Important dates:

The teaching semester dates for the 2017-18 academic year are as follows:

  • Semester A:  18 September - 15 December 2017 (teaching starts 25 September 2016)

  • Semester B:  8 January - 29 March 2018 (Bank Holidays 30 March and 2 April 2018)

Find out semester dates for other years of study on the central QMUL pages.

Exam periods:

  • Students who are only spending Semester A at Queen Mary will sit their examinations in mid-December. 
  • Students who are spending the whole academic year at Queen Mary, or only spending Semester B at Queen Mary will sit their examinations in the main examination period which runs from 30 April - 8 June 2018.

Choosing your modules

Listed below are the modules we expect to be available to incoming study abroad students in the 2016/17 academic year. Modules are subject to availability and may change depending on staff and student needs.

The modules  below are grouped according to academic level and subject area. If you select modules from within a single group (i.e. from a subject area and academic level) there should not be any timetable clashes. 

You will receive your timetable shortly before you start with us. If you find you have clashes, you can make changes to your module registration during the first two weeks of the semester. Please be aware that restrictions also apply to the maximum number of student registrations on each module and once this has been reached, the module may be closed to further registrations.
