How to Study in University [as a Science Student]

Studying as a Science Student has three stages: things that you do before class, during class, and after class. Let’s go through them quickly.



How you will study as a Science Student is different from any other program. Consider all the types of information you need to commit to memory: theories, formulas, applications and… you get the picture. Don’t fret! All you need is discipline. Studying for Science courses has three stages: things that you do before class, during class, and after class. Let’s go through them quickly.


  1. Before class, read or scan your textbook readings. This way, you’ll be familiar with the material that is going to be presented to you. You may even have questions that will be answered during the lecture.

  2. During class, put away any distractions. Yes! This includes your phone. Make sure to ask questions as soon as you don’t understand something. It’s important to pay attention to announcements, dates, deadlines, and sometimes midterm and exam information and hints! It’s important not to take crazy detailed notes during the lecture, but make sure your notes are clear and get to the point.

  3. After class, re-read and re-write your notes into a condense form, highlighting the most important topics. Do practice problems and review what you are having difficulties with.

This is the recipe for success! Keep to it and you’ll build a strong work/study routine. Best of luck!
