How To Prepare For The Fall Semester

By Canadian Tourism College - Vancouver Modified on August 09, 2017

Plan ahead for a great school year!


Take on your new school year with confidence! Balancing your studies with other responsibilities can seem overwhelming at times, but there are ways you can make the experience easier.

If you need some extra money while in school, or want to gain some industry experience, having a part-time job is a great option. At Canadian Tourism College, classes are only 2 to 3 days a week, which allows time for this. Just remember to leave yourself enough free time in which to complete assignments and enjoy some social activities.

Planning your week in advance ensures that you can fully enjoy your time off when it comes around. Use a time management tool such as a planner or an app to create a schedule that works for you. When it comes to studying, some helpful tips include creating a list of priorities, making sure to take occasional breaks, and avoiding distractions like TV. If all else fails, ask your instructor for advice—they are there to make sure that you succeed.

Another important aspect of student life is dealing with your budget. Many people take out a student loan to pay for their schooling, which means it is very important to keep track of expenses while in school. Create an excel spreadsheet or use an app to plan your budget so that you know where your money is going. You can also save money by buying groceries and making meals at home rather than going out, and finding free or discounted activities to do in your spare time.
