The Queen Mary Statement of Graduate Attributes articulates a full and challenging set of attributes that we expect our undergraduate and postgraduate taught students to possess on graduation. The achievement of these attributes depends both on learning within and beyond our formal programmes of study. The framework is intended to offer clarity to Queen Mary students and their teachers and will inform curriculum development and programme review.
Our goal is that all Queen Mary students will graduate ‘with knowledge of and ability to exploit the full range of distinctive attributes they possess’. The Graduate Attributes Project is an important Queen Mary learning and teaching initiative that supports this aim.
Through collaborative work with staff, and over the next two years this project aims to:
- Capture the institutional learning in terms of leadership, governance and management issues arising during the implementation of the project.
- Enhance departmental capability to change curricula and incorporate graduate attributes in subject-based learning activities.
- Enhance capability of professional services staff to integrate Graduate Attributes into staff development activities and student and extra-curricular activities.
- Enhance our undergraduate students’ ability to explain their student experience with reference to graduate attributes.
We aim to share our experiences by posting documents and materials on this site.
