Study Methods

A smarter way to learn

Learning Hacks is a study method course based on insights from a variety of disciplines, particularly that of Mind, Brain and Education (MBE), to teach students the fundamental truths of learning. Many myths prevail when it comes to studying. This course is aimed at uncovering these myths while teaching learners how to study more effectively.

Who is it for?

The Study Methods course is aimed specifically at school and college learners. It is aimed at all learners that often have the following concerns:

  • Am I studying effectively?

  • Could my time be used better when it comes to studying?

  • How can I spend less time studying, yet remember my work?
