Non-academic support

Student life isn’t all about studying. As part of Queen Mary’s online community, there is a team of people dedicated to making your experience with us as positive as possible and our induction will welcome you, and introduce you to studying online.

Online Student Advisers are your first point of contact for any practical queries whether that be for tips on effective online learning, advice about work-life balance, or to direct you to our university support services.

If technology makes you nervous, our technical support team will be on hand to offer advice and help on the use of our online learning platform. 

Other opportunities

While the modules are all taught online, we also provide the opportunity to attend one residential workshop per year for the International Dispute Resolution programmes, usually on campus at Queen Mary.

These optional workshops are usually long weekends, running from Friday to Monday, and offer the chance to:

  • Meet with members of the course team and other students
  • Attend talks and workshops from Queen Mary academics
  • Take advantage of personal development opportunities
  • Have fun and socialise

Although attendance is neither compulsory nor necessary to complete your degree, these events provide a great opportunity to take part in the life of the course outside of your formal studies.
