From Anne-Marie Langford
In the audiogram (mini
podcast) our Learning Development Mentors help students with their studying
dilemmas. In this episode a student asks how to stop feeling overwhelmed. The response references a Gantt chart to help with planning assignments which
is available from the time management section of the skills
hub. The templates are at the bottom of the page.
Student-Led Study Hacks Hi! Paige here, a UON Learning Development Mentor. I’m also a student at the university, and I’m here to share my top Uni tips with you today! Let’s dive right into it with today’s theme of: Time Saving Tips Revealed. So let’s get an answer to today’s burning student question. Today's question comes from Molly from Psychology and she wanted to know. "How can I manage my time better so that I don't get overwhelmed?" One of the most stress-inducing things about being a student is when all of a sudden you have lots of upcoming assignments and what feels like no time left. I guess it's part of balancing the competing demands of life and its chaotic! Stressful as this is it is great preparation for many jobs where there can be competing demands for your time and attention and you have to find ways to navigate them. What I find key is to plan. A good starting point is using your timetable and to note down when you have free time and being realistic. A little and often approach can help as you can make progress with running less risk of becoming overwhelmed. You can also make this planning visual such as a GANTT chart and use big bright colours. Don’t forget, answers to more questions, links to show notes, resources and more are all available on the Skills Hub. Simply type skills hub Northampton into google and away you go.
