Ready to Learn?

Going to school, college or University isn’t just about learning facts in a particular subject. It’s about developing a set of general study skills. These will help you throughout life, whatever the situation.

But what are study skills and how do you learn them? Rather than referring to one particular technique, the name is a really a catch-all for a set of study strategies. These are strategies that will help you in either the classroom or work environment.

For example, study skills or study strategies typically include efficient note-taking, concentration techniques, planning, effective reading and the use of mnemonics (memory techniques) to retain information.

However, it could also be used to refer to any skill that can boost your ability to study. So it could also include time management skills and motivational techniques.

Developing good habits

Study skills are individual-specific. What works for someone else might not work for you and vice versa. Importantly you need to practise and develop your own study skills over time. Only then can you increase awareness about how you study and become more confident.

According to The Washington Post, both researchers and experienced educators have found that all too often students don’t have good study habits and skills. Even worse they rely on strategies that don’t work, often at the urging of teachers and parents.

Says Henry Roediger III, a professor of psychology and brain science at Washington University in St. Louis and co-author of the book Make It Stick:

“It is somewhat shocking how many students just don’t know how to do it, which frustrates them and can turn them off to enjoying learning,”.

However, there are some general tips that will help you learn, whatever the situation. Below we provide 10 Top Tips to help you improve your own Study Skills.
