How to Make Your Late-Night Study Sessions More Effective

We've all been there; after procrastinating throughout the day, we ended up having to study through the night for an exam or pull an all-nighter to get an assignment done. Studying late at night isn't the best thing to do. The lack of a good night sleep and the very nature of late-nights make this approach less effective.

While late-night study sessions are often inevitable, there are some things you can do to make those nights count. Here are the best tips on how to make your late-night study sessions more effective.

Prepare Your Materials

Don't wait until late at night to get the course materials you have to read in order. Getting the materials for your study - or the research paper you have to submit the next day - ready during the day is a great way to prepare for an all-nighter.

It only takes a few minutes too. You can spend your coffee break searching for research papers on Google and bookmarking the pages. You can also gather additional materials such as books and notes, and then organize them to make going through these materials easier.

As mentioned earlier, these tasks only take a few minutes to complete. You can squeeze them into your busy day and be more prepared for your late-night study session.

How to Select the Perfect Accommodation for You

Choosing to study in another country is a big decision, and you want to make the best choices, so you have a stress-free stay. Once you have been accepted on a course, the next thing you need to plan is where you are going to stay while you are studying. There are many types of accommodation available to students with varying facilities on offer depending on both your preference and your budget. Here are some things you will need to consider before making your choice.

What Are You Looking for?

When thinking about your accommodation, you must consider exactly what your requirements are. Are you the type of person that wants to live on their own, or do you enjoy other people's company? Can you cope with sharing a bathroom and kitchen with others? There is also the comfort level of the accommodation to consider; do you want to have lots of amenities to use, or are you happy with the basics? Once you have decided what you want, it is easier to choose the right apartment to make you feel at home. If you are eager to learn the local language, then there are also options for staying with local families, as with any shared accommodation, you will need to be happy to reside in close quarters with others.

Luckily, with the right preparation, study abroad students can avoid headaches and embarrassing mistakes. Here are our top five tips from the experts.

1. Financial Aid

Worried you'll lose your financial aid because you're studying abroad? Don't! In the U.S., federal law requires that colleges and universities continue to disburse funds for students participating in approved programs. Consult with your financial aid advisor the year before to make sure you know what additional paperwork you are responsible for, as well as any deadlines.

Also, check your eligibility for any additional scholarships and grants at www.nafsa.org. Your study abroad year is more financially possible than you might think.

Ways Leaders Can Boost The Morale of Their Team

There is nothing as destructive in the workplace than having low morale amongst employees, and yes there will be times when it is hard and stressful, but to keep the morale up throughout the company is something that is extremely important.

Employees with low morale will not only produce work that isn't up to the standard that it should be, but will also drag others down as low morale has a knock on effect.

Quite simply, low morale can essentially make or break a business.

So what can leaders do to help keep morale high and boost it when needed?

Acknowledge/feedback

When an employee has worked hard and done a really good job, acknowledge it. Tell them. Give them the feedback they deserve. No one likes to work hard and not get a thanks for it. If the work the employee did had an end result then feedback to them what happened to it. Explain to them what went well and what didn't.

By providing your team with feedback on their work helps, to boost their morale as well as teaching them where they can improve next time, what needs tweaking to perhaps hit that target, as well as giving them positive feedback so they know what they can do again, that should have a good impact on their next task.
