1.4.1 Some Tips on Personal Organisation at University





  • Using a diary is essential. It will allow you to keep track of deadlines, tutorials, workshops and meetings.

  • You may find it useful to record all deadlines for assessments and exams in your diary, as well as planning the allocation of tasks associated with assessments.

  • You need to make a careful note of your practical classes and workshops. Some workshops count towards final module marks – so don’t miss them. Sign up for workshops and practical classes in the basement of the main geography building. Workshop leaders will have copies of these lists and will turn you away if you are in the wrong place at the wrong time.

  • Leeds is a big campus. You will need a timetable and a diary so you know where you are going. It takes time to walk between the lecture theatres, computer clusters and the School of Geography.

  • Notify your tutor if you are unable to attend a class or tutorial.

  • Get some ring binders for retaining and organising module handouts and also your own notes.

  • You should spread your reading evenly over the term.

  • You are responsible for knowing and keeping track of deadlines and dates for coursework submission. The University enforces strict penalties for late work. These are outlined in the University’s Taught Student Handbook and also your Departmental Handbook – make sure you are familiar with these important documents.

  • Most importantly of all, plan your study time well. If you are taking two or three subjects, try to spend the same amount of time on each one every week. If you start getting behind on one subject, it will be increasingly difficult to catch up later.
