Member reviews of Queen Mary University of London

  • Sarah1778's avatar by Sarah1778 on 24th January 2019
    Overall:
    Queen Mary overall is a really good university, good teaching staff at Charterhouse Square, good facilities, good social life. Areas of improvement would be more study space at CHSQ, and more focus on dyslexia/disability service.
    University:
    Uni life at Queen Mary is so good, societies actually keep in touch and there are regular meetings and socials catering for different groups e.g. drinking vs non-drinkers, both daytime and evening events etc.
    Course:
    All the lectures are crammed into two 9am-6pm days, this really affects focusing especially when you have three hours lectures. Lectures are generally informative, teaching staff are good and helpful. All lectures are audio+video recorded.
    Location:
    Charterhouse Square, Central London, zone 1. It's such a nice pretty location, hidden away from noisy traffic. Would say food is expensive, and not many places to sit and study. Very small library is 10 mins walk away in nearby hospital.
    Accommodation:
    Dawson Hall is on campus, seems nice
    Settling in:
    The long 9am-6pm days and very heavy work schedule are just so hard to manage, particularly because I work part-time. It's really hard to stay awake during three hour lectures. Assignments are given out from the first week.

    Overall:
    Russel group, in London
    University:
    Uni life is better than home life in my opinion. I love having the freedom to do whatever I want.
    Course:
    Timetable is similar weekly which I like, however we don't have many contact hours(maybe 15 a week including labs). The lecturers are nice and approachable however most have thick accents so can be hard to understand at times.
    Location:
    In london which is great, mile end isn't the best but it's up and coming. Close to mile end tube station which is on multiple lines and has lots of bus lines through it also.
    Accommodation:
    Best value student accommodation I've seen in London. However I did get lucky with my room as I could see canary wharf from my kitchen and central london from my bedroom window. The walls were thick so couldn't hear my neighbours which was a bonus.
    Settling in:
    I went to the same uni as a couple friends which helped but it was super quickly as everyone was really friendly and I adapted to the situation quite quickly.

    Overall:
    A great uni in a great location. Would definitely recommend to all looking for a campus uni in London
    University:
    The clubs nearby and on campus are great and the sports clubs are good and affordable. The library always has space to study in and the staff are great help.
    Course:
    My tutors are easily accessible and keep me updated via email. The timetable is very busy but manageable. The new modules introduced during my first year i felt were unnecessary but were still enjoyable.
    Location:
    Very close to central London and very good transport links
    Accommodation:
    My student loan covered my housing but i had to keep up my part time job in order to buy food and live a life. It was on campus so I couldn't have asked for a better location.
    Settling in:
    The teachers started slow in order for everyone to get to grips with the new timetable. The housing staff were also very accommodating
  • Harvey96's avatar by Harvey96 on 24th January 2019
    Overall:
    Brilliant university. Would thoroughly recommend it as it's very close to central London so there is always something going on but also there's plenty going on in Mile End anyway.
    University:
    Many restaurants on campus for eating during the day or night. The student union bar is cheap and has a great atmosphere and plays music. The library is open 24 hours a day now to allow students to go in whenever they want/need.
    Course:
    The foundation year is a very good start to build upon in future years and the feedback provided for tasks that are set is quick and very helpful.
    Location:
    Only a few tube stops from Central London which is full of activity. Even in East London there's always something going on, you'll never struggle to find something to do.
    Accommodation:
    University accommodation is comfortable and affordable. The most expensive building, France House, has great views and plenty of space.
    Settling in:
    Settled in very quickly. Once the semester starts and you have a routine it's very easy to feel settled in. The first couple of weeks can be quite slow academically although societies make up for this.
  • emicha's avatar by emicha on 24th January 2019
    Overall:
    I'm falling in love with it, it wasn't my first choice but the people I've met and the flatmates I have, along with the societies I've joined have made any reservations I had disappear.
    University:
    There are so many societies to join and facilities on Campus. The buildings are traditional but brought up to date where they need to be inside, Gyms across all campus' and an awesome BLSA SU.
    Course:
    This is a really interesting course, and the lecturers are all doctors that have come out of the field to research in certain areas of Global Health.
    Location:
    Who doesn't love London?!
    Accommodation:
    Dawson is awesome, central and up to date housing. It is further out than Floyer, but I prefer the rooms and location.
    Settling in:
    There were so many people to help bring your stuff to your room, and so friendly and reassuring.

  • cheeji's avatar by cheeji on 24th January 2019
    Overall:
    The student support staff at the School of Mathematical Sciences are super helpful and supportive and just super informative.
    University:
    Library is resourceful however during exam season it can be stressful to find study space if I’m honest. There are plenty of shops and food places nearby. Plenty of clubs and societies (around 100 I believe). QM is also very involved in their sports.
    Course:
    The student support staff at the School of Mathematical Sciences are super helpful and supportive and just super informative.
    Location:
    Convenient for me to travel to and also to travel from to go to Central London or go to Westfield for some shopping. However surrounding the campus there is quite a few homeless people and it’s just such a contrast to the campus.
    Accommodation:
    I commute so I have no comment.
    Settling in:
    People and staff have all been friendly. Easy to locate buildings and rooms too.
  • Salimshady007's avatar by Salimshady007 on 24th January 2019
    Overall:
    If your looking for a good course and do a lot of sports to compete in then it would be a good idea to join this university
    University:
    Could join more sports club
    Course:
    Timetable- Needs to be more compact Module content- good Quality of teaching/Feedback and quality of lectures/seminars- Could be improved
    Location:
    Very close to a lot of shops and leisure areas
    Accommodation:
    I haven't explored this area yet
    Settling in:
    Could have joined a society at the beginning of my first year.

  • saliha981's avatar by saliha981 on 20th November 2018
    Overall:
    I enjoy university life and have met lots of wonderful people. The course is also wonderful with a range of opportunities.
    University:
    Very enjoyable just make an effort.
    Course:
    I enjoy this course due to the high range of modules and different subjects available to study. I like the seminar tutors and lecturers however, sometimes the PHD students who teach can be a little arrogant and expect you to know things you do not.
    Location:
    Could be better. Not central so a few shops around but you can get a bus easily to Canary Wharf and Stratford.
    Accommodation:
    I don’t live in student accommodation.
    Settling in:
    Good amount of events during welcome week to get you acquainted with the subjects and other people taking your subject.

    Overall:
    The university is simply excellent
    University:
    Good atmosphere
    Course:
    The module content is clearly laid out and my teachers as well as other staff are friendly and approachable.
    Location:
    Good location
    Accommodation:
    The accommodation is more than sufficient for me.
    Settling in:
    I settled into the university well.
  • GradeJockey's avatar by GradeJockey on 20th November 2018
    Overall:
    Thus far, it has been a great experience full of amazing and interesting people, and engaging lectures.
    University:
    The Uni has great locations, such as the Student Villiage Shop, and Drapers Bar, presenting a microcosm of everyday life within the Uni. However, the library appears to be a little on the small side is a tad confusing to navigate.
    Course:
    I am still in the early days of the course, but thus far everything seems excellent. The material is interesting, and lecturers are charismatic and engaging.
    Location:
    Queen Mary is an ideal location to study English and Film, due to its location within London, the hub of so much of the adcadmeic and practical work going on in those fields.
    Accommodation:
    The accomodation is spacious, and storage space is well organised, and while he price is a tad expensive, it’s a reasonable price for the city.
    Settling in:
    I’ve settled in rather well. It took a couple days to find friends, but have found my footing, and think I’ve already made some lasting bonds.
  • AlishaMcSporran's avatar by AlishaMcSporran on 20th November 2018
    Overall:
    I think I made the right decision attending Queen Mary, not only does it offer a stellar, world class education (part of Russel Group) but it offers many great opportunities to study abroad, get work placements and use the facilities.
    University:
    Queen Mary is not necessarily the embodiment of university life in so far as that the campus is not always busy with students, however when people are around it has a lovely feel to it
    Course:
    I found the course content fascinating and first year provides you with a brilliant foundation to build upon.
    Location:
    I love living in London, and love the slight distance between Queen Mary and the City. Mile End became very homely and felt much safer than people made out.
    Accommodation:
    I did not get student housing by Queen Mary. I got my place through clearing, but they only kept 100 rooms for students who got in this way and I did not get any of these despite applying quickly.
    Settling in:
    I settled in perfectly. The course eases you in for the first two or three weeks, giving you good time to develop some friendships.
  • Clubba's avatar by Clubba on 25th July 2017

    University:

    Decent accomodation for a relatively decent price

    A variety of people about to make almost everyone feel at home
  • AlexN's avatar by AlexN on 28th February 2017
    Overall:
    See other responses above.
    University:
    See other responses above.
    Course:
    Engaging lecturers who really want the best for you. They support you on a one-to-one level if you come and see them during office hours. But don't be fooled, they won't spoon feed you throughout your degree, they really want you to become independent thinkers and not rely on their "authority" as lecturers/professors. The course is accredited by the IOP (institute of physics) meaning you're being exposed to top quality teaching (by leading experts in their field) that will leave you in good standing amongst other physics institutions throughout europe and the world. All in all this is a good place to consider if you want to take up a physics degree.
    Location:
    It's not as attractive as some of the most beautiful universities out there, but that shouldn't be a major factor in deciding on a place to study. It's what's inside that counts, not outside.
    Accommodation:
    I commute from home so couldn't give a fair opinion. However most of my mates who live on campus and on student accommodation are quite happy from the sounds of it. I've see a fair few and they seems pretty standard. Of course the best course of action is to come and see for yourself through accommodation viewings.
    Settling in:
    The people here are really friendly, especially in the physics department. I remember in my first year, the senior students would casually come and say hi and start a pleasant conversation with you. They would give you pointers about modules and share "secret" locations where you can find spare computers during peak times (when it almost seems difficult to find a free computer). The people I now call friends were all on the same boat as me. We were all nervous and unaware of what our journey into university life would be like, but we all made it through. We now share life long experiences that will never be forgotten. Thinking about it right now, I will surely miss my time at Queen Mary University. Settling in should be fairly straightforward as there is always someone there that you will just connect with. Just be confident that it will happen and it will.
  • Jenfu's avatar by Jenfu on 7th October 2015
    Overall:
    Overall a great university - and the only campus uni in London so you can experience campus life but still experience London. I've heard support is lacking a little for some courses e.g. Comparative Lit, but English is generally great with enthusiastic and helpful teachers.
    University:
    Excellent events, huge array of societies, good library, huge gym and very active student union.
    Course:
    Teaching quality was excellent, though I have PHD students for two of my courses who could be slightly better - this is merely due to lack of experience but means I am automatically at a disadvantage to peers who are tutored by course conveners etc.
    Location:
    We're in London - but it's East London. Mile End crime rate is quite high and could feel safer at times, but the fact that QMUL is a campus uni helps with this concern.
    Accommodation:
    On campus, so location was great. Maintenance was slow to respond to issues and once failed to respond at all. Cleaners used our kitchen as a tea room and did not do a great deal of cleaning.
    Settling in:
    Freshers events were great

    Great location in London and close to many services
    Accommodation:
    Not used it myself, but not heard very good things
    Settling in:
    Everyone is really friendly, but I guess commuting makes it a little harder to feel at home than living there due to going back and forth

    University:
    Because people are bubbly and are ready to live that life
    Course:
    Because aerospace engineering is what I've wanted to do, I love machines that fly. Also my love for physics and maths have been combined into one in this course.

  • sabrineshaw's avatar by sabrineshaw on 5th October 2015
    Overall:
    So far it has been alright, I enjoyed the English modules more than the Drama. Second and Third year will be better because you can choose from a variety of modules.
    University:
    Library is good, societies seem disorganised overall.
    Course:
    There were some elements of first year that I didn't enjoy because you couldn't choose your modules, specifically for Drama, the English modules were great.
    Location:
    Mile End is not the best location let me tell you. If the uni wasn't as good as it is in terms of rankings and such, I probably would have gone somewhere else.
    Accommodation:
    I stayed in private student accommodation, very expensive but plenty of amenities all on site (gym, sainsburys, atm, laundry)
    Settling in:
    Living abroad for all my life then coming to London was a difficult transition, it took me time to adapt.

    All I can say is so far so good! I am pretty content (considering I am a picky person haha)
    University:
    The clubs are open to everyone and even in political and religion societies no one is judgemental. Everyone is open minded.
    Course:
    4 starts purely fur to the fact that my timetable changes often. However the lectures are inspirational and the seminars are good fun and though that you still learn!
    Location:
    Campus is so diverse and also the cafes are a really nice place to chat and study.everything is available on campus, you don't even need to leave the uni!

  • Shivakaran's avatar by Shivakaran on 30th September 2015
    Overall:
    Queen Mary is a true city campus uni with most facilities for similar subjects concentrated in a few areas. A range of services is provided to cater for all personal, health and educational needs, backed up by enthusiastic staff. All manner of unlikely events are considered and prepared for, ensuring that when you need help the most whether from a recent death or homework struggles, most staff, academics and students are friendly enough to help or provide guidance.
    University:
    There is a good combination of facilities inside and outside the uni with most at low prices. Events are planned for every day of the week including the weekend, ranging from nerdy society activities to pub crawls and a range of sports for free trial.
    Course:
    Although teaching is mostly great with a good combination of lectures, seminars, tutorials and independent time, I have an issue with the timetabling and the initial modules.
    Location:
    My campus is in east London which is filled with trendy shops and markets as well as a bustling international community. There are easy access to all variety of stores yet at the same time, one can find easily find hidden gems and spots of oasis within the busy London.
    Accommodation:
    The rooms come in a variety and at a range of prices with most within the campus area. The size of the room was smaller than expected!
    Settling in:
    Though the Fresher's fair and campus tours helps you find your way around the uni, it takes usually longer to settle into a routine due to a big step up from sixth form to university.

  • Dylan246's avatar by Dylan246 on 30th September 2015
    Overall:
    I would give my university experience overall 5 stars because you instantly feel at home here and feel confident on your course because the professors are equally passionate about the subject you're studying and they're teaching. There is also a brilliantly mental health service and disability service that provide so much support for first year students.
    University:
    Because it provides great support and stuff to do in the evenings socially and academically. I wish that they do more at weekends because not everyone wants to or can go home on weekends.
    Course:
    Because it is exactly how I imagined being taught English would be, and it had the same excellent performance of teaching as shown on the post offer day.
    Location:
    Because I can get home if I need to and I have so much access to social events and career plans within the city.
    Accommodation:
    Because it feels like I am at home and it is very easy to get from place to place on campus.
    Settling in:
    Because I wanted to come to this university, so I instantly felt like I belonged here. And Freshers week was excellent in making me feel like an adult and a student at university.

  • HaydenAmani's avatar by HaydenAmani on 30th September 2015
    Overall:
    This university is the only one in London with a real core student campus village, which really helps you feel involved with the uni. The teaching is also some of the best in the country, with most staff being leaders in their field. I would really recommend studying at this university.
    University:
    The library is 24 hours, there are countless societies and facilities available to make uni life very enjoyable
    Course:
    It is an engaging course with a high quality of teaching and resources
    Location:
    It is very close to central London but also next to Westfield shopping centre, Liverpool street etc. so is a very ideal location
    Accommodation:
    It is quite expensive but not too unreasonable considering that it is in London
    Settling in:
    There are lots of events that help you settle in very quickly

    University:
    It has a lot of societies, activities, events, parties for students
    Course:
    The course seems interensting, the timetable is ok and the teachers seem very nice and willing to help you.
    Location:
    It's in zone 2 and it's pretty close to the zone 1.
    Accommodation:
    Everything is in good condition and I have enough space for all my stuff.

  • mariomario1's avatar by mariomario1 on 19th September 2015
    Overall:
    It's a great university and has a really friendly atmosphere. The area may not be perfect for some but if you're adventurous enough then you'll find hidden gems scattered throughout the area. The campus itself at Mile End is really nice!
    University:
    It's London. Everything you could possibly want is a minute away.
    Course:
    There is so much support available and everything is clear. It's structured in a genius way and there is plenty of help available to ensure you get the most out of the course.
    Location:
    East London is 'quirky' to say the least, but you grow to love it in the end.
    Accommodation:
    The rooms were huge but didn't feel homely at all.
    Settling in:
    It took me a while to get used to the big city, especially if you come from a quiet suburban town.
  • holly_1994's avatar by holly_1994 on 18th September 2015
    Overall:
    I absolutely loved my first year of university, and know that I will love my second and third years too. Overall, I'd give it 7/10 for the campus, and 9/10 for my course.
    University:
    There's always something going on, whether it be social or academic events.
    Course:
    When I started, you had complete freedom to design the course yourself. So you could choose mainly modern modules and forego medieval modules, or vice versa. This is brilliant, because it means that you can specialise in three years, and not just your second and third years.
    Location:
    It's nicely located to the centre of London, and just a short walk from the tube station. The only problem is that the surrounding area (Mile End) isn't exactly safe. I know some people who have had no problems with the area at all, but I have experienced some uncomfortable and dangerous situations. The area overall for most of the time is fine, but you have to keep your wits about you. Also, it's in a very ethnic area and near to a large mosque, so it can get pretty busy on the streets outside.
    Accommodation:
    I chose the most expensive accommodation, but it was by no means perfect. Everything was stained or rusted, and housing services were terrible to respond. We waited 3 months for someone to look at our broken hoover, and were criticised by housing services for having "untidy carpets" during room inspection. They nearly charged us as a result.
    Settling in:
    It's a very comfortable university. Everybody is lovely, and it quickly feels like home.
  • IB-Ashley's avatar by IB-Ashley on 18th September 2015

    Excellent university with plenty of opportunities made available for their students.
    University:
    Two bars for students, and plentiful space for student union and societies.
    Course:
    Ideal for my timetable. A large amount of contact hours and plenty of direction.
    Location:
    Perfect location in near central London, and one stop from Westfield. Multiple tube stations and plenty of shops in the area.
    Accommodation:
    Affordable, clean and well kept
    Settling in:
    Easy directions, and student are friendly enough to help you if needed
  • AnnaLC's avatar by AnnaLC on 18th September 2015
    Overall:
    5/5
    University:
    There is always something going on to keep you entertained and amused.
    Course:
    The lecturers are exceptional, they have so much time for you when you're stuck or just want to talk about your work/things you're interested in. The timetable is heavy but you wouldn't expect anything less from a physics degree, and it also means you have a lot of contact hours to seek any help.
    Location:
    It is a campus university which has all of the fantastic benefits of having everything in one place, and yet it is still in the biggest city in the UK. London is a phenomenal place to study and not half as expensive as everyone seems to think.
    Accommodation:
    It has everything you need but is not necessarily exceptional. The people you live with make it exceptional.
    Settling in:
    Societies and organised group activities helped immensely. Everyone is in the same boat so it is very easy to for friendship groups and support networks. Everyone wants to make friends.

    University:
    Campus life is really good.Not too crowded. Plenty of amenities such as gym, library, clubs etc... book shop is extremely expensive though...
    Course:
    I love the course content and it is challenging. However, the lecturers can be unresponsive sometimes and not helpful in practicals (in giving important info)
    Location:
    Close to central London!
    Accommodation:
    Location (On campus) is good and there are plenty of overspill accommodation areas in close proximity. Only campus accommodation is possibly affordable. Out of halls is DISGUSTING for prices... Quality is not great on campus. Pay more for better accommodation.
    Settling in:
    I was off campus so the halls were more expensive but better quality.I settled in really quickly, even though I didn't do any clubbing stuff..
  • shona_x.'s avatar by shona_x. on 13th September 2015
    Overall:
    Amazing.
    University:
    Clubs and societies are very entertaining, library is very good for studying, shopping is very easily accessible - Westfield is closeby.
    Course:
    2 hour lectures and then 1 hour classes in which content from the lecture was reviewed in detail. This helped a lot to understand each topic in depth. Each quick activities were given from the lecture and these were discussed in the classes. Everything was available online. Module content was very interesting and lectures were very thorough to explain everything.
    Location:
    In Mile End. Accessible to wide range of food shops, city is very very closeby. Accessible by public transport and by car.
    Accommodation:
    Halls were nice and affordable.
    Settling in:
    Everyone especially fellow students are very friendly. Lectures make students feel very much comfortable.
  • Iqbal007's avatar by Iqbal007 on 11th September 2015
    Overall:
    I had a terrible experience, it may have been a combination of the course and the people I met. Though it did allow me to get into something which I enjoyed.
    University:
    The campus is lacking, very stretched, a lack of decent places to relax especially during the cold. Library: Only 24 hour during exam leave, nor is it big enough to accommodate the number of students. Shopping: Over priced campus shops Sport/fitness: Slightly better, loads of open sessions, although during semester almost impossible to get hold of the halls. Welfare/Provision: Personally though it was poor, the careers centre was bad and often providing very generic advice with little help. SU: Has some serious issues, a lot of dodgy politics
    Course:
    One of the worst parts of my life, it was terrible and lost motivation. Lack of adequate support from lecturers and to an extent some parts of the administration in the department were hostile to student feedback.
    Location:
    Plenty of stores nearby, plenty of halal stores, plenty of transport links to central London and access to major places like Stratford.
    Accommodation:
    Despite not living out, I am aware of the accommodation. University accommodation, is good and on campus, however there is a lack of it meaning many students miss out and there is not enough. Local housing to an extent can be good and cheap, although that may mean being a 0-15 minute away from the campus.
    Settling in:
    Never felt at home, certainly at times, though I felt slightly more at home at Barts campus then at QM, it just felt distance.

    Good, but hard to come by. I didn't get it & I'm from Birmingham!

  • babychocolate's avatar by babychocolate on 23rd August 2015

    4 stars
    University:
    Wide variety of nightlife related and unrelated to the university; it is London after all. 3 libraries available on all campus, two gyms
    Course:
    The course covers several styles of teaching to suit a wide range of teaching abilities. The is plenty of support available if needed and there is an real sense of community
    Location:
    Whitechapel campus is a 15 minute walk from the main campus. Can also be a bit grim and dirty to walk through
    Accommodation:
    Provided accommodation in the city for a low price which won't be achievable again however this was further away from campus. No ensuite room in the medical school accommodations
    Settling in:
    Made lots of friend in the medical school due the family mentally and the variety of clubs and sports available
  • preyat94's avatar by preyat94 on 23rd August 2015

    University:
    It's pretty awesome once you get settled in.
    Course:
    Amazing people and it's London. It's very vast and there is a lot to experience. East London, in term of accomodation and rent, is reasonable. Just learn how to manage your money and it'll be very awesome.
    Location:
    A lot of accesibility, 3 tube stations are within a 15 minute walking distance and there is a post office close by along with a Lidl, so you can save money quite easily. Also lots of restaurants.
    Accommodation:
    Search early. It's London so it's not the cheapest. The rooms I've lived have been nice. The people who live with you are probably the only problem you'll have, if you have one.
    Settling in:
    It took me a while to settle in for personal reasons but I settled in after 3 months since I have never lived by myself before. In my 2nd year I was fully settled in.

    Overall:
    Queen Mary University of London is a truly welcoming space. The campus offers everything you need and someone is always there to give you a hand, if you're in trouble.
    University:
    The campus is amazing and you can find everything you need. There are also plenty of societies, being impossible not to find one you'd like.
    Course:
    So far, all the tutors seem friendly and willing to help anyone out. The books we've been given to read are truly interesting and helpful.
    Location:
    Although it's not in the centre, there are two tube stations right next to the university and plenty of supermarkets. Moreover, the shopping district, where you can find everything you need, is just a few stops away. However, there are no pubs or clubs nearby, being a quieter region.
    Accommodation:
    Although the room and the bathroom are really nice, the carpet and the chair have some stains on them. Apart from that, the kitchen is great and there were no technical issues.
    Settling in:
    It was difficult as first, as it is being on your own for the first time, but the people are very friendly and everyone really tries to make you feel welcome.

    Course:
    Very informative, everything is given on an Queen Mary app so you don't miss any lecture notes.

  • Aleksandra.bal's avatar by Aleksandra.bal on 4th October 2015

    Queen Mary is a really great university where everyone takes care of the others. The lecturers are helpful and are thete for students when needed. Library, bookshops are well equipped so students have everything they need to study, the resources, quiet place to learn and obviously some nice cafes to spend time with friends.
    University:
    The library is really big and full of all the necessary books and other sources of infornation needed for studying. The computers and printers are avaliable so theres everything just in one place, around the corner, no need to look further. Students union are great fun. There are so many interesting ones of them that its hard to decide which ones to join, and apparently You have to pick some of them only.
    Course:
    It's really interesting but I didnt expect it to be phisics focused to that extent.
    Location:
    Its quite close to the Central London, not that far by tube or bus. There are a lot of shops around the campus, Sainsbury's it just on the opposite side and Costa is 3min by walk so very convenient for coffee lovers.
    Accommodation:
    Its affordable, on the campus where all the lectures as held so theres no need to travel and spend time on bus or tube. Quality is very good, over my expectations to be honest everything is new, neat and rooms are cosy

    All the people there are kind, the staff is helpful and the senior students also engage us to take part in many entertaining events.

    Overall:
    At the moment, I would rate the university 4 stars. Maybe at the end of the year, I would rate the university 5 stars.
    University:
    The library facility is excellent. They have many copies of the book. The only thing I would say is they should make the time period for borrowing books much longer. The shops within the campus are very expensive. 90p for a 50ml of water ! Saying that they do sell a cheap lab coat.
    Course:
    The quality is very good but some of the lectures aren't as clear. But out of 5, only one lecture I don't quite understand. Maybe I just need to get used to her. Also I do find this module particularly challenging.
    Location:
    This is my home town and it's the capital!
    Accommodation:
    I don't live on campus. I commute but I have been told by my fellow peers that the accommodation is fantastic and clean. It's fairly cheap for a accommodation based in London.
    Settling in:
    It took me awhile to make friends. Also, for the first week I was late to all my lectures because I never knew where I was going. The Mile End campus is sooo confusing.

    University:
    Always something to do that's affordable for every person.
    Course:
    If you're into experimental and theoretical based work this is the courSe for you. Friendly tutors, great module content and manageable timetable.
    Location:
    It's in London but not completely central which allows you to relax a but more. You don't have to be in the centre all the time, you can just stay on campus.

    University:
    Brilliant services both academically and leisurely. The library hours are great so I can study before and after classes
    Course:
    Everyone, all staff and students, are so helpful and friendly. They guide you and nourish you into becoming not just a better student and scholar but a better self. And I think you can't get much better than that. The modules are great as well as the hours. It's a brilliant transition from a level to degree level.

    It's in London so it's great but the area is a bit scary at night.

    University:
    Good facilities and services not much to complain about, decent gym, its all down to whatever you do really.
    Course:
    Overall a good uni, sometimes timetables can be annoying as you are given 5 days a week when it could have been fitted into fewer days.
    Location:
    Close to central london and very close to west field. Also close enough to the regular towns so you can get parking and take a quick train journey straight to the campus.

  • starrymoon's avatar by starrymoon on 30th September 2015
    Overall:
    University is okay but does not live up to the hype that was expected. Socially, a non-London uni that has smaller course sizes would be easier to settle into.
    University:
    The societies are interesting and very social. There are also many events to get involved with. However, it is harder for those who commute to get involved in all social gatherings.
    Course:
    The lecturers need to be more engaging with the students. However, so far, I do feel as if we are learning at a good pace and the information is interesting.
    Location:
    Does not have much activities nearby but the campus feel of the university is great.
    Accommodation:
    Very poor; they are unable to offer accommodation to nearly all people living in London.
    Settling in:
    I made friends initially, however I found it hard to keep track because of the number of people on my course. Now, however it seems to have settled down slightly.

    Great nightlife in London and also on campus. Only campus uni in London which provides a calm refuge from the hustle and bustle of the city! so much going on in the campus, as restaurants and cafes as well as a club and bar on campus and convenient shops and banks. Also a fantastically equipped gym. The student union is fantastic and has so many societies to cater for all! I love the fantastic sports socities which are cheap and provide a great way to get fit!
    Course:
    Fantastic course content, lecturers are amaizing and supportive. They are taking part in new research in the field of geography which greatly benefits my own knowledge. The field trips are amaizing and we use London as a classroom which is really interactive and interesting! There are so many support systems in place.
    Location:
    Between bustling global city of London and up and coming east London. fantastic night life, many work experience opportunities in both the city and canary wharf and also central London. It is a campus university so everything Is easily accessible. Beautiful large park next door to campus which is very peaceful, athletics ground down the road and canal right next to the uni which is very tranquil and relaxing. Easy access to central London which has large amount of history and is a global city and the capital is incorporated into the geography course making it very interactive and engaging!

    It's a great uni and continuing to develop. The engineering department need to understand that it's the students that keep it alive not the staff so respect us as much as you respect them. Increasing facilities for engineers. Overall it is a good uni
    University:
    I haven't been to other unis but I hear that QMs uni life is average
    Course:
    The quality of teaching in most of the lectures are 5 star worth. The majority of lecturers deserve 5 stars but there's always them few modules and lectures that let it down. Also the feedback and support from the department is ridiculous, they don't respect students nor do they care about them.
    Location:
    In the best location for food, close to central but not paying central London prices. Good transport links.
    Accommodation:
    I have only visited friends accommodation, the rooms are small but all my friends were satisfied with it. They paid reasonably, abit expensive because it was at the universities door step but overall it was 4star worth.

    I really enjoyed my course despite the few minor drawbacks. A campus uni in London that's Russell group and rated 1st for Law in London - what more could you want?!
    University:
    Loads of coffee shops at good prices, library was really good, lovely campus atmosphere.
    Course:
    Generally well organised and feedback was always good.
    Location:
    Easy to get to but I didn't always feel that safe walking home at night. Campus felt safe though and there was lots of affordable accommodation nearby.

    Due to the location the expenses might be a little more than others but its all worth it. The experince you'll have while studying here will be cherished for ever with absolutely no regret.
    University:
    Uni life is always full of joy and excitement as the university and the area have so much to offer. There's many students unions that are highly active and always promoting their agenda and activities all around the year. Massive gym with latest equipments right in the heart of university, spacious bar with events almost every night and so much more.
    Course:
    The lecture halls are all world class with recording and online viewing facility, lecturers are highly qualified and specially knows how to deliver the knowledge to students. There's plenty of help and resources available for all students that includes seminers and mentoring services.
    Location:
    it's located just 5 minutes from central London, the area has so much to offer that you'll never run out things to experience while studying. Canal boats, go carts, vibrant nightlife, fashion, dine out, biking and the list goes on.
    Accommodation:
    Although I didn't live on campus, I have been to many of the accomodations and they're of high quality, clean and tidy, modern halls that are literally 30 seconds from the main campus. All kinds of shops and restaurants are also just a short walking distance.
    Settling in:
    It has a very diverse community and comprised of people from all races, ethnicities and countries. People here are always friendly and very easy to get along with. The university starts to feel like home within a month after starting the course and the stuffs are always there to help you out with a smile.

    Queen Mary is a great university, with a good balance between studies and life. The community there is very friendly too and international students especially should settle in quite quickly.
    University:
    There is a wide variety of clubs and societies we can join, and the gym is well-furnished and equipped. The medical library is also well stocked and it's quite easy to find the textbooks we need there.
    Course:
    Lectures so far have been insightful, and I quite enjoy the small group setting of PBL sessions. The content so far has also been quite manageable and the pace of study is reasonable.
    Location:
    I like the fact that it is in London, close enough to all the entertainment and culture, but far enough not to have all those temptations on your doorstep. The only gripe is that the East End is a bit more dodgy than say, the west end, so it may not feel as pleasant walking around the area.

    University is really good, you would love it here (mainly because of its in London), however I highly recommend a visit before you apply. Personally I don't like the location in London the uni is situated, could have picked a better spot. Overall its really good, all the necessities are at close proximity and you will meet so many different types of people from different countries.
    University:
    The services offered are great in Uni, all of them are at close proximity. They are well organised and utilised.
    Course:
    Module content is very good, quality of teaching is good but not the best.

    Overall:
    My university experience has been good. I would've liked a thorough explanation of the differences between A Level history and university history at the start of my degree. There are many societies to join and the advice and counselling teams are also helpful.
    University:
    The university has a good gym. The library is too small and it is hard to find a desk to us during exam period. The library's opening hours are also limited.
    Course:
    The seminar tutors are extremely helpful and respond quickly to emails. The lectures are of a high standard and engaging.
    Location:
    My university is close to central London so it's easy to access. However, as it is on a main road out is extremely noisy. Our seminars are often disrupted by the sounds of police cars and ambulances.
    Accommodation:
    I can't comment on the quality as I commute from home. However, the location of the student accommodation is amazing as it's on campus. The prices are good and the security is good.

    Overall:
    A fantastic university and definitely a positive experience, all facts considered Queen Mary University of London is the best choice for anyone who wants to experience academic excellency and to develop as an individual through academic and social activities.
    University:
    Societies that cover every need, clubs that allow students to socialise, a state-of-the-art gym and a fantastic library located right in the heart of the campus
    Course:
    The course structure, the academic staff and the content of the modules reflects the quality of the School of Law at QMUL
    Location:
    Fantastic location, near the Mile End Underground station, local shops cover the daily needs of the student, Campus feeling despite being in London: it seems like a student gets the best of both worlds
    Accommodation:
    En-suite rooms for the majority of first-years, clean, rooms provided with their own mini-fridges, fantastic location that allows the student to reach the facilities that Queen Mary has to offer quickly and without difficulty. Given that the university is located in one of the most expensive cities in the world, the rooms are widely considered affordable.
    Settling in:
    The academic staff provides guidance that helps the student to quickly adapt to the pace of university studies. Services such as the Residential Support are useful as well.

  • by Anonymous on 4th October 2015
    Overall:
    I think being in London has a big impact upon the life and the atmosphere of queen mary. it offers diversity and allows you to experience real life, but at the same time perhaps does not give back the university experience some students look for.
    University:
    Good gym and a sports hall. Good sports community within the sport clubs. Student union small but enjoyable, always something going on in there. Shops on campus and close by very good. Overall campus is quiet and lacks atmosphere, perhaps from being in london and having many commuting students.
    Course:
    I enjoy the content of the course and range of module choices. I think it's fantastic that in second and third year we are able to entirely choose our own modules to follow our interests. The course seems very diverse, and really enables you to decide which bit of business you are interested in, which should help with a career choice; which is one the reasons I chose to study this course at QM. However, I find overall the school of business and management have been disorganised and dysfinctional with regards to timetables and mid term exams in particular. Although a great course in terms of content this aspect would really affect any recommendation I gave about this course/uni.
    Location:
    London is a fantastic place to be, with so much opportunity surrounding you. However the university is situated in not such a nice area of london, however very close to Central London and with good tube links.
    Accommodation:
    Affordable housing for london, very well maintained. Had fantastic views over the city and canary wharf from my halls, as well as a private fridge and bathroom with bath. However, The rooms could have been greatly improved with a double bed. The halls are on campus and next door to a tube station and the lecture halls.
    Settling in:
    as a home student I found the "internationalness" of the uni quite intimidating, it didn't have the friendly open feel of my friends university's I have visited such as Exeter and loughborough. I felt in order to settle in it is really important to seek out societies and events, as there aren't very many and there is little opportunity to socialise on my course as the hours are so short.

    4.5 stars, not perfect, but it's moving up the league tables and the uni really care about their teaching. Not laying on its laurels as a new uni which has to prove itself, which it is.

    The campus is always lovely and moving. The facilities are always on hand to use and I have really enjoyed the student union activities.
    Course:
    Having such a deep love for languages, I find the professors here so intuned with their fields and so interested and passionate about what they teach. The whole course is everything I had hoped for and more.
    Location:
    At a great part of London which is very close and easily connected to other parts of east and central London, but tube and by bus.
    Accommodation:
    The flat is good quality, excellent location on campus and the amount of people sharing the flat is very ideal. However, I feel it is a little too expensive.
    Settling in:
    The transition was so smooth, the welcome week team were always around campus to help and everything was so clearly organised and told to us.

    Course:
    The university provides support and it's got a fun atmosphere to it. The seminars seem to be informative and have a touch of humour and I personally think it's worth every penny of the nine thousand pounds a year. It's a Russell Group, it has good prospects and the people are nice and varied.

    I live quite close. It's in Mile End (Zone 2 TFL) hence cheaper to get to than a Central London uni.

    I do not live in such but from what I have heard from others, it's good!

    It is a fun university with good events and oppertunities to get to know people.

    It's a great University. really hard to knock it for the course. Can't help being in London, the prices are what they are.
    University:
    Plenty of time to factor everything in. Wednesdays off. Myriad of opportunities if you find and take them!

    Everything is readily available, you just have to put a lot of effort in in order to get the most out of the course.

    9/10 London is expensive but the amount of culture you're exposed to is unparalleled as well as being under the wing of tutors from all over the world. Queen Mary is especially quirky with its interdisciplinary modules, graveyard, canal and sculptures and the east end is probably the hippest part of London!
    University:
    So many societies and events on campus as well as intercollegiate ones being accessible too!
    Course:
    Great syllabus, that offers an international spectrum of study. Most other universities only offer colonial history. The campus is really friendly and quirky as are the tutors!
    Location:
    Everyday London is convenient and much quieter, East London is really trendy with lots to do and see but the centre is also easily reached. Because we're out of zone 1 the cost of food etc is lower. More authentic and less touristy.
    Accommodation:
    Housing is good but there isn't enough for all first years!!!

    My university experience was difficult, but don't let that discourage you. My university was always understanding and most of all, it was fun. I love Queen Mary's and I would rate them 5 stars overall.
    University:
    I didn't experience much of 'uni life' personally, but I'm sure it was great for the people on the campus
    Course:
    The course was well balanced with essential staples to learning about English Literature, and interesting, fun and exciting new ideas and tasks

    my room was too small so it was very difficult for me to live comfortably

    A great uni if you want to be in London but within close proximity to the uni as it is a campus. There's absolutely no problem making new friends as everyone is very friendly. Students here are very hard working and lecturers communicate well if you have any concerns. There are so many societies to suit any interests and sports clubs that you can join either for fun or competitively. QM is close to Westfield Stratford City- a massive shopping centre so if you're looking for somewhere good to shop/eat, it's only a stop away on the tube.
    University:
    My uni has so many societies and clubs. However gym memberships are expensive
    Course:
    Because I get enough hours, workload anf good teaching

    5 stars. I think it is the best university in terms of its location, style of teaching and the societies. Everyone is welcoming and helpful. The university itself has many facilities for its students. There are alot of shops, buses, train stations/dlr and restaurants around the university.
    University:
    I prefered to study at uni than at home due to the quiet study areas in the library. The societies were great. Student union were very supportive also as they helped us a lot.
    Course:
    There isn't anything I would change. The teaching quality is great, as well as the seminars etc. Although we are independent our advisors and lecturers are very helpful compared to other universities that I have heard of

    There are stations, shops, restaurants etc very close by to the university. There's also a canal area where you can take a break from your studies and relax.

    University:
    There are so many opportunities to get involved with societies both academic and social. I have made so many friends in all years over the past year and had lots of opportunities to take responsibilities in various societies.
    Course:
    I have loved my first year at QM. It's a fantastic place with top quality teaching and a first class social scene. It's a uni that welcomes everyone from all sorts of backgrounds and I wouldn't dream of being anywhere else.
    Location:
    It's in a great location in that it's not in central London but it's very near. Also the campus at QM is also excellent for a London uni l.
    Accommodation:
    Although I have enjoyed my year in halls and lived with some fantastic people, the place I stayed was quite old, for example the bathroom had quite a lot of mould in it and could do with a renovation.

    If i could go back to when I first applied, I would still choose to come here! It's a great course and place to be in. Thoroughly recommend it.
    University:
    Lots of activities and opportunities to get involved on campus, it's just that as a medical student, you don't get much free time. But there is plenty to do .
    Course:
    It's pretty much everything I thought it'd be. I dropped one star because I feel like they could have prepared us a little more for the step up between school and uni
    Location:
    It's great. Based within London and it's really easy to reach all the tourist places and central London itself. Of course the area itself isn't the best in London, but to compensate, it's much cheaper than living within central London itself. You can reach central London within 15 mins.
    Accommodation:
    For the fact that it was accommodation in London, it was pretty cheap in comparison. The halls definitely need upgrading. But I lived only 2 mins down the road from lectures so it was pretty good.

    Settled in pretty quick. But i feel like this is very much up to the individual. I settled in within a week or so, I know that it took some weeks to get used to uni.

    5*. Uni that has a strong sense of community and pride in itself. Good facilities/interesting modules.
    University:
    Always things to do, uni activities often cheap/free. Maybe not enough to do for students who don't drink/would prefer daytime activities.
    Course:
    Lectures always relatively interesting, with interesting seminar work set. Little guidance from TAs during seminars though, who always seem v underprepared. Also, no follow-ups from a pastoral point of view in terms of finding out why students might be missing seminars/not handing in essays.
    Location:
    Relatively central London location, near East End so always interesting stuff to do.

    Housing was excellent - regular cleaning of communal areas along with excellent facilities. Let down by high price, even by London standards.
