5 Things to Learn doing a Degree or Diploma Program in the ongoing Pandemic

COVID-19 has altered the way we do everything from grocery  shopping to attending international conferences to getting  married. For multiple reasons, there are many who opted to  pursue a degree or diploma program at C3S Business School,  Barcelona during the epidemic. 2021, a lot alike 2020 will be  unlike other years, so here’s sharing my take on being a “post pandemic Post Graduate”. 

1.Time Management is crucial

I cannot emphasize enough on the need of maintaining discipline in your  studies, especially with blended learning. Personally, I think it would be  far more convenient to attend scheduled face-to-face sessions/seminars  on campus than scheduling time out of your day to watch pre-recorded  content or ask friends for a quick overview. 

As a result, you have to be very organized with your time. You can use  my Calendar app to plan courses, seminars, and activities multiple times  a day. There are other applications like Forest and Hold that might help  you stay focused on your part time job and studies rather than browsing  through your social media feed. In fact, you should schedule time for  calming activities like phoning relatives or meditating.

2.Adequate Social Interaction
Social Interaction

In 2020, most of us have figured out that human engagement is so  imperative for our wellbeing. Being a master’s student is quite  boisterous, but for a change, if you live with flat-mates or family  members, attempt to do at least one or two activities together every  week. Let’s say for instance: Why not bake a cake together or fancy a  romcom with roommates? 

Indeed, in the event that you can’t have face-to-face interaction, you  may choose to video call a loved one to encounter that human touch. In  case you’re fortunate enough to still have grandparents, I’m sure they’d  be delighted to see your face, even through a screen!

3.Communicating With Batch Mates Can Be Life changing

While Professors and business school staff are continuously there to  support you, in some cases you may be more comfortable routing certain  queries or concerns towards your peers. The Business School might have  chat groups for all its degree and diploma programs for ease and comfort  of communication with your batchmates. 

Studying by yourself can be confining, and it’s imperative to know that  you’re not in this alone. For instance, if you’re stuck somewhere doing  an assignment; seeking support or guidance from a friend or classmate  can be really helpful.

4. Avoid being a Couch Potato
Self Care

Since many of the things we do are presently online, it can be tempting  to sit idle around all day without much physical movement. Take care of  your physical and mental wellbeing by working out! Barcelona has  beautiful landscaping and beach shores and green spaces. Take a stroll,  do yoga on the beach, breathe in fresh air, get going! 

Certainly, make sure to take some time off from your work and studies.  Inhale some fresh air by running, or have a dance workout session along  with your roomie. C3S Business School also organizes Physical and  Mental wellbeing workshops, actively participates in them, be a part of  extracurricular activities and games organized, all these will uplift your  mood and keep you fit as well.

5.Patience, Patience, and some more Patience!!

Relax!! It’s everyone’s first time going through a pandemic, so do your  best and try to be calm and comforting to others. There could be  connection issues and technical mishaps, so be understanding while  bearing with it. In the event that you have to do group assignments then,  support your group members by being reliable and doing your part well. 

C3S Business School is there to back you and are attempting their best  to ensure that students are happy. But on the off chance that you’re not,  you’re always welcome to give constructive feedback by either reaching  business school staff or your program rep. 

I believe these tips are valuable to all the national and international  students who are trying to make it through the pandemic.
