OVERVIEW

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.

Univeraity 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.

LOCATION

St Mary’s location is hard to beat. The University has all the advantages of a great London location along with the peace of a beautiful self contained campus in the safe, leafy suburb of Strawberry Hill. Kingston, Richmond and central London are close by so you’ll find plenty of things to do. 

The large riverside towns of Kingston and Richmond are just a short bus ride away, and you will find a huge range of entertainment there. Cinemas, live music venues, pubs, several theatres, and a bowling alley await you, as well as an excellent range of shops, cafés and restaurants. Kingston night clubs offer special deals for St Mary’s students and you will find other discounts for students in the area.

On top of this, London is just over 30 minutes away by train from Strawberry Hill to Waterloo, giving the opportunity to take advantage of everything it has to offer from shops and entertainment to the cultural and educational benefits of access to theatres, galleries and the latest exhibitions. Public transport is frequent and runs late so it’s easy to get to and from the University.

You'll also find plenty of convenient local amenities right on your doorstep since the high streets of Teddington and Twickenham are within walking distance and offer a good range of shops, restaurants and pubs. St Mary’s is also in an excellent location for finding part-time jobs too.

The University is situated just a few minutes away from the River Thames in the grounds of the historic Strawberry Hill House. St Mary’s uses some of the 19th Century rooms in the house but also benefits from the lovely grounds and the self contained campus they provide. Additional sports grounds are located just ten minutes walk away.
