This page describes the benefits and facilities available to staff working at Queen Mary.
Welcome to Queen Mary, University of London. It is one of the largest multi-faculty colleges of the University of London and in its own right is one of the UK’s leading research and teaching higher education institutions. In 2008 Queen Mary was ranked overall 11th in the RAE exercise, a truly outstanding achievement.
This year Queen Mary was short-listed by The Times Higher Education Supplement for a total of five different awards out of 130 institutions nationally, more than any other institution, including a nomination for ‘University of the Year’ Award. Queen Mary won the 'Most Improved Student Experience Award', which was a pleasing recognition of the hard work that so many colleagues have put into this key area.
Queen Mary believes in providing the best for its employees, as they are the key to success. A wide range of benefits are available to staff in order to support their personal development and help them balance their personal and professional lives.
These pages will provide you with information we believe will be relevant to you as a Queen Mary employee. You will be able to find information on a wide range of services and be able access information from departments across the College and to relevant external links.
