Best study abroad tips

Studying abroad is a big step in every student's life. Here are some useful tips to take into consideration when starting the academic year!

If your goal is to study abroad and start the upcoming academic year off on the right track, a few simple tips can help you on your path to success. Here are five on how to make your experience abroad a great one.

We have compiled a list of useful tips to help you navigate your online studies and make the most of your experience abroad!

Break down your tasks:

Similarly to your normal life, you may be juggling multiple courses with online classes, assignments, readings, group projects, exams, and more. It is easy to become overwhelmed with the sheer amount of things to do! 

Make lists of your tasks and prioritize them by importance to ensure you don’t miss anything. Once you have mapped out everything you need to do, handling things will be a lot easier. Use a calendar or an app to help you keep track of your work, and set a realistic schedule to complete the tasks. 

Stay connected: 

There are a variety of online and mobile applications which can help with productivity. Explore your options and figure out what works best for you!

If you are distracted by social media, try a productivity app. Maybe you are struggling to find the right words, how about Grammarly or Thesaurus? 

The important part is finding what works for you, and making the most of it. Have a chat with some of your friends and professors to discover new and useful tools!

Create a routine:

Creating a daily routine in which you include study time is essential. Make sure you plan enough time for each subject and pick the right study method for you! Making notes or flashcards with key concepts and summarized details will help you remember the information more easily. Also, remember to balance out studying with other relaxing activities such as hanging out with your friends, going out for a walk or rewarding yourself with some well-deserved ‘me time’.

Did you know that snacking on brain food while studying is scientifically proven to power your brain? Don’t forget to eat some dark chocolate, nuts or apple slices during your study session!

Find a part-time job: 

Another great way to stay motivated, and help you enjoy your academic year, is the ability to have a job on the side. Not only will it help you to build your CV, but it will also introduce you to a broader group of people.  Most students who work while studying abroad end up having a great CV at the end of their studies and thus have a competitive advantage over those who do not have any experience.  

Reward yourself:

You may feel stressed, overwhelmed, and unmotivated. It is easy to get lost in the blur of days when there are things to do but not enough time. Try to set goals, make a plan that will help you meet your deadlines, and submit great papers. 

Don’t be afraid to reward yourself for your success! Maybe you attended all your lectures this week, studied an extra hour, or started an assignment you have been putting off. Well done! Treat yourself to a nap or dessert, an extra hour watching your favorite series, or that discounted product you have been eyeing on Amazon.

Supporting yourself during school times and stopping to congratulate yourself for doing something difficult, will help you stay motivated and support positive study habits in the future!  

It has been proven that studying abroad comes up with great benefits and when combined with an incredible experience both on an academic and professional level, it is a recipe for success.  If you are considering studying abroad in the USA or Spain, while earning experience and income during your academic year, we would recommend you to get in touch with Hospitality Academy.
