The new union is lovely and will be a great place for socialising, there are a few places to have lunch/ coffee around the campus The sports facilities could be improved- the gym is really good but another sports hall would be useful, we had problems booking it for football! Having said that the Chislehurst sports ground is a great facility with a bar and loads of pitches, it's a shame it's a bit of a distance from uni but this is London so not much we can do about that!×
Being at a London uni it's sometimes difficult to keep costs down such as accomodation and travel.Report

The halls come in three basic lots, "standard" which is a desk, a single bed, a wardrobe, bookshelves, other shelves and a wash basin. I didn't have this but visited people who did and they seemed good. "En Suite" is the same as standard with the addition of a wetroom containing the washbasin, shower and toilet, it's not massive but it is big enough. You lose some room to it but not a lot. I had this and it was really good and I enjoyed it. "deluxe en suite" has more floor space, a bath/shower in the washroom and a pull out spare bed for if you want people to stay. These are really nice but it's normally an extra 10-15 a week so bare that in mind. Pooley house is known for the parties, it is the biggest house with the biggest flats and obviously has a lot of them. You don't however normally choose your house, just your TYPE of accommodation. I lived in Lynden House, which was 4 flats and is the smallest house on campus. It was well suited for me because it was quiet and you really got to know everyone in the building well.×
The practicals and coursework sections in each modules are very interactive and easy to get marks.Report

Depends on how rich you are. But buy lunches from Sainsburys for 3, buy meals in bulk rather than individually and do your own cooking, and save some money for luxuries - you've got to live a little. Part time work is an option but everyone who does it says it's a huge commitment.×

In terms of contact hours, we at the School of Business and Management have 8 hours per week: 4 hours of tutorials and seminars and 4 hours of lectures. Depending on your seminar tutor (some are more willing and helpful than others), you can get really specific and helpful feedback. You can also email them on the Queen Mary email for anything, whether it's a question about a topic or exam question or just advice on referencing in your essays, they are helpful.×

League table rankings
Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
