Queen Mary University of London
Queen Mary University of London is one of the UK's leading research universities, committed to improving social justice and achieving the previously unthinkable.
Starting life in 1887 as the People’s Palace, a Victorian philanthropic project, Queen Mary has always aimed to transform the lives of the working people of the East End through education, recreation and culture. The university has grown considerably since its origins, joining with the distinguished medical colleges of St Bartholomew’s (est. 1123) and the Royal London Hospitals (est. 1740) to form our Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry.
Now, we are a Russell Group university based in east London, teaching across the full disciplinary spectrum. With staff and students from over 160 nationalities, we are one of the most diverse higher education institutions in the world.

Studying at the Queen Mary Summer School not only offers you the opportunity to study at one of the top universities in the UK, it also gives you the chance to experience life as a Londoner.
As a Queen Mary Summer School student, you will be offered a place on campus in our comfortable accommodation. You’ll have an en-suite single room in one of our self-catering flats, so you can meet other students and make friends while you are here.
Our modern campus is a peaceful oasis in a busy city, set beside the Regent’s Canal, looking on to Mile End Park. It has a friendly, relaxed atmosphere: with plenty of greenery and attractive outdoor spaces here, so it’s easy to forget that you’re in the middle of a busy capital city. We hope that it will soon feel like your London home.
Our campus has a friendly community of staff and students, and is noted for its safety and convenience. You’ll just be a short walk away from your classes. On campus, we also have two grocery shops, four cafés, two restaurants, a bar, a health and fitness centre, a bookshop and a bank. As a Summer School student, you will have full access to all of these facilities.
Summer School accommodation is managed centrally by the Queen Mary residences team. If you indicate that you would like on-campus accommodation on your application form, you will be added to a reservation list. Once you have accepted your offer and paid your tuition fees, you will be contacted by them with details of how to book a room on campus when booking opens in mid-March.
