St Bartholomew’s Hospital and the London Hospital Medical College (or London Infirmary, England’s first medical school officially) were established for the general public, whereas Westfield College and Queen Mary College were established specifically for women’s education, which was unavailable in the 1780s. Queen Mary University of London is one of the Russell Group’s 24 universities in the United Kingdom.
