The Truth About the Time You Actually Need to Study

EVERYONE HAS ANXIETIES ABOUT ENROLLING FOR POST-SECONDARY SCHOOL, AND OUR STUDENTS ARE NO EXCEPTION.

HERE’S A MESSAGE FROM OUR ONLINE ADMISSIONS COORDINATOR, BRIE TIMINGS, ON STARTING STUDY WHEN YOU’re not sure if you have the time.

You have commitments already, and the thought of adding study is a bit intimidating, am I right?

I know that looking at the time needed to study is a bit of a reality check. But it all comes down to priorities

Remember how you wanted to go that concert last year [or insert similar situation here], but you you were scheduled to work? In order to exchange your shift, you had to work double as hard before the concert, didn't you? But you made it a priority and gave up other things to make sure you could go to that concert.

The same thing applies when you study. You make it a priority.

This is the time commitment we recommend for EACH WEEK for the Full Time Program:

  • 1-1.5 hours of study each day (could be lunch time, spare or evening)

  • 5 hours of clinic each week

  • 3-5 massages each week (could be a friend from school during lunch, spare, etc.)

This is the time commitment we recommend for EACH WEEK for the Distance Education Program:

  • 1-1.5 hours of study each day

  • 2-3 hours of online courses each week

  • 5-10 massages each week (could be a friend from school during lunch, spare, etc.)

The truth is, that while study will NEED to be a priority, it may not be as daunting as you thought. It all comes down to time management.
