Don’t pack your books away until you go back to varsity again, instead, recap on all the academic work you’ve been doing. This is a great way to keep your mind active and to start planning for next semester while you have time. And there’s no time like the present!

Draft Your CV

Prepare for the future by getting advice or help for drafting your CV – you never know when an opportunity may present itself.

Visit Family

Visit your loved ones and enjoy the benefits of being home – Mom’s cooking, satellite TV and spending quality time with the family.


Exercise to combat the holiday bulge. You’ll look – and, more importantly, feel – better. Remember to read too.

Look For A Part-Time Job

You might as well start looking into ways of making extra money but that won’t impact on your studies. This can be anything from applying for internships within your field of study, volunteering or waitressing during weekends.

Clean Up

Now is also the perfect time to get everything in order, starting with your room, laundry and everything else that you’ve been neglecting. Less clutter in your living space helps you feel more organised and in control.

Book Your Learner’s Licence

If you do it now, you won’t have to skip classes to queue at the licensing department all day. You’ll be less stressed and can focus on the test without having to rush back to class.

Look For Bursaries

No matter how far you are in the year, it’s never too late to look for funding opportunities that may help ease the financial strain of your education.
