Welcome to the School of English and Drama family. Please read this information carefully to get an overview of Welcome Week, which is from Monday 20 to Thursday 23 September 2021.
We’re delighted you’ll be joining us next week as a Queen Mary student. Welcome Week begins on Monday 20th September, introducing you to everything you’ll need to know before teaching starts from Monday 27th September. The School of English and Drama has provided a range of induction materials, videos, timetable and activities on QMplus here so please familiarise yourself with this information before Welcome Week begins. Please note – you are able to view the SED Welcome Week and Getting Started 2021-22 QMplus page as a guest however you may have a better experience if you log in with your QM ITS credentials. Links to join your online programme talks and sessions, as well as personalised groupings for your Phakama,
Advisor and e-learning sessions will appear on this page from Monday 20 September. Welcome Week activities are an integral part of your QMUL learning experience, will give you a taste of what is to come and introduce you to some key staff involved in the delivery and support of your programme.
Don’t forget that the Queen Mary mobile app includes lots of handy campus maps, links to your timetable, Library study space bookings, and much more – download the app to discover your tailored information. We look forward to meeting you all at our first online session on Monday 20 September at 11.00 a.m!
Please do let me know if you’d like a chat or have any questions!
