About Holmes Education Group - St. Mary University London International College

Holmes Education Group (HEG) is a family run and family owned private company. For us business is personal. We believe in building partnerships with trustworthy and ambitious people. More dynamic than our corporate competitors, we can communicate closely with our partners and make changes quickly. We are not bound by policy, and we innovate to find solutions where others cannot.

Holmes Education Group is a pioneer of international student education programs. Our story began in Melbourne, Australia as an English Language Center over 30 years ago. We're still independently owned and managed today, and educate more than 20,000 students each year across Europe, Asia, Australia and North America.

Our success extends far beyond our student numbers. Our growth continues to be driven by a passion to create innovative pathways that help students achieve their education goals. From English language training to MBAs and everything in between.

St Mary’s University London International College

For many overseas students, studying in the UK is an ambition, but it can be quite difficult to fulfil the dream. Universities have strict admissions criteria; they demand advanced English skills; and have high expectations from their applicants.

Happily, pathway programmes such as SMULIC’s can provide an accessible and affordable solution. SMULIC immerses you in St Mary’s campus and academic life, as well as the English language and UK culture. Your time at SMULIC will fast-track you on your academic pathway to degree success.

St Mary’s University London
Established in 1850 and with a deep heritage in education, St Mary’s has a strong reputation for teaching excellence and a student-centred approach.

On 23rd January 2014, St Mary's University College, Twickenham, was awarded full university title by the Privy Council and became St Mary's University, Twickenham.



International students have a choice of accommodation options at St Mary's as we offer a range of accommodation on and off campus.

Halls of residence
Undergraduate students can apply to live in one of St Mary's halls of residence. All of our halls provide high quality accommodation, campus-wide wifi and easy access to facilities on campus. 

The prices include a meal package (term-time only) that includes breakfast Monday to Friday, brunch on Saturday and Sunday and a meal every evening. All meals are taken in the campus refectory, which has an extensive menu to suit a variety of needs.

Available halls of residence
There are different halls options to suit a range of student requirements and budgets, including both en-suite accommodation and halls with shared bathroom facilities.

16 Strawberry Hill Road
16 Strawberry Hill Road is a good option for international students who would like to stay over Christmas as this is the only accommodation open over this time. It is also best suited for those who would like a quieter environment.

De Marillac
If you would like modern, en-suite accommodation, or are looking forward to immersing yourself in all the social fun St Mary's has to offer, then De Marillac could be the place for you.

Waldegrave Park Houses
The Waldegrave Park Houses offer twin rooms for those wanting to share a room with someone else – ideal to keep costs low. 

Benedict XVI House
For those wanting to live with others to pursue together a life of prayer, study, community and service to the wider St Mary's community, Benedict XVI House is a lay community just across the road from the University on Waldegrave Gardens.

Private Sector Accommodation
Students may also opt for private sector accommodation in the local area. There are excellent transport links to West and Central London, so you'll have a world of opportunities on your doorstep wherever you choose to live.

St Mary's is located near to the towns of Twickenham, Teddington, Richmond and Kingston. These townsprovide lots of student-friendly accommodation within a short distance of the university. 

St Mary's Accommodation Service works very closely with a number of local student accommodation providers and give advice and support to international students looking for off-campus housing. International students living in private sector accommodation may find that they need to provide their landlord with details of a guarantor based in the UK.

The Accommodation Service can advise about organizations that can serve as guarantors for students. Please see our private sector accommodation pages for further information and useful links about housing in the local area.
