Queen Mary has been ranked in the top 14 universities in the UK and in the top 100 in the world.Queen Mary, University of London is one of London and the UK's leading research-focused higher education institutions. Amongst the largest of the colleges of the University of London, Queen Mary's 2,800 staff deliver world class degree programmes and research across a wide range of subjects in Humanities, Social Sciences and Law, in Medicine and Dentistry and in Science and Engineering. With a budget of £200 million per annum and a yearly economic impact on the UK economy of some £500 million, Queen Mary offers a strong and diverse environment to its 13,000 students. Having made a £200 million investment in facilities, Queen Mary is unique amongst London's universities in being able to offer a completely integrated residential campus, with a 2,000-bed award-winning Student Village on its Mile End site. Queen Mary, as a member of the 1994 Group of research-focused universities, has made a strategic commitment to the highest quality of research, but also to the best possible educational, cultural and social experience for its students. Indeed, the university believes that a vibrant research environment means that the students have access to the world's leading experts in their chosen subjects. Queen Mary's distinctiveness also arises from its commitment to an engagement with international excellence in education and research and a twin commitment to bring that engagement to bear on its London and Thames Gateway environment through educational outreach and knowledge transfer projects. Queen Mary's locations span London's diverse districts. Two of the four campuses are in east London, in the Borough of Tower Hamlets between The City and Canary Wharf, a multicultural and socially diverse area that is one of the most rapidly developing parts of London. Queen Mary has the advantage of being the London research-focused university closest to the site of the 2012 Olympic Games, only two miles from the Mile End site, the university’s main residential campus. Whitechapel is home to part of Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry, focused on the stunning Will Alsop Blizard Building, housing the largest open plan laboratories in Europe. The other campuses are in central London: at Charterhouse Square and Barts Hospital, on the edge of the City of London, the key financial district, one of the two campuses of Barts and The London Medical School; and at Lincoln's Inn Fields, in London's Legal District, the home for the Graduate School of Law and the world-famous Centre for Commercial Law Studies. In addition to the London locations, Queen Mary offers two Joint Degree Programmes to a projected population of 2,000 students in Beijing, in collaboration with its close partners, Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications (BUPT), the first such programmes to be approved by the Chinese Ministry of Education. These programmes are a key component of the comprehensive International Strategy, which is focused around the concepts of partnership and a sustainable involvement in a range of countries around the world, as well as the value the university places on its 2,800 international students. Although the size and diversity of Queen Mary gives it all the characteristics and facilities of a university in its own right, it is also part of the federal University of London, a wide-ranging body comprising some 40 academic institutions and 120,000 students. Together, these make it the largest and most diverse university in the country. It also means that, although Queen Mary is a self-governing institution, its students are able to take advantage of the wide and varied educational and social facilities of the University of London. These include the Senate House library, which contains more than 1.4 million volumes, and the University of London Union (ULU), which is amongst the most active and lively in the country. Queen Mary has been ranked in the top 14 universities in the UK and in the top 100 in the world. The university has consistently been in the top group of universities for year on year increases in funding from the Higher Education Funding Council. The university achieved an outstanding performance in the 2001 Research Assessment Exercise, with 80 per cent of staff in departments assessed as being of international or national excellence. Queen Mary staff members have been honoured by election to Fellowships of the Royal Society, the British Academy, the Royal Academy of Medical Science and the Royal Academy of Engineering.
