About the Queen Mary Academy

The Queen Mary Academy supports excellence in teaching, learning, scholarship, research, and academic leadership across the university

About us

The Academy is committed to providing outstanding development opportunities to enhance academic practice across Queen Mary. We deliver a comprehensive development portfolio, which enables educators and researchers to progress their practice, their academic careers and achieve recognition. We offer a range of developmental activity that supports development in our Schools and Institutes, and pan-institution.

Our programmes are inclusive and accessible, using a mixed model of delivery combining online and in-person pedagogy. Our taught programmes and teaching recognition programme are accredited by Advance HE.

We collaborate with the Queen Mary community, both staff and students, on strategic projects to deliver Queen Mary’s 2030 Strategy. Located within the Office of the Principal, the Queen Mary Academy reports to the Vice-Principal (Education) and has a dotted-line report to the Vice-Principal (Research) to ensure strategic alignment in our approach.

Our Advisory Group includes educational experts from the UK and beyond, and ensures that we benchmark our offer against global best practice.
