Weekly Planner
Using a weekly planner to manage your time
On the weekly planner enter:
• scheduled classes, seminars etc.
• an hour for preview and an hour for review for each one of these university
commitments (ideally these should be scheduled immediately before and
immediately after classes, seminars and the like).
If your scheduled classes, seminars etc. remain the same for a number of weeks,
photocopy your planner (make a number of copies!) before adding anything else.
Then, at the start of each week, add:
• paid work obligations
• meal times
• sporting/recreational commitments
• online time
• family commitments
• social events
• ‘me’ time.
There should be some white squares left! What are you going to do with them?
Firstly, you have to decide how many hours you need per area of study – and block
them in! Remember, some weeks you may have a commitment all day Sunday and so
are unable to allow any study time; in other weeks you might nominate Sunday to be
full of study commitments – that’s why you complete a new planner each week.
How much study time should you allow per unit?
It is generally recommended you allow 10 hours per unit per week which includes
classes and seminar time. However some areas of study require more than this.
If you haven’t got enough time for everything then prioritising what you need to do is
the key.
Weekly planners are just one way of organising your time effectively – you also need
a trimester planner for entering exam dates and assignment deadlines to give you an
overview of the months ahead.
A daily list is needed too – what exactly do you intend to do in that two hours you
blocked in on your weekly planner for example?
Remember to be specific with your list:
• read McDonald chapters 3&4 (NOT ‘do reading’!)
• analyse assignment question 2 & make a draft plan (NOT ‘start assignment’!)
