The Application Process

The deadline for submitting your application is 9th December 2022, however we encourage you to start and complete your application as early as possible and to adhere to deadlines set by your school. We fully appreciate that subject choices and grade predictions can change. It is important that you put these on your application and then contact us at a later date to advise of any changes.

Please ensure you use an email account you have regular access to (not your school account) as this is the way we will contact you. Please note that emails sometimes end up in junk/promotions folders so please check these regularly and add Queen Mary’s College to your safe senders list.
