Health and safety

Your Health and Safety is a priority for us at Queen Mary.

Whether you are a student coming to study abroad with us at Queen Mary, or you are a student going abroad as part of your Queen Mary degree we aim to ensure you are fully aware of how to prepare for your experience and ensure you are taking care of yourself and are well prepared to travel and live in a new location.

For our incoming students to Queen Mary we provide information on Health and Safety in your Arrivals Guide (which we provide prior to your arrival as a PdF and a hard copy on arrival), as well as including briefings in our Welcome Programme. You can also visit our Advice and Couselling and Security Services pages for further information about Health and Safety at Queen Mary.  

Our outgoing students who are spending time with one of our partner instutitutions as part of their Queen Mary degree are requested to complete a Health and Safety Assesment prior to going abroad. It is essential that students complete this and it is your responsibility to ensure you take responsibility for completing this assesment prior to embarking on your programme. You will be sent a Health and Safety Assesment to complete via email prior to your departure. You may also wish to consider external organisation advice about your chosen location for further information and advice such as the Government's Foreign Travel Advice
