How long should I study for at the library if I want to do further studies?Watch
I would love to do international journalism or something relating to Middle Eastern peace/conflict. My grades aren't that great so far and I studied a journalism course prior to going to university.
This year has been the worst academic year for me and mentally too, but I have been studying at the library 4/5 days a week for 3-5 hours. I am wondering if this will push my grades up slightly if I put more time in as I know most postgraduate courses require a 2.1 or a First.

Your most immediate need seems to be a question of how you can improve your grades. And that's a classical question of quality rather than quantity. Why is your (quite extensive) study time not yielding the results that you want? And for that you need some support from your university. Is there a study skills aspect of your course? Can your tutors help you optimise your study? Are there systems that enable you to identify your personal learning style? Busyness does not necessarily correlate with productivity.
