Success in your paper Academic study is intellectually challenging. To come to grips with the content in your paper, what it means, and how it is applied, you need to do the following:
• attend all lectures and hear key concepts and theories explained by your lecturers, who are experts on their subjects • attend all workshops to make sense of what you’ve learned and to apply it to authentic scenarios • read all material given by your lecturers, make notes on it and make sure that you have grasped the information • undertake three hours study for every one hour of lectures – draw up a weekly timetable to help with scheduling your study time • complete all assessments
All your lecturers want you to do well and to be well. Make sure you use the many student support services on offer at AUT, if you feel that you are struggling with your studies.
