Student Support Hotline: the big issue, 1 – 5 May 2017; improving your time-management
I suppose you could say we are at the “pointy end” of Trimester 1 right about now. Major assignments are due, exams are just around the corner, and a lot of students are struggling to juggle work, and family commitments as well. It’s no surprise that most of the students calling the Student Support Team last week were asking for help with time management.
So, because we love you, we thought we would give you some information on where to go for help.
If you are on campus and time-management is an issue for you, you can organise a spot in a group Study Gym session on Monday 15 May 2017 in the Lamble Admin Building.
In a Study Gym session, one of our counselling team takes the role of your ‘personal trainer’ to help you boost your confidence, overcome exam or presentation anxiety, manage your time, avoid procrastination, and improve your concentration and memory for effective exam revision.
Spots are limited, and the sessions are generally very popular, so call 6773 2897 to book now for the Monday session.
If you are an off-campus student, you can take part in a one-on-one Study Gym Session over the phone or via Skype. Once again, the sessions are really popular – and are booked weeks in advance – so you will need to book ASAP on 02 6773 2897. You can also ask to be on a cancellation list. This means that, if a student cancels, and you are next on the list, and can make that time slot, you are in!
The UNE counselling team has put together a number of tip sheets for students, that cover all sorts of topics, such as managing priorities and studying effectively. You can also go to the ASO website for more helpful hints.
You can also watch the Preparing for Exams, session presented by Martin Collins from the Academic Skills Office and Counselling. It covers covers stress and exam anxiety, how to mentally prepare for exams, study and revision techniques, and practical tips for inside the exam
