QM Elevate

Unlock your potential with our university-wide programme in academic and professional skills development. 

We run 5 and 10-week classes aimed at supporting you in your studies through honing your written and spoken communication. We also offer classes to help you communicate in the workplace with confidence and flair.

The classes are free and open to all students, home and international, across all academic levels and programmes of study.

Our QM Elevate classes will give you the know-how to:

  • Write to impress
  • Read with focus
  • Think critically
  • Present with clarity
  • Communicate with impact
  • Use language effectively

The classes are taught by experienced tutors, with plenty of opportunity for feedback on your work. You will learn the unspoken conventions of academic and professional communication and have the opportunity to work on your assignments in class and plan your work-in-progress. Some classes even offer 1:1 tutorials. Each of the class has a dedicated QMPlus area where you can find teaching materials for each session as well as additional resources which you can explore to further develop your skills.
