Tips from other students

Ella Rea-Rankin

Ngāti Maniapoto
Bachelor of Arts in Psychology
“I’ve found it really helpful to use a diary to plan how to approach the workload and to set my own deadlines for assignments before the actual due date. Staying organised and having a plan reduces stress and helps you feel on top of everything.”

Bradley White

Bachelor of Education (Primary Teaching)
“As a ‘mature’ student, I wasn’t sure if I was up to the challenge of study at this level. Managing to do better than I thought improved my confidence and excitement at what is in the future. Of course, this wouldn’t have been possible without support from lecturers and the support services at AUT, including Studiosity and the resources available through the libraries.”

Ngāpuhi, Ngāti Wai
Bachelor of Architecture and Future Environments
“My advice would be to find your fun space, ensure that you enjoy your university time and always manage your time well through making calendars or lists which can structure your time. My biggest piece of advice is to always ask, and never be afraid to go to other students and lecturers.”

“My advice for students is to visit the AUT library website, read through all the sections about academic writing and attend the academic writing workshops held by the AUT library during the orientation before the first semester starts.”

“Creating a balanced study schedule and having a strong support system is the key for academic success. You can achieve this by managing your time outside of class effectively.”
