Study Week Tips & Tricks



Sitting in the library and dreaming of more exciting times? Staring into the distance at the bright lights of the RTÉ links mast and wishing it was really the Eiffel Tower? Wishing the UCD lake was actually the sunny lakes of Italy or Lake Tahoe?


Would the prospect of an international career in some of these lovely locations make it all worthwhile? Check out The International Careers Fair 2017 this Thursday, December 7th, at The Printworks, Dublin Castle.The event hosts HR representatives from the European Union, the United Nations system, International Financial Institutions, Irish Government Departments, and other non-profit organizations. Also check out our online resources, Going Global and CEI internships, to help your international job search.


Would an alternative, less formal, study space outside of the James Joyce library help your study? Sometimes you just need a slight change of scenery to help keep the study week boredom at bay. Check out the Global Lounge, the Starbucks seating areas in Quinn and Conway, the Student Centre, the Richview or Vet libraries or the Daedalus building.


How about some free coffee? We thought some free tea/coffee might help you along this study week. To win one of 5 pairs of Insomnia coffee vouchers for the UCDSU shop – we’re asking you to take sides by commenting either ‘Tea’ or ‘Coffee’ on our Facebook status for this blog and tag a UCD friend you’d share our prize with!


One last word of advice… at the end of the day, it’s the hard work that counts! Sometimes it can be easier said than done to block out distractions and settle down to study. Well thankfully, a few clever people designed some apps to take those distractions out of your hands. Applications such as ‘Cold Turkey’ block famously distracting websites such as Facebook, Twitter, StumbleUpon, Tumblr and you can add your own websites too. Worth a look!


All that’s left to say, is to wish you all the very best of luck with your upcoming exams. Give it your best, and enjoy the Christmas break that follows!
