Welcome to the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science at Queen Mary, University of London. We welcome students from all over the world and have a mixed and varied student population.
The Study Abroad Scheme is for students outside Europe who would like to come to Queen Mary for a Semester or academic year. To find out more please see the Study Abroad Pages.
The Erasmus scheme allows European students to spend time in another Higher Educational Institution within Europe. To find out more please see the Erasmus students page.
For those Erasmus students looking to carry out research work during their stay, you will need to agree a project before you return this form. Please contact us with information on the project work you are interested in, so we can look for a suitable supervisor to work with you.
The College's current policy on tuition fees is set out on the central international students fees page. In addition, the Advice and Counselling Service has lots of useful information on money matters.
In recognition of the important investment that overseas students are making in their education, we are pleased to offer International Science and Engineering Excellence Awards, new for 2013 entry. These awards are for the value of either £2,000 or £5,000 per year and are designed to reward academic achievement and help attract the brightest and best students from overseas.
International Science and Engineering Excellence Awards will be deducted directly from tuition fees payable to the College.
The level of award that a student may be eligible to receive will be based on previous academic attainment.
- To be eligible to receive an award of £2,000 students must be on track to meet or exceed our minimum entry requirements for the programme of their choice at the point of offer.
- To be eligible to receive an award of £5,000 per year, students must hold AAA in UK A-levels or the international equivalent.
There is no need to complete a separate application form to be considered for an International Science and Engineering Excellence Award. Students will be considered for an award on the basis of their online application to Queen Mary.
For more information, please see the central college pages about eligibility and equivalencies.
If your qualifications are not suitable for entry to the degree programme you may be interested in one of our foundation programmes.

"I love being at Queen Mary."Read more
"It's in the heart of East London and there’s a great atmosphere. It’s part of the University of London, which carries weight with prospective employers, and it has great facilities. There is a building completely dedicated to computing students, and it's open really late.
When I first started my degree, I didn't really understand the difference between computer science and computing, and the course was more mathematics-based than I expected. I still loved it though.
I started my third year not knowing much about multimedia, but by the end of the year I had found a vocation! For my final-year project, I developed software that teaches people British Sign Language (BSL). I contacted an established company who assisted me in filming the BSL videos and they also provided me with a large number of test subjects. They were extremely impressed with what I had achieved and offered me a contract to commercialise the product and future publications! It has been a real roller coaster of excitement and hard work, but in the end it has been an amazing experience. I now love designing and producing any kind of multimedia product, be it through programming or with the use of applications such as Macromedia Director."
