Which QMUL services can I use while I am interrupting or re-sitting out of attendance?
The QMUL regulations state that if you are not enrolled or registered (and this normally includes people who have interrupted their studies, or who are re-sitting out of attendance) you may not use QMUL facilities. The exception to this is if your academic school agrees to make a request for you to have use of a facility which they feel you specifically need. If you feel that there are strong reasons why your studies are being adversely affected because you don’t have access to a certain QMUL facility during your interruption or re-sit out of attendance, contact your academic school to discuss this. There is more information on the QMUL Registry webpages.
Academic school or institute
Check with your academic school what contact you can expect to have with academic staff during a period of interruption or re-sitting out of attendance. Some schools have specific support in place to help students to remain engaged with their studies and to remedy any academic issues that have affected progression. Check what is available with your academic school. Also ask your school if they will need you to provide anything before they will allow you to resume studies, for example if you interrupted due to ill health, your academic school might need you to provide medical evidence that you are well enough to resume.
You could also contact the QMUL learning development team if you need help planning your revision.
You will automatically be given access to the library with limited borrowing rights.
Your access to IT Services will normally remain the same while you are interrupting or re-sitting out of attendance. However, if you do not use your email account for a long time, you may be sent an email asking if you want to keep the account open. If you do not respond to this email, and you are not enrolled, your email account will be disabled.
Disability and Dyslexia Service
Even if you have not previously been supported by the Disability and Dyslexia Service, you can still contact them for support while you are interrupting or re-sitting out of attendance.
Advice and Counselling Service
You can use the Advice and Counselling Service (including by phone or email if this is easier), even if you have not previously done so, while you are interrupting or re-sitting out of attendance.
