Study Well

Being at Queen Mary is not just about studying, it's about study well. The exam season is here again, and we want to support YOU and help YOU in this often stressful time. As part of your exam support, we will be running drop-ins and workshops, and fun, stress-free and relaxing sessions.

There is plenty going on across campus, so if you need help with your study and revision or a break from your revision or just need to take your mind off exams, download or/and pick up the Exam Planner to help you. 

All the University activities in the Exam Planner are FREE.

Advice and Counselling Service:

ACS x HSS x S&E: Pomodoro Sessions: 8th April - 24th May, 3pm - 5pm, Graduate Centre (various rooms)

The Pomodoro Technique involves breaking your work into manageable 25-minute intervals, each followed by a short break. This approach has proven effective in boosting productivity, concentration, and minimising procrastination. Adopting the Pomodoro Technique can help you organise your study sessions efficiently, maintain focus, and prevent burnout. We encourage you to drop in at any time during the sessions, running on Monday and Thursday afternoons, to discover how this technique can positively impact your study routine.
