THE LATEST NEWS

Welcome to 2021 from the QMU! By Zara Grew

Welcome back to the QMU Newsletter! Happy New Year and here is to a better 2021! We have some updates for you on everything QMU during these strange times…


Covid-19 Update


Firstly here is an update on the university’s COVID-19 Information and Guidelines –

6 JANUARY: NEW COVID-19 PROTECTION MEASURES FOR SCOTLAND - https://www.gla.ac.uk/myglasgow/coronavirus/updatearchive/headline_768449_en.html


8 JANUARY - UPDATED GUIDANCE ON STUDENT TRAVEL TO UNIVERSITY –https://www.gla.ac.uk/myglasgow/coronavirus/updatearchive/headline_768690_en.html


14 JANUARY 2021 - ASSESSMENT SUPPORT MEASURES –https://www.gla.ac.uk/myglasgow/coronavirus/updatearchive/headline_769201_en.html


Unfortunately due to Tier 4 the QMU will remain closed but keep an eye on our social media for more updates and exciting content.


As this is such a difficult time for students during lockdown it is super important to know about the support available. Elephant in The Room has created a handy list of mental health and well-being support available for students – https://www.qmunion.org.uk/mental-health-resources.





MUSIC NEWS


We also have had an exciting time over the winter break at The QMU End of Year Extravaganza with over 1000 people tuning in to Lucia & The Best Boys and Gallus perform digitally. This was an incredibly fun and successful event and we hope you enjoyed it if you were able to come along. Keep your eyes peeled for more digital music performances coming your way…


You can view the performance, and individual songs, over on our Facebook and Youtube channels.



GLASGOW UNI STUDENTS TENANTS UNION


Think the rent you pay doesn't reflect the quality of your flat? Tired of waiting endlessly for repairs? Think it’s strange you’re being asked to pay rent for a flat you’re being asked to say away from? You’re not alone. Most Glasgow University Students are feeling the same pressures and pains. Let’s fight together to pay less for better living conditions. Join the Glasgow Uni Student Tenants Union and lets create strength in numbers. Sign our petition for cancelling student rent in January. https://www.instagram.com/gustudenttenantsunion/




BRIDGETON BUZZ


To all you QMU members who have not yet seen one of Netflix newest and biggest TV shows Bridgeton…get watching! The show has gained a huge following over the winter break there has been hype suggesting it will be renewed for a second season or even run for 8 seasons…that’s the dream. It is a perfect escape from the doom and gloom of lockdown and deadlines!


Thanks for reading and lots of love,
