St Mary’s University Twickenham London is a strong and welcoming community of students and staff and is committed to the highest standards in teaching across the wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses they offer. In addition, they have a vibrant research culture and environment.
St Mary’s University is a modern, friendly and welcoming university situated in the leafy borough of Richmond upon Thames and just a short train journey away from the hustle and bustle of central London.
With a close-knit community of students, you’ll quickly feel at home, whilst still being offered all the challenges and excitement of a rewarding student experience.
University has been building a reputation of excellence in education since being established in 1850 and, whilst being centred by key Catholic values of fairness, respect and generosity, they are of course welcoming to students of all faiths and none.
St Mary’s used to be affiliated with the University of Surrey, but became independent in 2006. Since then we have developed an excellent reputation for student satisfaction and teaching quality: The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2019 ranked St Mary’s 1st in London for Student Experience and Teaching Excellence, and the recent Guardian 2020 league tables ranked St Mary’s 1st in London for Course Satisfaction and Teaching Satisfaction.
University has also developed an excellent reputation for sport. They have one of the largest selections of sports degrees in the UK, and have a fantastic record in competition across a range of sports. At the 2016 Rio Olympic games, 23 students and alumni represented Team Great Britain, winning 6 medals in the Olympics and 3 in the Paralympics! All of their competitive teams have professional, fully qualified coaches, and last year their teams won division titles in Cross Country, Football, Rugby, Netball, Basketball, and more.
