Enhance your study skills - in minutes!

You might not think that you have time to develop your study skills, but we have some quick ideas that anyone can find time for...

Got 5 mins? - watch a video tutorial, on essay writing or referencing, for instance.

Got 10 mins? - record yourself recapping the main points of your last lecture - it's more effective than copying up your notes.

Got 30 mins? - review your study practices with a Study Adviser and see if there's anything you could be doing more effectively.
