School of History Welcome Week 2020

Congratulations to those of you who are joining us at the School of History at Queen Mary University of London! We very much hope you will enjoy your studies with us and we look forward to welcoming you in person soon. Welcome back to those of you who are returning for your second or final years with us, its good to be back.

This page contains information about welcome week in the School of History this year. This year will be a bit different as we try to keep everyone healthy and safe and make sure that your first semester isn’t disrupted. That means that our information and advice sessions will be held online rather than in really big groups in packed lecture theatres. They’re part of a fun week of activities that you can participate in even if you can’t join us in person. There’ll still be lots of things to do on campus and plenty of chances to meet new and existing students in a safe way.

It is important that you engage with as many sessions as possible and that we work together to guarantee you get the great education you deserve.

The provisional welcome week timetable is below, but will be updated as new events are confirmed. Full details on how to join each session will be sent to you by email in the days and weeks leading up to each session.
