Overview

LondonQueen Mary, University of London

The Rollins Semester program at Queen Mary, University of London provides students the opportunity to study for the semester or the full academic year at an institution rated among the top fifteen in the United Kingdom. Queen Mary University of London is one of the four largest colleges of the University of London and is located in the vibrant and diverse East End neighborhood of London and is unique to central London institutions due to its lovely and contained urban campus close to all London has to offer.  Rollins students will have access to a wide variety of courses in a broad range of fields including: English, Drama, Film, Biological Sciences, Psychology, History and Political Science.  Students live in dormitories on the Queen Mary campus and are fully integrated into University life with opportunities to become involved in student clubs, teams, and activities and participate in all campus events.

The East End is one of the most vibrant, exciting and culturally diverse areas of London. There is something for everyone: street markets, parks, cafes, restaurants, pubs, museums and galleries. Brick Lane, which is in walking distance from the campus, is famous for its eclectic market, Indian restaurants, 24 hour bagel shops and is also now home to a growing number of artists and designers. It may not be the most famous area of the city, but it is certainly worth getting to know.
