Queen Mary Summer School

At a glance


We regret to inform you that due to the challenges related to the COVID-19 pandemic we have made the difficult decision to cancel the Queen Mary Summer School in 2021.

We are making this decision now so that all of our prospective students are able to move forward with alternative plans. We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience this may cause you.

It is always a pleasure to welcome students to Queen Mary and we will resume with the relaunch of the Summer School in 2022, ensuring we have an attractive and exciting set of courses on offer.
