Your 2021 student experience

Your 2021 student experience

We're really looking forward to welcoming you onto our campuses this September.

We're getting ready to offer you a vibrant on-campus experience, with all the in-person educational and social activities you'd expect. All of London's attractions will be on your doorstep, and you'll also benefit from the safety and community of our campuses, with a full range of social activities – from sports to academic societies, special interest clubs and volunteering.

Your educational experience

Over the past year, we've been working with our students to continually improve our educational offer. The result is an experience that's tailored to you, bringing together the best of the physical and digital. You'll have the freedom to learn at your own pace, revisiting material when you want to, while staying in close and easy contact with other students and our world-leading academic staff. In every programme there will be some on-campus education for you to enjoy, combined with online learning.

The pastoral support is amazing. I've got an academic adviser I can contact at any point, about anything.

By developing this approach, we've ensured that we can respond to whatever challenges Covid-19 might throw at us. We know the road out of the pandemic won't always be smooth, but we're prepared for all scenarios and focused on ensuring you get the very best educational and social experience from the first day you join us in September.

Your social experience

Of course, your experience at Queen Mary is about much more than your programme of study: it's about meeting new friends, finding new interests and making your home in an exciting, vibrant, multi-cultural city. We can't wait for you to join our community, and we're here to help you to make the most of your university experience. Together with our Students' Union, we provide a full range of social activities – have a look at our upcoming events on the Students' Union website.

Your safety

Keeping you safe, including in relation to Covid-19, is our top priority. The UK’s vaccination programme is progressing well, with all UK over-18s due to be vaccinated by 31 July. We've invested significantly in making our campuses Covid-secure and we'll continue to focus on this as we get ready to welcome you in September.
