Life as a Student is incredible, challenging, enriching, stressful and so much more. Each year of your studies bringing an increase in pressure and challenge, the constant development of skills, methods and ideas allows for the continual development and achievement of goals. This series of articles produced in conjunction with the Scapegoat Science Newsletter aim to provide you with tools to develop skills in Student Life Management. With the ever-present threat of mid-semester exams, essays, reports, group presentations and quizzes, this series will offer quick snapshots to challenge your ideas, habits, and methods with the objective of developing your Student Life Management.

What is Student Life Management?
Life management is the conscious organisation of student time, tasks, self and money allowing for the setting and achievement of goals through entrepreneurial and personal skills.

Why should you care?
You are your own person and it is your choice to care, but by following along with this series there is the possibility to learn something new and to develop the ways you may undertake tasks to allow you to achieve your goals faster and more efficiently.
