Queen Mary is a member of Réseau-F, an inter-institutional community of postgraduate students in French and Francophone Studies at masters and doctoral level. The network offers subject-specific training, to complement existing institution-based generic skills training, and hosts events across participating institutions. These include regular work-in-progress seminars and one-day workshops; there is a dual focus on skills development and identifying emerging trends in the discipline, with input from both peers and experts. More information is available on the network's website.
