Hi, I'm looking for advice from students that have been studying at SOAS for a while. This problem is not about SOAS only but about studying in general. I'm a fresher and I have never studied before. Even though my high school was demanding, I feel like I have literally no time for anything at uni, besides sleeping, eating and studying. I have 13 hours per week and when I come home, I need to do readings (manage to do only the essentials), take notes and write essays. I'm not writing this to moan that I can't party all week long but I actually hoped to keep on learning some additional languages and maybe signing up to some dance classes and I see no possibility. On weekends I either have to work or I'm too exhausted to move from my bed.
As I said, this is not a vent, I am looking for an objective advice, maybe some of you have any tips on how to manage your time even more efficiently than what seems to be obvious... I really don't want to give up on all my hobbies in favor of pursuing an academic degree only.
