OUR TOP TIPS – for achievement at Harrow College:
Set Goals and Seek Help:
A list of short and long-term goals serves as a road map for achievement. If you’re struggling in a class, take advantage of college resources – speak to your SPA, the Careers team or visit the LRC.
Manage Your Time Effectively:
To be successful, you’ll need to commit to a structured schedule that includes classes, study time, possibly a part-time job and social time. If you choose to work, adjust your commitments to ensure you have time to study.
Excel in the Classroom:
Attending every class is key to your success. Volunteer to lead a group project or attend extra study groups if possible. If you have questions, don’t hesitate to ask.
Take Care of Your Health:
Be proactive and develop healthy habits by scheduling personal time to exercise, sleep and eat well. See the College Enrichment team and consider picking up an activity such at badminton or football. If you ever feel overwhelmed, have a chat with your SPA or the Student Services team (see posters around campus).
