Don’t forget the liability insurance!
This is the continuity of school insurance!
Civil Liability is mandatory and will be requested when registering for higher education. It covers damage caused to a third party in your daily student activities (internship, babysitting, outings, etc.).
At university, you will be required to deliver personal work every day. So you have to learn to be more independent because no one will be there to remind you to do your homework! Make your own schedule to avoid unnecessary stress.
Create review sheets
No more random learning! To better understand your lessons, make review sheets by highlighting the parts to remember. These small documents will be your best allies to review effectively and follow your program day by day.
Don’t rely on your classmates’ notes
In class, note taking plays an important role in memorizing information. If you take other people’s notes, you may find it difficult to understand everything. So it’s in your interest to write everything down yourself.
Avoid sitting at the back of the amphitheater
Sitting in the back won’t make the workload that awaits you go away. Book yourself a seat in the front row to put yourself in a hardworking mindset!
Don’t Underestimate CMs
At university, you will have two types of courses: CM (lectures) and TD (directed work). CMs are not mandatory but are still essential.
Join working groups
You have everything to gain by joining working groups! From the first days after the start of the school year, think about forming or joining a work group. You will be able to help each other and build friendships.
Being part of a group of students allows you to take a step back from your work because you benefit from several points of view on the same subject!
Don’t get distracted
Success depends on independent and regular learning. Students who struggle to adhere to this concept inevitably fail.
You have to work the flexibility of your schedule in your favor, devoting more time to work. That said, you also have to make time for hobbies and friends so as not to crack.
Go to university libraries
If you sometimes have trouble revising at home and need a quiet place to concentrate, consider university libraries. These places provide a favorable framework for research work.
Don’t go out every night
If you’re the party animal, limit sleepless nights on weekdays during the school year! Lack of sleep greatly diminishes the ability to concentrate.
Don’t revise everything at the last moment
Don’t put off what you can do today. If you delay the accumulated work for a whole semester, you will be overwhelmed and you will not find the time to understand everything and memorize everything correctly. Don’t fall into this trap!
” A healthy mind in a healthy body “. To maximize your chances of success, think about doing a sporting activity. This parenthesis will allow you to disconnect from the study routine in a healthy way. You can ask your school about sports licenses. Athletics, cycling, judo, dance, volleyball, handball, rugby, football, badminton, … It’s up to you to choose the sport you prefer!
Food has an effect on our brain! Nutrients affect our health and our brain faculties. Avoid fast foods as much as possible and prefer foods rich in vitamins and proteins such as fish, meat, fruits and vegetables.
If you have political, social or cultural ideas, higher education is a good springboard! Through his newspaper, his YouTube channel or his radio station, you can spread messages and interact with the world.
Consider investing in a student association. With the associative activities, you will be able to develop new skills.
Choose your student job wisely
Students want to quickly become financially independent, and take advantage of their schedule to multiply student jobs.
Be careful to find the right balance between your studies and your job.
Do and/or benefit from tutoring
