The Physics department at QMUL is second to none! The student support, facilities, teaching and organisation are spot on!

Have had the best time here and developed so many skills.

I really enjoyed M208 which was challenging at times but the feeling when it "clicks" was great.

My advice to anyone would be that you do need to spend a lot of time with it and the key to the exam is: past papers, past papers, past papers!

The moderators on the forum were fantastic - when do these people sleep?! I would post a question late in the evening and a response would soon be posted.

Go to the tutorials if possible, there are some concepts in pure maths that just need a different "voice" and then it all becomes apparent

The course is fundamental in terms of the basics of a computer science and allows you to understand how the knowledge acquired can be used in a variety of different of ways. The structure of the majority of the module is 30% coursework and the remainder is examination, however, there are many exams during the summer and I believe it does not help the student maximise their potential.

The Degree is very interesting and has an overall good structure. Well balanced between design and Engineering even though I would ask for more Mathematics Modules. The Design part is amazing and a really good fun. You get to be very creative and you learn a lot theoughout the degree.

This course is currently very insightful and rounded. Within the course, you will study many different areas of French and Hispanic culture and history, ranging from linguistics to philosophy to history to poetry, with the possibility of being able to take up Catalan or Portuguese as well if you so please (although this hinders your choices for other modules quite drastically so you are quite fixed if you choose to do them). The teachers are mainly very helpful and organised, although the Spanish department can sometimes be rather disorganised and uncertain.

Whenever people ask me about university, my immediate response is how much I love my course. There is an endlessly wide variety of modules you can choose and I love the freedom of picking topics I didn't think would be available, from the medieval ages right up to present day. The assessment is 95% coursework which suits me perfectly and depending on what modules you choose, there are a number of field trips in centre London and to the rest of the UK which are always fun and interesting in how they relate to the course. The teachers at Queen Mary really do know their stuff, and part of why I love my course so much is because the people teaching me love what they're teaching. Their passion comes out and makes what can be difficult content easier and even more engaging. If you love the variety of doing an English degree, Queen Mary is definitely a good choice.

I graduated from QM in 2016 and had a job offer for a graduate scheme before my final exams. My experience with QM has been wonderful, however not due to the Business School. The university is brilliant with multicultural staff and students in the middle of the best part of London. The Business School is unorganised and managed poorly, however the modules allows you to specialise in whatever direction you see yourself and also connect with other departments if you apply. Many great offers for exchange programmes abroad and the school helps you with finding internships and working opportunities. Some of the lecturers are old fashioned in their teaching approach, but the majority have adopted to the 21st technological century. You have to work hard to get top marks, but it is possible. However, graduating with a BSc in Business Management, you need more than just good marks, work experiences and a personal drive is very important because you will not have a tangible knowledge after your degree. I loved my BSc at QM, but will defintely pursue a MSc in a more specialised field. However, a great university to do your undergrad and then move on to Oxbridge level degrees at MSc/MA level. Good luck!!

The department is extremely small which creates a close-knitted environment in all classes. The practical approach to classes ensure increased proficiency in the language; the submission of two translations a week, an essay every fortnight and particularly engaging is the presentation given every fortnight on an independently chosen recent news topic.

The degree is one that is definitely focused on the academic side of drama. You have to be prepared to write lots of essays, even on the practical modules. It is a course that really allows you to research and explore a huge variety of work, ranging from some traditional work, through performance art, fine art, film, dance, etc. I feel that the range of modules are amazing and there is always something for everyone. I would say that you do need to get involved with extra-curricular activities at Queen Mary if you want to gain practical experience. There are no classes that involve acting training for example. These are things that you need to search for elsewhere, maybe through theatre classes, dance classes etc. Queen Mary does very much provide you with a lot of freedom, such as researching what you're interested in or going off to perform in any venue that you like. You will gradually throughout the course realise that in this industry, the work only happens when you set yourself up to do it.

I started studying German and Russian together. Languages degrees are 4 years long because they include a compulsory year abroad, but since I was studying Russian ab initio I did not qualify, which was the first huge disappointment (but I know they have just changed this rule). In order to fill up my credits I have had to study subjects I had no interest in, because of lack of alternatives. It's been manageable until this year, when I finally decided to drop out of Russian (a decision I should have made earlier and that did not depend on the Russian department, which was always above average) and had to use all of my credits for German. I have literally learnt nothing: I had to use my credits to study linguistics and literature, which I am not interested in and definitely not enough to justify all of these modules, and no modules about translation of certain fields/interpreting was offered at all. We have been translating in the main German module but not enough and in a way I have not been happy with at all, while I would have loved being offered modules such as German in tourism, German in politics, oral interpreting... We only got a module about German in business, which would have been a good idea if it had not been taught so badly.Overall I am very dissatisfied about the choice of modules and most of the teaching. I am satisfied about most of what QMUL offers but not about for example the graduation process, the money we have to pay for it and the number of people allowed in, I think it is just ridiculous and insulting.
