Students' Union Opportunities and Societies
Queen Mary Students’ Union (QMSU) has a wealth of opportunities for students to develop themselves.
Joining a Society can begin for a student as a way to explore an interest or passion and make friends but engagement with Societies and can result in students developing a range of skills including campaigning, creative problem solving, project management and marketing and promotion. The Students' Union are also a key employer on campus.
Working for the Students' Union offers the opportunity to make a difference for Queen Mary’s student population. Sabbatical officer roles are paid and open to any student studying a course at Queen Mary, including postgraduate students, international students and part-time students. Alongside the four full-time sabbatical positions there are almost fifty part-time voluntary positions. Students can additionally become course reps, support new students with their transition through the Buddy Scheme, gain skills through volunteering across Tower Hamlets and other London Boroughs.
