Additional info

Alongside our global research excellence, we have a strong commitment to our London environment. Queen Mary spans London's diverse districts. Two of our 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. We have 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, our 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.

Our 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 our Graduate School of Law and the world-famous Centre for Commercial Law Studies.

We offer two Joint Degree Programmes to a projected population of 2,000 students in Beijing, in collaboration with our 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 our 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 we place on our 2,800 international students.
