In many Schools this will happen automatically. Where this is the case, during Welcome Week, your buddy will send you a welcome email to your Queen Mary email address and invite you to meet either face-to-face or virtually.

If you have not been contacted by a mentor by 21st September and would like to be put in touch with someone in your School, please complete the I want a mentor form.

I missed the email but would still like a mentor.
