Managing Competing Pressures
- Try to figure out how you work best and organise accordingly – if you’re a bit of a night owl and are really productive at night, crack on! If you need a strict regime of three hours work a day, then do that. There’s no set way of doing university; it’s all about exploring what works for you.
- Should you need to work to support yourself, then there are plenty of jobs available on-campus and in the surrounding areas. Try to limit yourself to 8-12 hours a week of part-time employment to allow yourself sufficient time to study and take part in societies and sports clubs. Be realistic with how much time you can dedicate to part time work.
- Rather than stressing out about graduate employment and future plans, attend the SU’s ‘What’s Next?’ events in Terms 1 and 2 to get a sense of all the opportunities open to you post-Warwick.
- Ask questions – about anything, anytime.
