Reach! Queen Mary Academic Skills Transition Workshop
Studying at university is quite different from school. Reach! is QM’s transition workshop programme, designed to help you get off to a flying start in your university education. Reach! will equip you with the tips and skills you’ll need to succeed with your studies. You’ll learn about UK academic culture, effective study techniques, essay writing, data visualisation, how to recognise disinformation and lots more.
Reach! workshops are organised by the Queen Mary Academic Skills team. The workshops run online from Welcome Week to Reading Week and are free to all first-year and foundation students. Places for the live event are limited to 250 per session. Access the series on QMPlus.
