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 decided to go to Queen Mary, as it is part of the University of London and a UCAS student advisor recommended it to me. Having taken a closer look at the campus, I really liked its close proximity to the centre of London, the liveliness of the halls of residence and the diversity of people at the university.
The Computer Science Department is a great place to study. From the staff in the student administration and system support teams, to the lecturers and professors, all are excellent at their jobs and are very helpful. The course provides a good mixture of theoretical grounding and practical expertise. It offers students a good foundation in the core principles of computer science and then the option to focus more on specific subject areas in later years.
My experiences with Queen Mary lecturers and professors have been positive throughout. I found my lecturers very engaging and enthusiastic about the subjects they taught. For me, that is the most important thing, to be surrounded and taught by people that inspire you with their interest and knowledge of a subject.
One of the most interesting things I have done on the course was my final year project. My project was selected by the university to be considered for a patent application and commercialisation. This involved working with my supervisor and the university’s technology transfer team to develop the patent application and start approaching companies that might be interested in licensing the technology.
The Queen Mary campus offers a unique atmosphere. It’s a great mixture of a safe and relaxed space situated in an exciting area full of possibilities for day and night time activities. My favourite place is the bank of Regent’s Canal behind the student halls.
There are a lot of extra-curricular activities on offer at Queen Mary. I volunteered to take part in the Peer Assisted Study Support programme as a PASS Mentor during my final year. It was a really enjoyable experience and I think the skills I learned through the PASS training programme and running PASS sessions are extremely valuable. It’s a good way to get in contact with other enthusiastic people in the department and work together with them. I hope to continue these activities at Oxford University where I am now doing a postgraduate degree.
If I had to describe a typical Queen Mary student, well that might be difficult, as Queen Mary has a widely diverse student population. You meet people from all over the world, coming from very different cultural backgrounds but who are equally open minded and interested in new experiences.
