Here you will find information for students and staff on COVID-19.

While we understand that this is anxious time, please be reassured that the University is following guidance from Health Protection Scotland and the Scottish and UK governments.

At QMU we have followed well-established procedures which allow us to prepare for and respond to any scenario in the optimum way. We are committed to supporting our communities in tackling the spread of the virus.

The University is implementing and adapting contingency plans as appropriate, with student and staff health and wellbeing foremost in mind. There is restricted access to the campus, which is intended to ensure that we are able to deliver essential services and support students living on and off campus. Staff are contactable by email but most are working from home. Exams and assessments are being delivered online. See our updates for the current status.

The  You can do IT at home page contains information and links to the key resources that students and staff may require to work remotely. Even if they are working remotely, University staff are contactable by email.

See below forfrequently asked questions (FAQs) for students and staff which reflect the current position and which we hope you will find reassuring. You will also find a link to the page on sources of further information, such as best practice in hand-washing.

We will continue to keep this webpage updated. Should there be any major changes we will inform the University community directly.
