The Enrolment Timeline

Below you will find an overview of the timeline of the enrolment process and your first few weeks at Queen Mary. You may not complete all activities in the order they are listed below, however, the first activity of receiving an invitation to complete Pre-Enrolment is the first step to becoming a Queen Mary student.

Please be advised that the dates below relate to the January 2024 enrolment period. For those programmes starting in any other month, your dates will be different however the timeline below should give you an idea of timeframes and what you can expect during the lead up to starting your programme.

For full guidance on Enrolment and what is required of you, please see our Enrolment Process webpage.


What’s happening

4th December onwards

Complete Pre-Enrolment (Stage 1)

From this date we will start to send out emails to invite students to complete Pre-Enrolment in MySIS (including MySIS login details). New students will be processed daily over the upcoming weeks so please wait for your invitation.

This is the first step to becoming fully enrolled and you can start Pre-Enrolment as soon as you have access to the task - we encourage you to complete it as soon as possible.

The email subject line is 'Pre-Enrolment at QMUL is now available'.

Pre-Enrolment in MySIS should take about 15 minutes to complete and involves you supplying information about yourself, uploading an identification document (i.e. passport details page), confirming how you will be paying your tuition fees and uploading a photo for your student ID card.

If you require immigration permission in order to study in the UK, you will also need to upload evidence here that you have the correct permission to study at QMUL.

You should complete Pre-Enrolment as soon possible after you have been given access to the task in MySIS. The deadline to Pre-Enrol is also your enrolment deadline.

Once you have completed the task you will receive an email with the subject line 'Thank you for completing Pre-Enrolment'.

4th December onwards

Pay your Tuition Fees

You will need to pay or make arrangements to pay your tuition fees (e.g. set up a payment plan or provide us with your Student Finance 'Student Support Number' during Pre-Enrolment) with the Fees Office.

You will not be fully enrolled until you have paid or made arrangements to pay your fees.

You will be sent guidance on how to pay your fees shortly after completing Pre-Enrolment and an invoice will be sent via email within a few working days.

6th December onwards

Check your IT Access

You’ll receive your IT account details directly from IT Services via email within 72 hours of being invited to complete Pre-Enrolment. You’ll now be able to access QMplus, the QM App, your QM email account and Eduroam (campus wi-fi). You don’t need to have completed Pre-Enrolment or be enrolled to have access but you do need to have been invited to start the Pre-Enrolment task.

Use the 24/7 Live Chat facility or call +44 020 7882 8888 to speak with IT Services if you have not received this email or you cannot access your accounts.
