Essential Study Skills: Time Management

BySimon Chesterman, Clare Rhoden

Planning ahead to allocate time in advance of deadlines doesn’t mean sacrificing the students social life (entirely). It does mean learning that a consistent amount of work throughout the academic year (which, after all, is pretty short) will earn the students better results than a few frantic weeks at the end of semester. However, if procrastination about study gets to be a habit, the students can find ourself in deep trouble at the end of semester. A well-organised study space, one that is organised to suit the students, can help to settle their into study mode. Some people like to play specific study music to help focus their thoughts: they play these pieces each time they work. Lots of procrastination occurs as meandering before students sit down and fidgeting once the students have sat down.
