We know that study and research plays a major part in your life as a UCC Student and so we have created a space that you would want to visit again and again.
Our main library is located on our main campus at 17 Worthington Ave. While it has been adequately serving the needs of our student population, a major upgrade and relocation is in the works. The soon to be opened cutting edge facility will boast a 60-90 perimeter screen which facilitates exciting and easy online research. It will be complemented by a well- appointed Reserved Collection. Our new study centre will also be outfitted with both relaxed seating and study carrels for a more private and focused study experience.
Making the transition from high school to University or from the world of work to the world of academia may be a bit challenging to make it a bit easier we have provided you with some study tips that will allow you to study less and retain more. Here are 5 tips you make your study sessions more effective.
- Go to class
With flexible schedules, different study mediums and greater independence sometimes attending classes may seem optional. However attending classes regularly gives you a head start on the review process and an indication of the areas to be tested.
- Note what is important
One of the most important rules of effective studying is knowing what to study. Take the time to develop a good note-taking method. It is a good idea that will never go out of style. Here are 3 suggestions to get you started:
- Write your notes for each lecture on a new page and annotate with your class date and page number. Properly sequenced material facilitates better understanding of new material.
- Leave blank spaces for additional comments that you may make at a later stage.
- Create a system of abbreviations and symbols that can be used throughout our course or better yet throughout your entire program.
- Review, review, review
Review your notes within 24 hours of taking them. There may be some unintelligible words that will interrupt the smooth flow of study at a later date. Use the opportunity to highlight and define any words or concepts that you do not understand.
- Power up your study sessions with study groups
Never underestimate the power of studying with your peers. Group study gives you the option of honing in and perfecting one area while your peers review another. Study groups force you to understand your material thoroughly as you will be required to explain it so that others in the group get a firm grasp of it as well.
- Quality vs. Quantity
Don’t focus too heavily on one topic to the detriment of the others. Rather spend sufficient time on a few key topics so that you have a better understanding of broader themes in keeping with your course objectives. Focusing on several key topics also makes the study process less tiresome.
