About Queen Mary Summer School

Queen Mary University of London is one of the UK's leading research universities, committed to improving social justice and achieving the previously unthinkable. A Russell Group university based in east London, we teach across the full disciplinary spectrum. With staff and students from over 160 nationalities, we are one of the most diverse higher education institutions in the world. Queen Mary is currently ranked at 14th in the UK and 5th in London (Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2018).

Our Summer School programme features a broad range courses, put together by our world-class academics in a variety of disciplines. You can specialise according to your interests, knowing that each session will be thought-provoking, challenging and exciting in equal measure. Session 1 of the Summer School takes place from 1 July to 19 July 2019, and session 2 takes place from 22 July to 9 August 2019. Students are welcome to attend both sessions, so if you’d like to combine an interest in particle physics with your love of horror films, you can!
