Every month 800+ teachers pan-London receive our E-bulletin - the 30 second read- containing details of the many outreach activities and programmes which are taking place across campus. All the programmes promoted on our E-bulletins are for students from state schools, however, they are not all Widening Participation specific.

Resources and useful links can also be found on our teachers' webpage.  




Students are also supported once they arrive at Queen Mary through Peer Assisted Study Support.

This successful mentoring scheme gives first-years the opportunity to discuss study-related problems with higher-year undergraduates in their subject.
