What study space are you?

What does your study set-up look like?

It's been a long-standing tradition on TSR for members to share photos of their desks. We find they usually fit into one of the following eight types of study spaces.

What's your preferred style?

1. Immersive

You've basically given your room a new wallpaper of colourful Post-its, mind maps and other notes.

2. Artistic

Your study space is your sanctuary and you keep it organised and beautifully decorated. There's nothing like calm and pretty to help you stay relaxed and focused.

3. Organised

Everything is planned out in detail, and you know exactly what you want to study and when you want to study it by.

4. Got supplies

You've got a nice array of snacks, sweets and drinks to help keep your energy up while you study – you've probably got a kettle in your room, too.

Just remember: don't drink and derive.

5. Minimal tech

You don't use a laptop or the internet to study, all you need is your notes and textbooks.

6. High tech

At the other end of the spectrum, you've got every technical gadget under your belt to help you get through. One monitor is never enough.

7. Minimalist

There's no fuss here – you have all you need, with no clutter or extra notes to distract your attention.

8. Organised chaos

It looks like a mess, but you know exactly where the notes are for every subject. The moment you tidy up, you have no idea where anything is... so you don't.
