Do you procrastinate?

Is it getting a bit out of control?

Join Dr Gareth Furber from Health, Counselling and Disability Services for a 5-week program designed to teach you the psychological skills necessary to defeat procrastination (or at least give it a good shellacking).

The program, written by Ben Smith and Gareth Furber, draws on ideas from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) such as mindfulness, defusion, acceptance and values and shows you how to apply these to developing a better relationship with your studies. You can learn more about the program at this link.

The 5 sessions (1 hour each) are delivered via Collaborate so students can attend regardless of which campus they are at. An evening program is also available this year for those who struggle to attend during normal office hours.


Studyology will run twice in 2022

– 5 x 1hour sessions on Thursdays 10am to 11am from 28th April to the 26th May – Online in Collaborate [finished]

– 5 x 1 hour sessions on Thursdays 6.30 to 7.30pm from the 4th August to 1st September – Online in Collaborate [currently taking registrations]

To RSVP to one of these, simply send an email titled “Studyology RSVP” with your name and FAN to and indicate which course you’d like to attend: the May one or the August one.

If you can’t attend these sessions, you can find pre-recorded sessions and materials on Oasis Online under “Studyology – learn how to tackle procrastination”.
