Your whole uni life will be about good time management, especially when the coursework, lectures, and exams start taking any social life you may have.
If you take the time to sort your priorities, you really will give yourself the best chance of minimal stress whilst juggling all you have to do at university.
Here are our top 5 time management tips to make your uni life a success…
Get A Diary
Or just any organisational tool you can work with and start filling it with lecture times, study time, work shifts and socialising.
Be super organised here and even write things down you may not think necessarily need to be on there, such as hair appointments, food shopping or even a last minute trip home. Being this organised will really benefit your years at university.
Don’t panic if you veer off course. You physically can’t do everything and you also won’t be able to make everybody happy at all times. Be realistic and take care of number one.
Make sure you factor enough time in here to eat, wash and sleep too.
We all do it and a lot of the time it’s subconscious, we don’t even realise we are doing it. If you do notice yourself avoiding the job at hand, look at your calendar and get back on the ball. If you avoid starting that coursework now, you will only have to try and fit it in at a later date when it may become last minute and rushed.
Look After Yourself
Plan in a bit of time for exercise during the day or week and also make sure you are allowing yourself enough time to eat healthily instead of reaching for convenience foods.
Feed your brain to stay super productive and alert.
Give yourself a good amount of time to try out your new system, say a month, and review your schedule and how it has worked for you. Is there anything you could re-jig to make it more manageable?
Find student accommodation
Where do you want to go?
Millstone is a brilliant place to live, Ive just book for my 3rd year. The staff are kind and caring. I have love living at Millstone as it has given me independence and a bigger family.
Searched for loads of student accommodation before I found this gem amongst the rest. Really nice sizeable apartments in a great student busy location. Would highly recommend Mezzino.
For a very spacious space with great amenities, the price is very mucb affordable. Good views and great support staff to help out at anytime of the day.
I moved to Mayfair Court 3 years ago and we love it here. My apartment is spacious and enlightened by large windows facing Wilmslow road. Commons, including a flourishing inner garden are well kept. Staff are friendly and always there to help, and the community is diverse. Location is very convenient. There’s a bus stop at the foot of the building, a supermarket across the street, Bodey Medical Centre behind the supermarket, and plenty of restaurants and pubs around. I'm happy to call this place our home while in Manchester.
Living at The Junxion has been a very homely experience for me, as from moving in on my first year of university I was a little nervous about living on my own so far away from my home in Liverpool; but that all change once I moved into my new room, as the buildings interior design gives off such a relaxing vibe that will allow you to study in peace. Although the staff in the building where so very comforting to speak to and will offer guidance on pretty much anything, as they are always there to help. Other than that I would highly recommend The Junxion to anyone as I am currently a second year living with my friend at The Junxion and I couldn’t feel more at home.
Highly recommend Mezzino Student living, it’s furnished to a high standard and is in the heart of the student area. Has very helpful staff and it’s well run in the office.
