We encourage all onsite students to travel to the UK for Queen Mary’s Welcome Week which begins on the 20th September 2021, or by the first week of the academic calendar (27th September 2021). 

However, if you are unable to join us in September for the start of your programme then our students will be able to study online until such time that you are able to travel to campus.

All CAS which are issued to new international students will have 7th February 2022 as the very latest arrival date for entry to the UK.  If you have already received your CAS with an earlier date, this will be updated to reflect the 7th February.  However, we encourage students to travel at the earliest opportunity available to them to ensure they make the most of the on-campus Queen Mary University of London experience.
