Make a study plan
How you use your time is largely up to you but to be successful and reach your goals you will need to manage your time effectively. A full time university workload is like a full time job and other commitments must be fitted around the time you spend in class (course contact hours) and on completing weekly tasks, reading and assignment work (independent study time). Effective time management is essential to success.
