Vice-Principal (Education), Queen Mary University of London
Queen Mary is a world-leading university providing world-class research-informed education across the disciplinary spectrum. In the most recent UK assessment of research activity in universities, Queen Mary was ranked 5th in the country amongst multi-faculty institutions for the proportion of our research outputs that were world-leading or internationally excellent. That world-leading research feeds directly into our teaching and, importantly, we have a genuine and strong track record in public engagement, with a commitment to shaping society, health and well-being and the economy. We were the first institution to be awarded the Engage Watermark Gold Award for excellence in public engagement.
Queen Mary is an international institution - we have five campuses in London, alongside a campus in Malta, a presence in Paris, and significant activity across China. In London we have 162 nationalities represented on our campuses, creating environments where students, staff, visitors and the local community have the opportunity to understand, learn from, and respect the diverse cultures found across the globe, as well as acting as a local and national gateway to the rest of the world.
We are seeking an experienced and visionary leader to take our education strategy to the next level and to continue to grow our global reputation, a reputation that allows us to attract the best staff and students, generate inward regional investment, and to build lasting relationships with other universities, institutions, businesses, governments, future students, supporters, donors and alumni.
