stressed student

Learning how to break tasks down, prioritise and create realistic plans can seem like a chore. This is not the case at all; in fact, when you manage your studies effectively, you may find that you have more time, not less. You will also be more motivated and confident, and you will avoid a build-up of tasks that need completing.

Multiple demands from your course, if not managed well, can lead to you feeling overwhelmed. This can increase your stress levels and may result in you being unable to complete tasks to a standard that reflects your ability, by the submission deadline. Managing your workload effectively will help you to keep up with the pace of study and reduce the pressure.
