Deadlines are something every student has to face whether you like it or not.
They are essential.
You can either buckle under the pressure or you can use our tips to make sure you achieve success on ‘hand in’ day.
An online or wall planner will be your best friend during your uni life, especially if you’re no good at remembering dates.
Knowing when your deadlines are is the first step to actually getting your work in on time.
Make a note on your new planner of your deadline dates but make sure they stand out. You don’t want them getting lost amongst all your social gatherings.
You know you’ve got deadlines and that you have to stick to them so it’s important to balance your time prior. Split your workload into sections so you don’t crack under the pressure of an epic writing session and end up throwing in the towel.
Splitting it up into dedicated writing days avoids procrastinating and eases the pressure of trying to get it all done in one go.
Start with the hardest task first. Once that has been completed you can continue the easier parts with plenty of time before deadline day and less pressure knowing you’ve got the hard part to finish at the end.
If you are a super procrastinator then you will also need to use your calendar/wall planner to schedule in that study time.
When approaching your work, consider what effect it will have on the quality if you leave it until last minute.
Rushing your work may mean you make more mistakes. You might not have enough time to proof-read your work properly also.
Of course, as long as you make your deadline then nobody can discredit you for that BUT do you really want to hand in your work knowing you could have done better had you spent more time on it?

What our students say
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.
I have been living in Brickworks about 7 months. Brickworks is a great place to live in. The location is really convenient (close to city center, good public transportation, near the supermarket and so on...). The buildings are pretty new (well maintained and very clean) it also offers study rooms, cinema room, gym, roof top party room and terrace. There are a lot of common areas for entertainment (PlayStation, Pool, table tennis...). Additionally, free coffee and tea services are amazing!
Brickworks team all of them are AWESOME. They are always up for helping... I highly recommend the Brickworks for people who need a place to call home... Thanks for everything.
Excelente ubicacion, atencion y servicio. Muy cuidado todo, las recepcionistas siempre ayudando y dando atencion. Lo recomiendo.
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.
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.
I loved it there !
Brickworks is a great home for whoever comes to live in Dublin for a while.
The friendliness of the staff along with the welcoming environment make for a great place to live. When I first entered the room, it felt like a hotel room : comfortable, modern and very liveable.
The neighborhood is as calm as it gets and you get to the most animated streets in 15mn.
The sunset view on the rooftop is the cherry on the cake.
