Organization of learning

Try to organize an inspiring place for your studies. You should have enough place for working on computer and for saving study materials. If you can, try to find at least some hours when nobody disturbs you and repeat what you have learned.

Time plan

Just like students who regularly visit lectures you will have to find time for studying. Try to make a good time plan in advance and then stick to it. Think about the days most convenient to study.

What to do before the course starts
  • Check if you have all the study materials or you should get some from the library.
  • Check time plan and put down themes in our notebook.
  • Read instructions received for the course, especially information concerning exams.
  • If you do not understand something, contact your tutor and ask for detailed information.


Activities during the course

Among your main tasks will be reading study materials, searching for information in magazine articles and on the Internet.

During your studies you will make some shorter tasks which will motivate you to study, help you understand the concepts and the main ideas of the course, and find out if your knowledge is sufficient for examination. Some tasks can bring you additional points for final examination.
Sometimes you will be motivated to make a small research and see if you can find some results by yourself.

Your lecturers can suggest that you write a diary in which you write your reflections, work and results, summaries of themes about which you have read and description of group activities. Writing your diary can help you because it provides a private sphere in which you put down your activities and think about your study approach. This can prove your teacher that you thought about the themes and worked on your studies.
