  • For academic issues, your personal tutor / adviser is the best person to contact in the first instance
  • The Academic Registry and Council Secretariat (ARCS) Student pages contain information and guidance on many aspects of your studies, such as your student records (MySIS), your finances, your exams, official documents and letters, immigration, discounted travel, bursaries, grants, scholarships and much more.
  • The Advice and Counselling service helps students with a range of situations - from the financial, practical and legal to personal issues
  • The Students' Union is a good place to get advice on a range of issues, for example with academic administration

It is located in the Geography Building. You can see a doctor or nurse there every weekday during term time.
  • QMUL has a legal and moral responsibility to act on concerns to protect children and adults in need of safeguarding so that the university and/or appropriate agencies can then make inquiries and take any necessary action to protect them.
  • The Nursery is available to students and staff with children, it provides excellent support and care for children aged three months to five years.
