Our research excellence
Queen Mary has made a strategic commitment to the highest quality of research. We have invested in this principle by systematically recruiting the best academics in their disciplines from around the world. The results of the most recent national assessment of research – the Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014) – have confirmed our place in the very top group of research-led universities in the UK. Overall we were ranked 9th in the UK among multi-faculty universities and 5th in the UK for the percentage of our 3* and 4* research outputs.
Queen Mary is one of 24 leading UK universities represented by the Russell Group, that are committed to maintaining the very best research, an outstanding teaching and learning experience, excellent graduate employability and unrivalled links with business and the public sector.
High-quality learning experience
Queen Mary offers outstanding students a stimulating, supportive and high-quality learning experience, with teaching inspired by our world-leading research. We have also invested more than £250m in new facilities over the last fifteen years to offer our students an exceptional learning environment. This is reflected in our consistently high levels of student satisfaction. In the most recent National Student Survey (NSS 2015), 88 per cent of our undergraduates expressed 'overall satisfaction' with their time here, with twelve subjects in the top three in London.
Queen Mary University of London is based in one of the world’s truly global cities and our international community reflects this. We have students and staff from 155 countries and our partnerships and activities around the world allow us to deliver teaching and research with an international dimension and impact.
