Study Well workshops: In collaboration with Queen Mary's Students' Union
As part of QMSU's extended Study Well campaign, we're hosting a series of workshops which support student wellbeing through the development of valuable academic skills.
The themes of the workshops were chosen to reflect the specific challenges faced by students this academic year, based on dialogue with the Students' Union.
The content of the sessions has been co-created by Queen Mary students and Academic Skills Enhancement tutors. The student volunteers have taken the lead in developing the workshops based their own experiences of studying during the pandemic — and on those of their peers.

Revision Skills Workshops
Prepare for the January exams by learning about the most effective ways to revise.
Coming at the beginning of the vacation period, this interactive workshop will help you to get started.
Based on current research into learning and memory, we’ll take you through some effective and time-efficient ways of revising for different types of exams.
You will get to practice certain techniques to understand how they work.
And at the end of the session you’ll apply what you’ve learned by drafting a revision timetable using our template.
Book your place
The workshop is open to Queen Mary students from all subjects and levels of study.
The workshop will take place on QMPlus. You’ll receive a link to the workshop by email a few hours before the session is due to start.
Reach! University Transition Workshops, Autumn 2020-21
In the first term of the 2020-21 academic year, we developed and delivered a series of workshops to support new students making the transition to university. Across eight interactive sessions, we covered topics including Academic Culture and Integrity, Reflection and Feedback, and Critical Thinking.
The sessions were well-attended by students from a broad range of academic backgrounds and received positive feedback.
We also delivered an adapted version of the series to our first-year students based at Northwestern Polytechnical University (NPU) in Xi'an, China.
