IES Abroad’s mission is simple: to provide you with the best study abroad program possible—which includes the highest quality academic and cultural experiences. That is why we partnered with Queen Mary, University of London.
Queen Mary, University of London
Queen Mary offers you the best of two worlds: the bustling city of London and a self-contained, thriving campus. Located in the diverse East End, QM maintains its own identity and community, and yet you are never more than a convenient Tube ride to the center of London.
As a large institution (more than 16,000 students), QM offers an extensive range of challenging academic options. In addition, the college has a long history of internationalism: 20 percent of the student body comes from outside the United Kingdom, with more than 100 countries represented in the international student population.
Academic life at QM involves a range of instructional styles (lectures, seminars, tutorials) as well as assessment methods (exams, essays, projects.). The college is widely recognized for excellence in both research and teaching, and you are expected to contribute to the lively learning environment.
You are welcome to enroll in classes in any academic department, although certain classes may have prerequisites. Current course listings are available on the University's Directory of Modules.
When you filter the course selections in the Directory of Modules, please refer to the following guidelines. More information can be found under the “guidance notes” link on the main page, as well.

East of central London, QM’s campus is located in Mile End, one of London’s most ethnically and socially diverse neighborhoods. The campus is self-contained, but students take full advantage of the many opportunities to experience the incredible variety of local cultural offerings.
