Managing your time
Good academic writing takes time to do well. You may want to use techniques to make the best use of the time you have available for writing essays and projects. This will help you to avoid plagiarism, as rushing to finish work for a deadline might mean you accidentally fail to paraphrase or reference key information correctly. For further support with time management visit Camguides, the Wolfson College Academic Skills guide and the University guidance on Study Skills.
