Time management

It doesn’t matter if you’re a full-time, part-time, online or on-campus student, managing your time matters.

Plan ahead

Mark out all of your assessment due dates for each course for the upcoming semester, as well as any other important events on your calendar. It’s a great idea to also have a weekly and monthly plan so you can see what’s ahead.

Allocate time

Be sure to check the requirements of each assessment piece and how they are weighted, this will give you an idea of how much time to set aside for researching, writing and editing.
If you know you have an event and multiple pieces of assessment due in the same week, it’s best to start the process earlier.

Set SMART goals

Be realistic about what you need to achieve and by when. Your goals should be:

  • specific
  • measurable
  • achievable
  • relevant
  • time-bound.
