How to fit studying online into your life: 5 tips to survive
Between family commitments, working full-time (or even part-time), it may seem like adding studying onto your plate would be something you would not think about doing right now.
However, it can be a lot easier than you think to balance work, play, and online study all at the same time! Here are some tips to help you balance all 3!
Create a plan when it comes to your work and personal commitments, try to make a planner on what you have on that day, and slot in some time for studying online and focusing on assessments.
Always remember that consistency is key and the more you work on your course, the more progress you will make in the long run!
Procrastination is the enemy and it is very easy to get distracted. That’s why setting some boundaries with family or even friends, when assessments are due is vital with online study. Maybe declining dinner with your best friend does not feel good now, but thinking about your success, in the long run, is what should be your driving force when studying online.
Some other great habits could include:
Sometimes studying online in your own home can be boring and uncomfortable. Having a good study nook is ideal to help you focus and concentrate on assessments.
Everyone learns differently!
Online study suits a variety of learners, so what might work for some may not work for others! Understand what learning style is ideal for you: such as are you more productive role-playing your assessments than you are reading them.
