Use the dedicated office hours! Spending time with lectures before or after class is no longer embarrassing. In fact, it may be what helps you in your next assignment or exam. All GBS lectures will inform you when these hours are scheduled.
#11. Be responsible
Just because you think you can skip most of your classes and get the PowerPoint presentations or notes online (Moodle), it doesn't mean that you should. Attendance is absolutely critical for success in your undergraduate diploma. The PowerPoint slides are only to guide you along the way and only cover a small portion of what we do in class. Another lesson Learned!
#12. Talk to us
Check in with your Academic Coordinator/Registrar if you have any problems or questions during your undergraduate diploma. They are there to help you. The importance of communication is key.
#13. Be yourself
Remember, what works for one person might not necessarily work for you. Find your "spot" to study and grow to love it. This will help when studying for important exams as it will feel comfortable and familiar. Routine is an important part of work and you need to recreate the same environment to keep you focused.
#14. Study Abroad Experience
If you have the opportunity, study abroad. A semester or year experiencing a different country and culture, away from everything you know, is an once-in-a-lifetime experience. Galway Business School offers the opportunity to complete a year or even a semester aboard in Canada during your undergraduate diploma. Studying abroad will teach you a completely new way of life and culture and is too good an opportunity to pass up easily!
#15. Make connections
Because of the intimate setting of Galway Business School, it offers its students a boutique atmosphere and collaboration happens a lot more frequently than most undergraduate courses in Ireland. Networking will benefit both your personal and professional life.
