Housing on campus is guaranteed at the Mile End campus of Queen Mary University of London for summer school students. University housing includes bed linen and towels, which are fresh on arrival and changed weekly. Breakfast is included in the accomodation. The kitchens do come equipped with a kettle and microwave. Wifi is available in the University Residence Halls.
Queen Mary Univeristy of London will provide a list of activities students can take part in during their exchange. Please note that these activities will incur an extra cost and are not included in the program. The Welcome Programme will give you practical advice about living and studying in London (and host optional social events like a student boat trip down the River Thames, so you get to see London's historic riverside while relaxing with other students).
This program is overseen by the EAP Study Center in London. Local staff abroad help students integrate into the culture and provide assistance with academics, safety, and other issues.
Take thought-provoking courses in the humanities and social sciences, or challenge yourself by studying unique topics in physics and computer science. Each course is three weeks long, but some courses are offered during both sessions, giving you the possibility to combine courses in the order that best suits your interests.

A part of the University of London, Queen Mary enrolls about 12,000 students in faculties of Humanities, Social Sciences and Law, Medicine and Dentistry, and Science and Engineering. Strong disciplines include economics, English, history, linguistics, literature, mathematics, modern European languages/literatures, and political science. The Department of English features courses that focus on theoretical and cultural issues as they relate to the study of literature.
