Induction and enrolment for new and continuing undergraduate students
- New to Mathematical Sciences?
- Continuing at Queen Mary?
- Taking the Science and Engineering Foundation Programme?
- What should I do if I am a new student who missed the main induction meeting?
Teaching for all students begins on Monday 24 September.
If you are new to Queen Mary and taking a Mathematical Sciences degree programme…
See the full induction schedule for new students taking a Mathematical Sciences degree programme.
Please also see the general Queen Mary new student induction information.
You should pre-enrol online as early as possible – you can do this from late August onwards.
The induction programme for new students in 2012 takes place during Welcome Week: Monday 17 to Friday 21 September. It is essential that all new students attend their induction programme.
The main induction meeting for all Mathematical Sciences students is on Wednesday 19 September at 1 pm in the Drapers Lecture Theatre, but students on some joint degree programmes should also attend earlier briefing meetings; please see the Queen Mary new student induction information and the full Mathematical Sciences induction schedule (which will also be provided on paper in the main Mathematical Sciences induction meeting).
Even if you are joining the second (or later) year you should follow the enrolment procedures and induction programme for new Mathematical Sciences students. (Please also remind your adviser which year you are joining.)
First year students in mathematical Sciences have a pre-selected programme and therefore you are not required to choose modules for your first year in order to enrole on your programme.
We don't have reading lists as such, but for some guidance on what you might usefully read before starting your course please see our Frequently Asked Questions for prospective undergraduates and our guide to pre-university preparation. For details of textbooks recommended for specific modules please see the web page for that module.
If you have any kind of disability then you are strongly recommended to tell us about it so that we can make appropriate arrangements; we can't provide support for anything we don't know about! The best people to discuss disabilities with are Norman McBreen, the School of Mathematical Sciences Student Support Officer and/or the Queen Mary Disability and Dyslexia Service.
If you are continuing at Queen Mary and taking a Mathematical Sciences degree programme…
If you are progressing from the Queen Mary FGHZ or FGHY SEFP then please proceed as if you were new to Queen Mary. Otherwise, you should log in to your MySIS account and follow the online enrolment procedure available from Monday 6 August onwards. (However, if your progression depends on late summer exams you may not be able to enrol until Monday 17 September.)
If you are beginning the first year of a new Mathematical Sciences degree programme (because you are progressing from the Queen Mary GGX1 SEFP or retaking your first year on a different study programme) then you should follow the induction programme for new Mathematical Sciences students as above.
- collect a copy of the current Student Handbook (and possibly other documents) from the Maths Office from Wednesday 19 September onwards,
- consider or reconsider what modules you want to take, and
- if necessary, log in to your MySIS account and register or update your module registration online; see our module registration guide (For advanced year entry students).
Please think about your module options in detail before registering them. It is your responsibility to check for timetable clashes and prerequisites when choosing your modules; only the compulsory modules shown in your study programme are guaranteed to be feasible. There is no other induction programme for continuing Mathematical Sciences students.
The latest version of the Student Handbook will be available on the web and should be available in printed form from the Maths Office during Welcome Week.
We don't have reading lists as such, but for details of textbooks recommended for specific modules please see the web page for that module.
If you are taking the Science and Engineering Foundation Programme…
Please see the Science and Engineering Foundation Programme enrolment web site and the general Queen Mary new student induction information. In particular, note that the general SEFP induction meeting (which is only for students admitted via UCAS, i.e. not FGHZ students) will be held on Tuesday 18 September at 11:00 am in the Skeel Lecture Theatre (Peoples palace, 16 on the campus map).
In addition to the general SEFP induction meeting, there will be a departmental induction meeting for Mathematical Sciences SEFP (i.e. GGX1 and GGY1) students at 2 pm on Tuesday 18 September at 14:00 in Bancroft Road Teaching Rooms 4:02 (10 on the campus map).
What should I do if I am a new student who missed the main induction meeting?
Please find your degree programme. This semester, you will be taking the four modules listed for semester 1. Look at the semester 1 timetable to find when and where your lectures (labelled Lec) will be. Ignore support classes (labelled Tut for tutorial) initially; they do not start until after the first lecture and you will be allocated a specific support class for each module. You can find the locations of lecture rooms on the online campus map. You should also read the Student Handbook. Please go to the Maths Office, ask who your adviser is and visit him/her as soon as possible.
