Five sample study routines for distance learnersPosted on 21/08/2019 by Jess O'Connor
When you study from home, finding a routine that works for you is paramount.
Here are some examples of great routines to inspire you to create your own.
1. The earlybird routine
A morning person, you’re usually up with the birds (sometimes earlier!). You get some of your best study done from 5 am onwards, coffee in hand. By lunchtime, you’ve already worked the equivalent of a full day – time to clock off for a nap!
2. The 9-5 routine
You treat study like a full-time job, hitting the books during traditional work hours. This routine is ideal if your partner or other people in your life work a Mon-Fri, 9-5 job, as it means you’ll have weekends and evenings off together.
3. The part-timer routine
You’re studying part-time so you can fit in study alongside a part-time job. Each week looks slightly different, so planning your days out in detail on a Sunday evening is essential. It’s hard for you to find long, uninterrupted stretches of time to study, so you do what you can, when you can, as often as you can. It’s not perfect, but it works well for you – and you get the best of both worlds.
4. The school routine
Studying while the kids are at school? You’re super productive between 10 am and 2 pm and often put in some extra hours over the weekend. If the kids are up for it, you might also do some study in the afternoons while they do their homework.
5. The night owl routine
You love staying up late. At 10 pm, when everyone else is drifting off to sleep, you come alive. You enjoy studying in the stillness of the night and get lots done between the hours of 9 pm and 2 am – peaceful in the knowledge you can sleep in the next day.
What’s your dream study routine?
Do you consider yourself more of a morning bird or night owl? Are you a part-timer or 9-5er? While you probably won’t fit into one routine, these examples will help you narrow down the routines that appeal to you. Then comes the fun part – building your own. Don’t hesitate to ask your tutors for help if you’re struggling to create the perfect study schedule for you.
