You can’t put it off any longer. Your assignment deadlines are looming and it’s time to focus!
Luckily the Library is open 24/7 so you can avoid all those distractions at home and come in and study whenever suits you best.
Make sure you choose the right study environment, whether you need to work in a group or in silence. We have now have a brand new group study room in LS105 at Sheila Silver Library and you can take a virtual tour of the room before you visit!
If you’re working on a group project you can also book a Student Meeting Room to help you prepare.
Don’t forget to take regular breaks as well, and keep hydrated (water fountains are in JG250 in Headingley Library and on the first, second and third floors of Sheila Silver Library).
Or if you do study better at home you can access over 140,000 electronic resources from your own laptop; get advice 24/7 via Library Chat and even send your work to a Library printer and pick it up when you come in.
Please save your work regularly. If you’re submitting your assignment in hard copy make sure you have topped up your Campus Card with credit and give yourself time to bind your work if you need to. Help on printing and binding is available on the Library website. And remember if you’re graduating this year only top up your print account with small amounts.
MyBeckett have a fantastic “Assignment Survival Guide” to help you if you are submitting online. (Go to the Assessment section and click Assignment Survival Guide). There’s also information about Turnitin if you’ve been asked to submit through this, including a video to guide you through the process.
But whether it’s online or in print please take the Library’s advice (we do have many years of experience!) and don’t leave it all until the last minute (or even hour!). Skills for Learning’s assignment calculator is a great tool to help you plan your time.
