Support while you learn

We provide you with a range of services to support your learning whilst you are studying at Queen Mary.

Learning Development

During your time at Queen Mary, our Learning Development team will provide you with a range of activities and resources to help you.

Writing & Study Guidance (from Learning Development) helps students at any level from any subject discipline, undergraduate or postgraduate, to become more effective in their academic work. They can help with aspects of study including reading effectively, writing, exam technique, revision, note-taking, time-management, critical thinking, avoiding plagiarism, presentation skills and group work. Throughout the year they run one-to-one tutorials, drop-ins, retreats and various workshops.

Royal Literary Fund Fellows are available for tutorials with students from any discipline - their aim is to help the student develop clear, lively, accurate writing that gets its meaning across with the minimum of fuss.

One-to-one Statistics Guidance tutorials for non-Mathematicians who need to use statistics in their coursework, research project or dissertation.
