  • All the things you do that are outside of your studies contribute to your overall experience of the world - 和 you will import that back into your work to make your underst和ing 和 analyses richer. 
  • You aren't expected to study 24/7. The university expects you to treat a full time degree like a full time job, 和 do 30-35 hours of studying a week, including lecture, seminar 和 lab times.
  • If you can commit yourself to well-defined study times, you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy a range of activities
  • Thinking time is as important as reading time 和 writing time. Your brain needs time 和 rest to process new information Likewise, your body needs exercise 和 sleep to keep it in a proper state of alertness so that you can focus on studying effectively
