St Mary's Universityhttp://www.stmarys.ac.uk/international/why.htm
St Mary’s is a strong and welcoming community of students and staff and it is committed to the highest standards in teaching across the wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses we offer. In addition, it has a vibrant research culture and environment. Founded on Catholic values, it is an inclusive institution with a mission to provide students with an excellent education. St Mary’s lays the foundations for a successful life and career, while undertaking world-leading research and contributing to the community and wider society.
There is a range of facilities on campus to support and enhance learning including teaching blocks, library, accommodation and sports facilities. We are dedicated to improving the facilities on campus and last year alone invested more than £6.5million on new developments and improvements. This includes a new Library, media production facility and Strength and Conditioning Suite.
Founded in 1850, St Mary's University has a long and distinguished history within Higher Education and in this year we celebrate our 165th anniversary. From its original intake of just six students, St Mary’s has grown to around 6,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students across four academic schools and offers a wide range of degree programmes.
The Students’ Union (SMSU) is the official representative body for all undergraduates and postgraduates.
SMSU has over 30 sports clubs as well as numerous societies. The sports teams play in some of the highest leagues in BUCS (British Universities and Colleges Sport) and our societies are active throughout the year, which means that there is always something to get involved with. Just some of the social events organised throughout the year include Welcome Fortnight, music festival SIMMStock, the annual West London Sports Varsity and the Summer Ball and Boat Party.
Students can also become a Programme Representative, join the Executive Team, SMSU Council or join an SMSU Committee.
We have an excellent reputation for sport and have been ranked second for ‘Top Sporty Universities’ in the UK by independent reviewer Which? The survey comprises the views of more than 12,000 students across the country and praised St Mary’s state-of-the-art sporting facilities and student sport offering.
Our facilities are also used by some of the world’s best athletes including alumni Mo Farah, Andrew Osagie, and Paralympian David Wier. This makes us an excellent choice for all, from budding athletes to those who play sport and keep fit for fun.
