Are you returning to study?


Congratulations on returning to study (or contemplating returning to study 😉 ).

Browse The Study Owl blog – This blog is about all things study (including life – or what happens when you were planning to get some study done only to find the dinner is burning, the kids are wanting answers to homework questions and the cat wants to go out) and the things that challenge, encourage, perplex and sometimes even irritate us students.

The plan is to offer high quality content relevant to those of us who are returning to study no matter what your background.  It is also a place for you, dear reader, to contribute to a supportive community of students. Throughout my time as a student (let’s not talk about how long it has taken me to complete my studies) I have come across many study tips and techniques that have been central to completing a tertiary degree. Many are to do with time management and planning as well as what to do when you get feedback from teachers/lecturers you don’t understand or that leaves you feeling like you don’t belong as a returning ‘mature age’ student.

About the-study-owl

I'm Jen: long-time student, now lecturer, supporter of those with additional needs, psychologist, and always wife, mum, daughter, sister. I assist young people and adults to understand the ways in which they learn as well as helping them to work with their unique strengths and challenges. I also spend time demystifying maths and statistics for those with maths phobia. As a lecturer I am often asked to talk about studying (and academia) by students who are returning to study. These students come from all walks of life and have a lot in common in learning to navigate their new lifestyle of study. The blog is a way of sharing all I have learned in my own study journey and those of my students and I would love you to contribute to this supportive community.
