Applying to Study English

We are a large department with a strong sense of community, and we welcome a diverse range of students onto our innovative degree programmes: of all ages, from all backgrounds, and from all across the world.

Our entry requirements are set to make our degrees open to an unusually wide band of students. We assess each application very carefully, using not only grades and predicted grades, but also your personal statement and reference, to try to get a real sense of your potential as a student of English.

If we make you an offer we’ll invite you to come to Queen Mary to meet us and learn more about studying with us. These days will typically include a ‘taster’ lecture, a chance to meet our current students, and opportunity to discuss studying at QM with members of our academic staff. We want you to get to know us first hand, and help you decide whether English at Queen Mary is right for you.

All applications, including those from international and mature students, should be made through the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS). The institution code for Queen Mary, University of London is Q50.
