FAQ

MEMBERSHIPS

How do I join a club or society?

There are a variety of ways you can pay your subs to join a student group. Firstly; you can pay directly online through this website. You can also pay at the reception desk of BLSA , the Infopoint at the Blomeley Centre, or QMotion Reception.

What does my membership fee go towards?

Although QMSU funds Club Sport, Membership fees / Subscriptions / Subs help to complement the grant allocation. Subs money also contributes to activities that QMSU is NOT ALLOWED to fund (ie Socials, Charity, items for individuals)

How long does my membership last?

Membership lasts from 1st August until 31st July. There is no reduction in membership (unless directly specified) if you join up late.

Can I get a refund on my membership?

Once you have decided which student group you are going to join and have paid, there are no refunds. In exceptional circumstances, please apply in writing to the VP Activities.

Is there a limit to the number of Student Groups I can join?

No. You can join as many as you like. However, we advise you to speak to the relevant Club Captains / Presidents before joining. Also, when joining different sports clubs, remember that these may have fixtures/training on the same day.

I am not a student at QMUL, can I still join a club?

Membership of QM student groups is limited to students, staff and alumni of QMUL. Membership of BLSA student groups is limited to students, staff and alumni of the School of Medicine and Dentistry. *The only exception to this is Martial Arts groups whose membership of their Governing Body requires a reciprocal agreement.

FOR STUDENT GROUP OFFICERS

How do I go about organising an event or ball?

You must fill out an Event Budget planner before committing to any aspects of an event. Please arrange a meeting with the VP Activities as soon as possible. No funds will be released until a budget is submitted and approved. You will be held personally liable for any non-authorised costs.

How do I purchase something for my student group?

You must speak to the Club Sport Coordinator before any purchases.

For the majority of expenses that are planned, you must get a Purchase Order (P.O.) completed. Please email your request to the Club Sport Coordinator. Once the P.O. has been sent to the company, they will invoice us.

If you require the goods urgently, we may be able to pay for them by credit card.

If you have not spoken to the team and order goods, you may be personally laible to pay any monies owed.

How do I claim back money?

If you have incurred incidental expenses on behalf of your club, please complete an expenses form and bring it to Qmotion or BLSA reception. The form must be signed by you President or Treasurer and have a receipt attached. You cannot authorise you own expenses.

How do I pay in money?

Paying in money couldn’t be simpler. Please bring the money to either BLSA or Qmotion Reception and fill in a paying in slip.

MISCELLANEOUS

Who can I speak to about Club Sport?

There is a dedicated team of staff and students who are responsible for looking after Sports and Societies at QMSU (including BLSA). Find out who we are and how to contact us here.

Does it cost anything to start a new club or society?

No, setting up a new club or society is free. However, if it becomes affiliated, the club or society won’t receive anything funding for their first year of existence. You must also charge a minimum membership fee of £5.

Are there Scholarships available?

Unfortunately there are no scholarships available from QMSU. However, if you require funding for specific courses or qualifications, there are funds available from the University of London Union (ULU). We can help you apply for these and other funds that may be available in the local community.

How can I get more involved?

You are able to run for positions on you Student Group Committee once a year at the AGM (this will be held around Easter time). There are also positions available within the Union (click here). Some are sabbatical (after you’ve finishes studying, or on a year out) and some are non-sabbatical (alongside your study) – these are voted for around February, with the positions starting in July/August.

What is the Merger Cup?

The Merger Cup is a series of annual sporting fixtures played between Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry and the rest of its parent college, Queen Mary, University of London. The results of a number of matches, normally played on the same day, are combined to determine the overall winner.
