Managing study and time: What's in this guide

This guide covers the main ways to organise your study and time to get the most from university study while minimising stress.

Managing study and time

As you learn, you settle into habits and routines. Getting these habits right makes your study more effective and less stressful.

This guide covers some of the main strategies that can help you study well, especially in managing time.

Always compare the advice here to your own current habits. Identify what's working (and not) in the way you're studying, and think about how these can work with your strengths/weaknesses.
