Tips of Study Habits for International Students

Dear students,


Now comes the new semester, we all expect  to welcome the exciting moment. It’s a fact that students are responsible to try the best in studying at school, however  it’s necessary to keep in mind that everyone need a good  habit. Here are some tips for you.


1.Do not do too much studying at one time.


When you become tired your studying is less effective. Taking short breaks will restore your mental energy.


2.Plan specific times for studying.


3.Try to study at the same times each day.


Studying at the same time each day establishes a routine that becomes a regular part of your life, just like sleeping and eating. When a scheduled study time comes up during the day, you will be mentally prepared to begin studying.


4.Set specific goals for each study time.


Goals will help you stay focused and monitor your progress. Simply sitting down to study has little value. You must be very clear about what you want to accomplish during your study times.


5.Start studying when planned.


Do not procrastinate. You may delay starting your studying because you don’t like an assignment or think it is too hard. If you procrastinate for any reason, you will find it more difficult to get everything doneon time. You may rush to make up the wasted time resulting in careless work and errors.


6.Work on the assignment you find most difficult first.


Your most difficult assignment will require the most effort. Start with your most difficult assignment since this is when you have the most mental energy.


7.Review your notes before beginning an assignment.


8.Tell your friends not to call you during your study times.


Two study problems can occur if your friends call you during your study times. First, your work is interrupted. It is not that easy to get back to what you were doing. Second, your friends may talk about things that will distract you from what you need to do. Here’s a simple idea – turn off your phone during your study times.


9.Call another student when they have difficulty with an assignment.


10.Review your work over the weekend.


These ten study habits can help you throughout your education. Make sure they are your study habits.
