Our tours are delivered by our student ambassadors, who will be able to provide you with an honest and current perspective on being a student at QMU. Tours include the Learning Resource Centre, teaching rooms, social areas including the Students’ Union and sports facilities and, where possible, student accommodation. There will also be the opportunity to speak with a member of staff from the Student Recruitment or Admissions teams.

Whether it’s a general topic, such as student finance, or a specific topic, such as the study of physiotherapy, we can offer an interactive and interesting presentation which will leave students with a better understanding of the options available. For more information, please contact the Student Recruitment team.
