Do you find it difficult to start studying on your own? Bring what you are currently working on and meet up with other students in the same situation.
At Study Group, a workplace and study structure are provided, and Study Counsellors and the Psychological Counsellor from the Faculty of Medicine are available to ask for advice on study techniques and stress management.
Each session begins with an introduction to the Pomodoro study method. Following this, each student sets up their own goal for the session. Then we work alongside one another in 15 minute intervals with 5-15 minute long breaks between.
Time: Thursdays at 14.30-16.30
Place: Due to current Covid restrictions, the Study Group sessions are held online via Zoom.
To participate, send an email to: elin [dot] linderberg [at] med [dot] lu [dot] se
Support with Reading and Writing
If you are a student with a disability, many forms of pedagogical support are available for you at the Faculty of Medicine, in order to facilitate your studies.
If you make reading mistakes often, read slowly or experience difficulty concentrating when reading, it may be very helpful to listen to your course literature instead. Help is available, from the Faculty’s libraries for example, but first you need to officially apply for pedagogical support at Lund University (see link below).
Once you have received your official decision for pedagogical support, contact Krister Aronsson at the library of the Faculty of Medicine for a meeting, to receive access to audiobooks and other resources. The TorTalk speech synthesis programme, and the spelling programmes StavaRex and SpellRight are available for all students on the Faculty's student computers.
