Time Management

Time management

Time management is one of the most difficult things to deal with at university. I’m a third year student, I work at 301 part-time and I’m on a committee. I’m sure lots of you have just as many commitments, if not more! So here are some of my tips for managing time:

– Don’t go back home between commitments you have at uni. It’s very tempting to go home when you have a few hours break between lectures, but even if you have the intention to do work at home, you’ll get back and realise you don’t have much time before you have to
leave again, so will probably just end up watching TV.

-Get a planner! Diaries/planners are so useful for laying out any deadlines, assignments or
evening plans you have, so you don’t double book and you can visually see how much longer you have before that next essay is due.

– Don’t try and do too much at once. It’s easy to get overwhelmed if you have lots to do, but if you think about everything in smaller chunks and deal with them one at a time, it can  suddenly feel a lot less stressful!
