Queen Mary is one of the largest College's of the internationally renowned University of London. The Study Abroad programme is a fully integrated experience allowing you to live and learn with students from the UK and from many other countries around the world. Queen Mary is based on an urban campus in London's East End - close to the centre of the city - and is served by two underground stops giving easy access to all of London’s attractions. A modular course system allows visiting students to create a schedule combining courses from the faculties of Humanities, Social Sciences and Law and Science and Engineering.

The closest underground station is Mile End, which is a 5 minute walk from the campus. The East End is one of the oldest and most vibrant, exciting and culturally diverse areas of London. There is something for everyone: street markets, parks, cafes, restaurants, pubs, museums and galleries. Brick Lane, which is in walking distance from the campus, is famous for its eclectic market, Indian restaurants, 24 hour bagel shops and is also now home to a growing number of artists and designers. The Queen Mary campus is one mile east of London's financial zone - The City, one mile north of the Docklands financial centre and one mile west of the site of the 2012 Olympics.
