Study PlanStudy plans are schedules that designate studying times and learning objectives for specific courses or classes.  Similar to a work schedule or a school schedule, a study plan outlines exact times for certain days and specific courses.  Create a study plan to become more organized and hold yourself accountable for learning objective deadlines. While applying for admissions or scholarships, you may be asked to submit a study plan that will determine how serious you are in your objectives and goals during your study in China.

How to write a Study Plan?

You can create a study plan to become more organized and hold yourself accountable for learning objective deadlines.

Your study plan should include these important notes:

  1. Your full name
  2. Your most recent education (and the school attended)
  3. Achievements made while in school
  4. Outline learning objectives and assignment schedules when you start studying in China
  5. Future academic goals
  6. Outline Strengths
  7. Write your Weaknesses & your plans to counter the weakness

Steps to Create a Study Plan

Maximize your plan and its potential with these essential steps:


This enables you to discover how much time you are spending on each activity throughout your day.  For example, maybe you spend 2 hours a reading what you’ve been thought in class.  Create a time chart to take notes about everything you do during the day in school.  Be sure that the notes you are taking are very detailed, so later you can look at your chart and decide where you can plug in an extra hour of studying and where you’re going to lose an hour.


Your time chart should have helped you recognize and determine which days and what times will be the most beneficial for your studying.  Take those dates and times and update them into your monthly calendar.  If your time chart shows that Wednesday and Fridays from noon to two are your best studying sessions, then be sure you block those times off in your monthly calendar.  Writing it down in your calendar not only helps you remember it better but makes it seem more important, like a doctor’s appointment or using good leisure time.


At the beginning of each week or at the beginning of each study session, determine why you need to study, what you need to study the most, what you need to improve on, and what objectives or goals you plan to achieve.

Why do you need a Study Plan?

The study plan is a great tool to help your admission officers know how serious you are and also enables you to succeed in your educational endeavors.  It will aid in the organization of your schedules and make you feel accountable.
