unlimited destinations. All destinations are within the typical one to six zones and can be used in conjunction with a daily, weekly, monthly or annual travel card. However, I suggest you look into the Oyster Card system and read whether or not it can benefit you. Its complex at first, but once you have worked the system out you can save a packet from your standard travel card, which costs £6.30 for a one to six zone card after 9:30am and £12.30 before 9:30am. The price slightly decreases if you use fewer zones. Zone six is quite far out and is generally on the buffer zone of London just prior to the M25 motorway.
Although not inner city, you can still expect to flag down a black cab on the way into the City or West End. Do expect to pay approx £5.00 to the City and about £10-15 to the West End. Black cabs are not cheap.
As a beloved car owner myself, I have tried everything to ascertain a permit by bribing the lecturers and even asking the local residents, all to no avail. So don’t try it. However, if you're mega rich, which some students are, then you can park in Bancroft Way opposite the Student Union for £3.00 per hour outside a pay and display meter. However, these are very limited and as such, even if you are prepared to pay, you may end up finding yourself neglected of a space. Evening parking is easier and free of charge outside the university and along Bancroft way. You can find the university from central London by following signs for Whitechapel (A11) just off the CC ring road (A1202); QM being impossible to miss as the Maths department will be prominent with fully illuminated logo and signage 30 metres in the air about two miles along the A11. Driving from the east would incur the A13 from the North Circular (A406) until you have just passed the India Dock. You should see a sign for the A1205 and Mile End. Follow this road until the next main traffic light and turn a left at the green painted environmental bridge. Queen Mary is 200 yards on your right hand side.
Barclays Cycle Hire
The newest form of public transport available to London is the Barclays Cycle Hire scheme, which allows you to rent bikes to cycle between docking stations spread throughout zones 1 and 2. You can pay either with a credit/debit card at the docking station terminal or buy a key online which is the easier option if you plan to use it regularly. 24 hours access to the bikes costs £1 (£2 from Jan 2013), one week costs £5 (£10 from Jan 2013) and an annual subscription costs £45 (£90 from Jan 2013). You will also be charged for the amount of time spent on the bike, although if journeys are kept to below 30mins no charge is incurred (the average cyclist will reach Central London in 15-20mins). There are several docking stations around the campus and very close by, regularly restocked with bikes.
As you would expect from any urban London university, Queen Mary is close to all attractions with it being 15 minutes from the West End (Leicester Square), five-to-10 minutes from the City (Monument and St Pauls Cathedral), 10 minutes from Canary Wharf and 10 minutes from Tower Bridge. London is not as big as some people think when you have an enormous transport infrastructure, which serves every single place in London.
The results of the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise, announced in December 2008, confirmed Queen Mary’s place in the very top group of research-led universities. According to tables published in Times Higher Education, Queen Mary has been ranked 13th in the country out of the 132 institutions which submitted for the exercise. The Guardian places Queen Mary even higher, 11th in the UK. The THE comments “the biggest star among the research-intensive institutions was Queen Mary, University of London, which went from 48th in 2001 to 13th in the 2008 Times Higher Education table, up 35 places.” Queen Mary is ranked fourth amongst University of London multi-faculty colleges, 10 places ahead of King’s College London, which was ranked 22nd in the country. Queen Mary is ranked ahead of several Russell Group institutions, including Bristol, Sheffield, Leeds, Nottingham, Birmingham, Southampton, Liverpool and Newcastle. Queen Mary has also excelled in several subject groups, being in the top five in many, including: Cancer studies (ranked 4th equal ahead of Oxford, Imperial, KCL and UCL). Epidemiology and public health (ranked 3rd ahead of Oxford, UCL and Bristol) Health Services Research (ranked 4th ahead of Oxford, UCL and KCL). Dentistry (ranked 2nd ahead of KCL and UCL) Pre-clinical and human biological sciences (ranked 4th ahead of KCL, Bristol and Nottingham) English Language and Literature (ranked 2nd ahead of UCL, Oxford and Cambridge) Linguistics (ranked 1st ahead of UCL, Oxford and Cambridge) Drama, dance and performing arts (ranked 1st for Drama, but 2nd equal in the unit of assessment with the department ahead of us not being entered for Drama) Geography (ranked 1st equal with Bristol, Cambridge, Durham and Oxford)
Queen Mary is also in the top 10 in: Other hospital-based clinical subjects Russian, Slavonic and East European Studies Iberian Languages (Hispanic Studies), Metallurgy and Materials Economics and Econometrics In addition, Queen Mary has made substantial achievements in many other extremely competitive subjects, including History, Computer Science and Electronic Engineering. Business and Management, despite being a new department that was not entered at all in 2001, has equalled the Cass Business School at City University in the THE RAE ranking.
Mile End Area
The university campus is approximately half-a-mile in size from east to west and covers most of the distance from Mile End tube to Stepney Green tube stations. The east side of Queen Mary is banked alongside the Regents Canal, which flows all the way to the Limehouse basin in Canary Wharf and to Regents Park and beyond westbound. Regents canal is a tributary of the River Thames. Within close vicinity to the university are two public parks that the canal runs through, Mile End Park and Victoria Park. Students occupy most of the universities surroundings at term time.
Safety & Crime
There is an enormous misconception about the university's surroundings and safety of the area. As an existing student myself and one whom has managed plenty of buildings within the area for over five years, I can categorically deny any suggestion of crime being rife in comparison to any other London Borough or town. As the university is located in an urban area and approx two miles from the City Of London, the population is dense and crime figures are generally higher than suburban boroughs. We can always expect boroughs such as Westminster, Camden, Lambeth, Southwark, Tower Hamlets and Islington to be the worse for crime. Such is the case, Queen Mary happens to be in an area safer than most inner London universities, and one of the safest London universities overall .
