Why Are Study Skills So Important?

Effective study habits are not inherited; they are learned. 

Study skills or strategies are important for a variety of reasons.  Study skills are critical to your success at university.  They:

  • Improve your grades,
  • Help yourself understand, remember and apply the knowledge you are receiving in your courses, and
  • Use your time effectively.

Study skills and strategies use an array of methods to help tackle your process of organising and taking in new information, retaining information, or dealing with assessments (assignments, tests and exams).  For more specific resources and information, review each specific tab related to study skills.
