Student Story: My Experience at QMUL in London

Queen Mary, University of London is part of the University of London. Over 5,000 of it’s students are from overseas which gives the college a cosmopolitan environment that is welcoming to students from all over the world. Offering a range of courses, from Aerospace Engineering to Zoology, QMUL has something to suit everybody. Shruthi Murthy is a student at QMUL studying a Master of Science full-time in Medical Electronics and Physics. Originally from India, Shruthi shares her experiences on studying in London at Queen Mary.

“Firstly I would love to say that Queen Mary is the renowned university and provides all support to the students like career services, advice and counselling, library services, sports club etc. QMUL holds a very good ranking not only in UK but also among all universities in the world.

London is a wonderful and a remarkable place and has its own charm. Therefore QM as a university of London and its location was a perfect combination for me to choose my speciality, Medical Electronics and Physics. The QM campus is very vibrant and it has added flavour to Mile end.

In my department, the academic staffs are very well versed in respective fields and are capable enough to answer all students’ questions. They motivate students and my personal tutor is helpful.  MSc degree provided me almost all the exposure I needed. I was given an opportunity to visit Cancer Institute to upgrade my knowledge. The modules gave me an overall idea of what subjects are about. The modules are really exciting and challenging at the same time. The course is well structured and also covers job prospects.

My decision regarding accommodation within QM campus served my purpose and was satisfactory. I was lucky to have great flatmates who created homely atmosphere. I made friends with people from other nationalities which was enjoyable and helped to improve my interpersonal skills and personal development. I would say QM accommodation is the safest and the best place to live.

Whenever I walk in campus I remember each precious moment spent here. It was my sweetest experience ever. Time moved really fast. I felt it was worth studying MSc in Medical Electronics and Physics at QMUL. I am confident of getting better job opportunities after passing out. I would like to thank Advice and counselling department for solving my problems with respect to immigration issues and International office for guiding me properly.

I really enjoyed my student life completely here. Now I consider myself to be a part of QMUL. I would recommend students to choose QMUL.”
