Information for teachers and supporting adults

The Queen Mary Futures programme is aimed at students with backgrounds under-represented in higher education, and who have the academic profile for study at a highly competitive university like Queen Mary.

The information below is provided to support and inform teachers, advisers, parents and carers. 

For any questions, please email

We ask for a teacher or staff contact so we can inform someone at an applicant's school or college of their participation in the Queen Mary Future programme.

It's also important that we can verify that students' details are correct, including access criteria and grades, and so invite staff to get in touch if they wish to query any of the information provided to us by their students.

For students' applications to be competitive, they should currently be studying subjects and qualifications that would make them eligible for study of their preferred subject at Queen Mary. You can check, or help them to check, relevant course entry requirements here:

They must also meet the entry criteria specific to the programme strand they have applied for. Full details can be found here

Students will receive: 

  • Expert insight in to several subject areas that align with their preferred HE pathway

  • Opportunities to develop key skills that are associated with success at university

  • Enhanced careers information, advice and guidance, including contributions from Queen Mary Alumni

  • Certification to recognise their successful completion of the Queen Mary Futures programme

We offer plenty of in-school or online workshops, you can make a booking request by using our Activity Portal. 

We also have plenty of online and digital outreach, including webinars and interactive courses, which are available to all students in the UK. These are available on our Digital Content Hub. 

We ask for this information so that we can inform parents and carers that their young person will take part in the Queen Mary Futures programme, for their information. 

We also ask students to provide the details of someone who we can contact in the event of an emergency. This can be the same person as the parent or carer they list in their application.
