Access to Queen Mary supports the entrance of students under-represented at Russell Group universities to study at Queen Mary, the most inclusive university of its kind!
Through an 18-month programme of activities, we aim to help students become more prepared for and successful in, higher education. Students who successfully complete the programme will not only have benefited from tailored academic and pastoral support but will benefit from a contextual offer to Queen Mary*.
We are currently working with state schools and colleges in target regions across Kent, Medway and Essex.
We also ask that students check they meet the individual eligibility criteria before applying.
Meet all of the criteria outlined in step one:
Meet at least two criteria from step two*:
If your young person has applied to the programme, or been offered a place, you may receive an email requesting parental consent. Please complete this within seven working days of receiving the email. We cannot accept any students on the programme without parent/carer consent.
Where possible, we try to ensure that all sessions are accessible of an evening, weekend or during the summer holidays. There may be a limited number of times a student is asked to attend a session in school time and for this, we will work with the school or college to find a suitable date.
Absolutely not. The programme will help prepare young people for studying at university and if they successfully complete the programme, they may be eligible for a reduced offer or additional consideration at application stage. Participation will in no way negatively impact an application.
We will occasionally invite you to attend events, including our Launch Event and any specific events targeted at parents and carers. Whilst we’d encourage you to attend, it is completely optional. If you have any access or additional requirements then please do inform the team ahead of time so that we can best support you.
We’d be happy to answer further questions via email, or by arranging a suitable time for a phone call. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your questions and details of your young person’s application.
