Weekly timetables

You can use a study timetable to fit in study, work and leisure activities around your weekly classes. It is up to you how rigidly you allot the remaining hours from week to week. The danger is that you may set impossibly high standards for yourself so that the whole system collapses. But is it is always better to have some system rather than none at all. The QuickRef on Study methods includes a sample study timetable and a link to a blank study timetable which you can download.

Your lecturer will tell you (or you can ask) how many private study hours, in their experience, are likely to be adequate to study their subject. For example it might be two hours for every hour of class time. This is a guide only, and there is evidence to suggest that, not surprisingly, the more hours of effective study you put in, the better you'll do!
