Queen Mary University of London
World University Rankings 2014-15
Joining the University of London as a constituent college in 1915, Queen Mary has 19th-century roots in the East End's People's Palace movement. But after merging with Barts and the London medical schools, the combined institution can now look back to 12th-century origins. It has some 16,000 students and a research and teaching staff of 3,000.
