QMUL Model Extra opportunities

QMUL Model Extra programmes are a suite of 5 extra-curricular employability programmes hosted by the Queen Mary Careers & Enterprise or Professional Development teams. All programmes meet at least one of the QMUL Model themes.

Model Extra programmes are offered in addition to, and complementing, your credit-bearing QMUL Model modules run by Schools or Institutes. Although non-credit bearing, all programmes run regularly throughout a semester (generally once a week) and include bespoke training sessions designed to help you build your CV and professional skills.
