CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)-Plans for the next academic year. 

The teaching staff are now beginning to return to the School to resume their academic activities. They are working at a pace to change the way we deliver our courses. Moving forward, we will be using blended and e-learning methods. We aim to roll out the modules, which were postponed during the initial stages of COVID-19, in a phased approach, starting in September 2020, over an eight-month period. This is in line with Health Education England (HEE) who have proposed an extension to the education contract period. This is to allow time for the recovery of commissions that were postponed due to the pandemic.

As you will recognise because of COVID-19, plans are constantly changing so we will, as the situation evolves, endeavour to keep you informed. The health and wellbeing of our staff and students are our absolute priority. 

If you do have any questions or concerns, please refer to our Student Q&A page or contact us at Student Support Services for more information.


The David Adams Library was founded in 2003 thanks to the generous support of the David Adams Leukaemia Appeal Fund. It is open 24 hours a day and is staffed Monday-Friday, 9-5. The library provides staff and students at the Royal Marsden with access to thousands of books and journals, both in print and online, as well as study spaces, computers, and a printer. Students requiring out-of-hours access to the library space who do not work for the Royal Marsden can collect an access card from the main hospital reception when they visit.

The library also has its own search engine, Discovery, which simplifies the research process and connects students to quality resources easily. Library training sessions on searching and referencing are built into all modules and support from staff is available through phone, email, or face-to-face. 

Do get in touch if you have any questions by emailing or calling 0207 808 2515.
