Where to Enrol

If you are not able to enrol on 24 or 25 September 2012, you can enrol after that by going to our Research Degrees Office (RDO) on the first working day of each month (for example, the next two dates are: Monday 1 October or Thursday 1 November 2012). The RDO is in Room E15 of the Queens Building. Newly starting students should contact Ms Shazia Sadiq in advance to arrange a time to enrol.
The computing services, fees office and accommodation office have help desks and are also located in the Queens' Building in Mile End.
What you need to bring to Enrol
Enrolling students must bring with them the following documentation to ensure enrolment is successful:
- Original certification relating to any minimum entrance requirements (this will be the enrolling student's highest previous degree, normally an LLM, as well as an IELTS certificate if this has been asked for). Please note if any of these are from a foreign institution in a non-English language, then a translated version must be supplied.
- Proof of ID - a Passport (with a student visa, if applicable), or a birth certificate or photo ID
- Proof of payment - for example, credit card details or cheque-book, or direct debit instructions
- Proof of Pre-Enrolment completion (see above)
School of Law Induction Day – Monday 1 October 2012
The School of Law PhD Student Induction day will begin at 10.00am, and will provide new Research Students with an induction into both the School of Law and the PhD programme. The postgraduate School of Law building is in Lincoln's Inn Fields. The nearest tube station is Holborn, which is on the Central Line. Please ask at reception for directions to the meeting room (which will be the Common Room on the 3rd Floor of the building).
Faculty Induction Wednesday 10 and Thursday 11 October 2012
All new Law Research Students are invited to attend the induction event for graduate students provided by the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences (the Faculty to which the School of Law belongs). This two-day event will take place on Wednesday 10 and Thursday 11 October 2012.
The faculty induction will take place at our Charterhouse Square campus It will start at 9.30am on the first day and both days will finish at around 5.00pm.
Further details about the Faculty Induction Day are available on our Learning Institute website.
Library Presentations – Thursday 4 October or Thursday 18 October 2012
The School of Law Subject Librarian, Mr Nick Holloway, will give a one-hour presentation, in the Lincoln’s Inn Fields building (again in the Common Room on the 3rd Floor), to PhD students on both Thursday 4 October and Thursday 18 October 2012, at 3.00pm, providing advice on how Law PhD students can best use the information resources the College Library offers. All new students are welcome to attend either presentation.
School of Law Legal Research Methods Course - Thursdays from 18 October 2012
The primary aim of the legal research methods 'PhD Research Seminars' is for PhD students to think rigorously about the methodological aspects of their work and to share their experiences of the research process. They are intended to provide an informal, but structured, environment for research students to talk about their work and to receive feedback from staff and students about the research issues they are tackling. The focus is less on the substantive content of their work (though this will be the subject of some discussion in the seminars in which students present their work in progress), but more on the research process itself. The issues we cover are therefore generic rather than specific and will have relevance in one form or another to all PhD students whatever their particular area of study.
The seminars are therefore intended to ensure that each student is supported through the process of research and writing so as to help them to complete their PhD successfully within three years. The sessions will be a mix of staff-led discussion on particular topic, sometimes with input from outside speakers, and student presentations on their work in progress.
In addition to this web-page, general information about enrolment/induction can be found on the main Queen Mary website. Please note that not all of this information is directly applicable for research or law students.
