Information for applicants and offer-holders

Delivery of learning and teaching at QMU is now much as it was prior to the pandemic, while retaining some of the recent technological developments where those developments enhance the student experience. 

We are maximising on-campus learning and teaching, aiming to ensure that students have a quality experience from day one, with all the educational and social benefits that come from studying at a modern campus university.  All our students will access face to face on-campus activity as usual for all of their small group work (seminars, workshops, studio work, clinics etc.).  

We deliver lectures online for those students on health care programmes (i.e. the majority of programmes in the School of Health Sciences), to maximise the time available for the on campus practical work that is a core part of those programmes. For all other programmes (ie all programmes in the School of Arts, Social Sciences and Management), lectures take place on campus. 

Assessments are being run in a manner consistent with normal operating conditions. 

There is full access to library and study space facilities. All student support services are available on campus, with some also available online.  

Some risk mitigations, particularly enhanced ventilation, and the availability of hand sanitizers, remain in place. These mitigations are based on government and other health protection advice.   

As you would expect, our plans are firmly focused on ensuring both the quality of the student experience and health and wellbeing.  

(All of the above is, of course, subject to Scottish Government guidelines.  We maintain the capacity to vary the balance of our blended  delivery  - combination of on campus and online learning activity if Scottish Government guidelines require it.)  

We pride ourselves on the supportive community environment that we offer students at QMU, in which everyone is treated as an individual. We are confident that this strength will serve our students as we recover from the pandemic.  

You don’t have to wait until you join us to experience more of the QMU community. We encourage offer holders to join our Offer Holders Facebook Group (see link in the information we sent you on your offer), follow us on Facebook and Instagram and Experience QMU online.
