Title: How to Study with Strategy and Get the Most of Your Overseas Study Experience

How to Study with Strategy and Get the Most of
Your Overseas Study Experience
  • Work hard and you will get good results, they
    say. Yes, discipline is a key factor of results.
    But if you want to have outstanding grades, or
    maximize your studying time, you will need to
    study smart. With discipline and a well-planned
    studying strategy, you can say goodbye to study
    stress and achieve a healthy balance between
    school and your life outside college.

  • Who wants to spend all that time studying and
    worrying about grades when you have a life to
    live, right? Study smart and plan your schedule
    well. Getting the best out of studying abroad
    depends on your time management skills.

  • Our Overseas Study Loan tips are based on awesome
    stuff that was written more than a couple
    thousand years ago. We will be taking a few
    quotes from Sun Tzu's book "The Art of War". And
    we will break down his lines into something that
    can be applied to your studying plans.

  • Sun Tzu was a brilliant general from Ancient
    China. He was - and still is, well-known for his
    war strategies. And up to this date, his writings
    have been translated to many languages. His
    wisdom has been used by many business people to
    achieve effective and efficient results.
  • If his strategies could work for others in this
    century, they sure can work for you!

1) Know thy self, know thy enemy. A thousand
battles, a thousand victories - Sun Tzu
  • Battles come in all shapes and sizes. Going
    overseas to take on a college degree program is a
    battle itself - you have to struggle with
    adapting yourself to another country and culture
    and also do your best to learn and excel in your
    chosen field. Regardless of which country you
    choose to study abroad in, you will face exams,
    tests, and presentations.
  • Some people know that mountains of stress are
    piling but they choose to ignore it. It is okay
    if you are the type who can prioritize and
    achieve good results by cramming. But if you are
    not, take some time to build your stamina to

  • The average mugger who does not have a habit of
    listening in class needs around four hours to
    figure out and understand each chapter. Two hours
    of reading, and two hours for practice. If you
    have been listening in class, you could refresh
    your memory in less than two hours.
  • Every subject has anywhere from 12-24 chapters in
    a textbook. So plot your course well. You know
    yourself best. So design your study plan to suit
    your needs.

2) He who knows when he can fight and when he
cannot, will be victorious - Sun Tzu
  • How long can you sit still at your desk in front
    of a textbook or assignment without getting
    distracted? There is no need to worry if you have
    the attention span of a gold fish. Training the
    mind is just like training the body. You need
    discipline to set aside certain amounts of time
    to get things done.
  • Start by increasing your study durations bit by
    bit. On your first day, you could start with
    around three minutes, then, gradually increase it
    by two minutes each day until you can study for
    15 minutes a day effortlessly.

3) Victorious warriors win first and then go to
war, while defeated warriors go to war first and
then seek to win - Sun Tzu
  • Plan strategic study time into your schedule and
    you will have a better grasp of dealing with your
    assignments, tests, and presentations. Being
    well-prepared reflects on your professionalism.
    And this will be a trait that you can bring into
    the workplace after graduation.
