Study

Urbanest is London’s dedicated source of student accommodation. With that we share a plethora of tips and tricks to make the most of student life in the UK’s capital city. However, ‘study’ is a big part of student life, and here on The Journal we provide advice and guidance on making sure you perform at your very best during your time at university.

Our study category aims to provide students with all the very best advice on how to optimise their efficiency at university. No matter what your subject is, we at Urbanest want you to succeed. Despite any fears that your set reading list might be longer than anyone else’s, we’re here to reassure you that all students are in the same boat, and that many of us at The Journal also survived the workload given to us by lecturers and course tutors. We have advice for you to help you through each and every essay, seminar and exam season.

To supplement our own advice, we regularly reach out to experts, whether leaders in business or in the medical profession, to give their thoughts on how best to get through the work you are given.

In this section you will find all our posts relating to study and making the very most of your time in front of your books and work. Whether you want advice on how to set up your desk to optimise your productivity, what to eat and drink to improve efficiency or even advice on how to balance study and sleep to be prepared and make the most of your chosen subject.
