Between procrastination and deadlines, most of us find ourselves in a battle to get things done. Don't worry, we got your back.

We all know it’s easier said than done, procrastination is a bitch, and we have all been at the mercy of its claws. So here's a little guide on how to best manage your time.


There is no real science to it, and different things work for different people. If you are doing your studies part-time, around work or other commitments, you may be equally busy and have to remain motivated in your studies over some years. So it's best to try and keep your priorities in check.

Making efficient use of your time is important. Contact time with your programme staff may vary, and independent study will be a part of your learning experience, especially during your dissertation.
