Essential to the smooth progress of your studies is your study ability, i.e. how personal resources, study skills, study environment and teaching and guidance promote your studies. Essentially, study ability is a student's work ability. Your study ability influences your learning results, study success and well-being. The good news is that you can do a lot to improve your study ability! Some factors related to study ability might be difficult to change if you're fighting for them alone, but together with your student association, Student Union or the staff of your school, you can even change matters that touch all students.
1. Personal resources
Personal resources include your personality, situation in life, social relations, physical and mental health and habits related to health. Moreover, social support, life management and a sense of your resources and abilities being enough are important factors in study ability.
2. Study environment
Study environment encompasses your physical, mental and social environment. Your physical environment is made up of different study environments and study conditions, such as recreation rooms and the organization of studies. Your mental and social environment include e.g. interaction between the staff and students, study atmosphere and study communities. Peer activities also play a central part in study ability.
3. Study skills
Study skills are a student's professional skills and correspond to a worker's expertise. Study skills include e.g. computer skills, problem solving skills, learning styles and strategies, critical thinking skills, social skills and the significance you place on your studies. Other important study skills include planning skills and time management.
4. Teaching and guidance
Receiving competent teaching and guidance is a crucial factor in study ability. Teaching and guidance include e.g. interaction between the student and teacher and receiving and giving feedback. Also central to teaching and guidance is how students are connected with the study community.
