Study Well

A big warm Students' Union welcome to our Study Well campaign, an initiative to support you, help you take a break and improve your wellbeing during your studies here at Queen Mary. We know that studying can be a huge source of stress for students, whether that’s lectures, coursework, revision, exams, or any other form of academic activity. That’s why we’re bringing Study Well to you, to provide workshops, relaxation, activities, deals, giveaways, study tips, and more!

This year we’ve given Study Well an increased presence throughout the academic year to maximise its benefit for all students, such as those assessed purely by coursework without exams, those with assessments outside of the traditional exam periods, and students whose courses run later into the summer such as postgraduate students and SMD students. We're now approaching the final semester for most of you, where the number of assessment deadlines and exams increase, so we're increasing our Study Well activities to support you and help you take a break.

Despite the Covid-19 pandemic meaning less face-to-face Study Well events than normal, we’ve worked hard to create new online opportunities that will benefit our students and really help you to Study Well! Also keep an eye on our social media @qmsu for new features each day. Thanks to the university staff, Students’ Union staff, and student representatives who have all contributed to make Study Well what it is, and thank you to the university for their support with funding.

Make sure you look after yourselves and each other – and be sure to get in touch if you need anything, don’t be a stranger!

Take care, Jack
