The Queen Mary, University of London (QMUL) England is delighted to offer Michael Essien (2007 African footballer of the year 2nd Runner up) Scholarship for African students who are planning to commence their undergraduate and postgraduate taught programme from January 2019.
Queen Mary has a rich and diverse heritage and is one of the largest colleges of the University of London, with 25,120 undergraduate and postgraduate students studying across the humanities and social sciences, science and engineering, and medicine and dentistry.
Queen Mary was founded as The People’s Palace in 1887 to provide education, culture and recreation to the people of the East End. Quickly, its students excelled and by 1915 it joined The University of London as East London College.
Decades on and with teaching, learning and research continuing to thrive, the College was awarded its Royal Charter in 1934 and named Queen Mary College. Two historic medical schools joined Queen Mary in 1995, and so today it is home to Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry too. In 2017, QMUL launched a new medical school in Malta and it offers programmes in China, Paris, Greece and Singapore.
Queen Mary has an outstanding international reputation for research. In the latest Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014), it was ranked ninth in the UK amongst multi-faculty institutions for the quality of its research. QMUL has recently invested £105m in new facilities to give its students the best possible environment to learn and its new Graduate Centre opened in Mile End in 2017.
QMUL’s latest teaching innovation launched in 2017 and students joining the university will find modules embedded within their programmes that will expand their skills beyond their subject knowledge. This new initiative will continue to expand each year, so whether students want to develop their business and entrepreneurial skills, explore global perspectives, or understand social and ethical issues, there will be new opportunities within their studies to get valuable experience and develop new and exciting skills.
Looking to 2018, QMUL will be welcoming students on to its new Summer School programme where international students can join us for three- or six-week periods. Modules cover subjects from across our specialisms from politics to particle physics, international business to cinema and theatre.
Queen Mary alumni gain access to the Alumni Portal which allows them to make contact with friends, book on to events, organise reunions, and gain library membership.
