Mary I share their tops study tips for students studying at home during COVID-19.
Top 10 Tips from MIC for Students Studying at Home
As the COVID-19 pandemic sees the closure of schools and third-level institutions nationwide, efforts have been made to adapt to a new way of teaching and learning that requires students to study and complete assessments from home. These unprecedented times have forced students, lecturers, and teachers alike to find a new status quo when it comes to how they teach and learn.
The COVID-19 pandemic is not an easy time for students. Most third-level students have had to pack up their college lives within a few days and go back home, a transition that can be very stressful especially in the midst of a global health crisis. Similarly, Junior and Leaving Cert students have had to continue to study with the assumption that state examinations will go ahead. While facing into examinations is stressful as it is, students must recognise this time as an extended study break rather than a holiday.
While working and studying from home requires more focus and discipline, students must recognise that it is achievable by following a few simple steps including maintaining a routine, taking regular breaks, utilising e-learning platforms, communicating with lecturers, teachers and fellow classmates, creating a dedicated study space, being organised and most of all being kind to yourself. It is vital that students remain positive, focused, and work towards building a new norm during this uncertain period in their lives.
As we all adjust to a new normal and embrace studying and working from home, the Health Promotion Service team at Mary Immaculate College (MIC) have compiled their top tips to help students studying at home.
Remember, we’re all in this together and by staying at home we can all save lives and slow the spread of COVID-19.
