Calendar

Queen Mary's normal hours of operation are 9am-6pm. These are the times in which students should expect teaching, learning and assessment activities to be timetabled. Activities for some programmes may take place outside of these times; students should contact their academic schools or institutes for further information.

Please note:

  • International Foundation Programme students (January start) do not follow this pattern of attendance – visit the School of Languages, Linguistics and Film for more information.
