Starting life in 1887 as the People’s Palace, a Victorian philanthropic project, Queen Mary has always aimed to transform the lives of the working people of the East End through education, recreation and culture. The university has grown considerably since its origins, joining with the distinguished medical colleges of St Bartholomew’s (est. 1123) and the Royal London Hospitals (est. 1740) to form our Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry.


Our Summer School programme features a broad range courses, put together by our world-class academics in a variety of disciplines. You can specialise according to your interests, knowing that each session will be thought-provoking, challenging and exciting in equal measure.
