Enjoy Your Studies!

July 3rd, 2015

Megan-blogI’ve been working for The Writers Bureau as a Student Services Advisor for almost a year now, helping new and old students alike. Over that time I have dealt with what feels like thousands of queries, and with most questions repeatedly cropping up day after day I thought that it would be a good idea to offer you a few of my ‘Top Tips’.

1) Utilise Your Resources

The distance learning aspect of the courses can sometimes make you feel like you are on your own but, believe me, you are definitely not! Not only do you have the advantage of working with brilliant tutors, but you have an Advisory service that you can turn to for all of your questions and queries. We can be contacted by phone, post, fax, and email, so there’s no excuse not to get in touch with us. Our courses are more than just a set of blue books and assignments: there are actual people that you can talk to!

An important resource that some of you may not be aware of is the Student Forum. The forum is a place where you can speak to other students, discuss assignments, share success stories and even impress us with your best jokes! I’m sure you’ll be amazed at how useful it can be.

If you’d like a student log in send your request, along with your name and student number, to studentservices@writersbureau.com. You can use the same email to ask me any questions that you may have.

2) Use Your Two Years Wisely!

One of the best aspects of these courses is that you are able to submit assignments in your own time, at your own pace during the two year time period. This allows you to fit the course around other commitments, and even other writing projects!

Every student prefers to approach the time limit differently; some prefer to submit assignments on a regular basis, and others prefer to submit an assignment every few months and that’s fine. My only advice is not to waste time. If you find yourself taking a break because you’re losing interest, or because you’re struggling with an assignment, please get in touch. We can help!

3) Be Confident.

One of the biggest worries students have before starting (and during) their course is that their writing ability isn’t up to scratch.

Confidence in yourself can make a huge difference to your course, and your writing. It may be difficult at first, but you’ll find that confidence is a key factor in getting your work published. That piece of writing sitting in a desk drawer, or in a forgotten file on your computer, could have real potential. You will never know unless you try.

The last point that I would like to make is to enjoy your course. It seems silly, but the more you enjoy something, the more likely you are to stick to it. I wish you the best of luck with the course.
