Studying online

Find the perfect study space

A dedicated space where you can study with minimal distractions will give you a solid starting point for your online learning experience. Natural light, a comfortable chair and somewhere to keep everything plugged in and charged is ideal.

Structure your study time

Rather than going in with only good intentions, plan how you will spend your study time in advance. Allocate how long you want to spend on specific areas and stick to it.

Reduce distractions

In our fast-paced, technology-focused world, distractions are everywhere. Get extra productive by putting your phone away or try switching it off during the period of time when you need to study.

Do what works for you

Are you a better learner in the morning or do you find the evening works better for you? This may depend on your existing work and family commitments, so structure your online study time in a way that is suited to your life. For some students, the right kind of music can help them to study more effectively. Others prefer to study in silence. Get to know what works for you and find environments that suit.

Get the support you need

Online learning should not mean unsupported learning. When you study online with Practical Outcomes, you get a dedicated trainer who is there for you from start to finish of your course. Your trainer is committed to your success and supporting you along your learning journey, sharing their own knowledge and experience to improve to your learning.

Don’t forget self-care

Looking after yourself is vital for learning and optimal functioning. Make sure you are doing the right things for yourself. This means getting enough sleep, eating healthy meals and exercising regularly. Don’t forget to reward yourself with the things you love too!
