If a friend needed help and felt overwhelmed I would show them my way of coping and what works for me. I would try to help them find a balance and a system which they could implement on a daily basis to manage uni and their life.

Re: Life after school: Uni/TAFE

You'd be surprised how willing lecturers and unit coordinators are to help (especially if you're in a smaller university) so a lot of the time they can grant you an extension or give you really excellent advice. Also, all universities have some sort of student support team ready and willing to help you out with whatever problem you have (academic, residential or something a little more personal).

Re: Life after school: Uni/TAFE

How would you help a friend who was getting overwhelmed with uni/school?


I would offer to study with them if we were studying similar things or offer them suggestions on things that might help them (like the stuff I just mentioned - study skills workshops etc!). I'd also suggest they speak to someone about what they're struggling with because that's something that I think is really important. Or I'd just listen to them vent if they didn't want any advice.

Set aside a little bit of time each day to study so that I don't get overwhelmed with work later (and so I don't feel guilty about procrastinating!)

  • Set up a better timetable
  • Start going for walks (as soon as I'm no longer sick *coughs*)
  • Read all my chapters needed.
  • Remember to have me time (I have all the seasons of F.R.I.E.N.D.S on DVD, they're just begging to be watched!)
