The Study Well campaign Winter 2019

Welcome to Study Well, a campaign that is designed to help you look after your mental health and wellbeing during this stressful exam season. If this isn’t your first year at Queen Mary, you’ll notice that we’re back at it again with doggy drop-ins, unisex nail salons and other fun activities to take a break from your studies. However, we know that this campaign isn’t going to solve your mental health problems and it’s not intended to.

This will be mostly everyone’s first time doing January exams, so we wanted to raise awareness of how important it is to take a break to make you more effective at studying and to stop your mental health getting much worse the more you study. We’re also using this as an opportunity to shout about all the work we’re doing as executive officers to improve your experience at Queen Mary. On behalf of the executive officers at Queen Mary Students' Union, we wish you the best of luck in all of your coursework deadlines and exams and don’t forget to access the services on this web page if you need help!

Being more aware of the present, including your thoughts and feelings, your body and the world around you is called 'mindfulness'. This can positively change the way you feel about challenges, such as exams. We’ve added helpful tips, podcasts of free mindfulness classes and classes that you can get involved in. to find out more click the button below.
