How to study effectively
This factsheet was revised in September 2015.
Making the best use of your time
In today’s busy world we all struggle to find enough time to do everything that we need to achieve. This is particularly so when studying. Many students are balancing a number of other commitments such as a job and family responsibilities as well as study. Given the difficulty of juggling all these, good time management is vital.
An important starting point is deciding when to study. Some students decide to study for a small period of time every day. Some work better in the mornings while others are more effective later in the day. Others have just one or two days a week when they devote a longer period to study. You’ll need to decide what works best for you.
