Get back into study

You’ve just been through O-Week and you’re getting ready to start a new year of lectures, tutorials and research and it all feels a little bit exciting and overwhelming all at the same time. Don’t stress about it though. Get prepared by using some of QUT Library’s resources on academic listening and note-taking; check out the information on the Study page of your Digital Workplace; and use Study Smart, a self-paced research and study skills tutorial, all to help you get the academic year started right.

Study Smart. Research and study skills tutorial

Once you’ve checked your unit outlines, use the Assignment Calculator to work out when you need to start those assignments to keep those stress levels to a minimum. And don’t forget that we’re here to help you in the Library with all of your researching and referencing needs. See (or contact) the staff in HiQ at Gardens Point or Kelvin Grove to make an appointment with a library specialist (face-to-face, telephone, video chat), or use our online chat or email if digital is more your thing. More details can be found on our Need help? page.
