    • Undergraduate Welcome Week Timetable - Monday 20 - Thursday 23 September 2021

      A BIG Hello to all new Undergraduate students studying a degree within the School of English & Drama!

      Your SED Welcome week events and activities have been designed to give you the best possible start to your degree programme. It's important you attend and engage fully in all the sessions to ensure a smooth transition to your teaching and learning at QMUL.

      Some activity sessions will run online using MS Teams, other sessions will run in person on the Mile End campus. 
      Links to your online activity sessions will appear in the timetable below on the day of the event, just before the session is due to begin. You can join a session simply by clicking the appropriate link.

      Personalised session information for your 'Phakama workshop' (to be held either on Tues OR Wed OR Thus), 'Meet your Advisor & Advisee group' session (to be held on Weds) and e-Learning training session (to be held on Weds) will be sent via email. Note - Phakama workshop, Meet your Advisor & Advisee group session and your e-Learning training session will run in person on Mile End campus unless you're an overseas student who has restricted travel (further details including location will be sent to your QM email soon).


      Please:
      • familiarise yourself with the Welcome Week timetable below so you know when and where to attend 
      • watch any video/s in advance as appropriate so you are prepared for the coming session
      • join your session promptly at the start time

      Remember - online session links will be posted below just before the start time on the day of the activity.
      In person activity sessions will be held at the QM Mile End Campus (personalised session information to your QM email) so ensure you allow yourself enough time to travel to campus.
