Following confirmation that the funeral for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will be held on Monday 19th September and the announcement of a bank holiday on this date, we are amending the University induction plans as follows:
Sunday 18th September
Moving into on-campus accommodation will take place as planned, to welcome our new residential students who still wish to travel to St Mary’s to join us on this day.
Monday 19th September
Most induction activity due to take place on Monday has been postponed and rescheduled to later in the week. Please see our full timetable for your welcome fortnight, and check your programme induction pages towards the end of the week for any changes.
SU Welcome Fest
Events that were due to take place on Monday 19th September have been postponed and rescheduled for later in the week or the following week. Further information is available on the Students’ Union website.
- Online orientation sessions will go ahead as planned on 19th September, however, these have been scheduled to start at the earlier time of 9-10.45 am. These sessions will include information to help international students settle into life in the UK.
- All face-to-face orientation activities are postponed until later in the week. Students on full degrees should check their programme induction pages for updates on induction-related activities.
All St Mary’s University activities (e.g. teaching, SU events) will go ahead as normal from Tuesday 20th September.
