Develop your study skills

At university you take responsibility for your own study and being able to study effectively and efficiently will make your time more fruitful and enjoyable.  Here are some hints on effective studying:

  1. Your study area should be comfortable, with sufficient light and air-flow to study for long periods.
  2. Plan your study timetable carefully, and stick to your plan.
  3. Be strict with the management of your time, so that you don't fall behind in your work.
  4. Look after your physical well-being - get lots of sleep, eat well, exercise at least moderately.

Curtin's Learning Centre has online study skills programs that will support you through your university study.
