There’s a chill in the morning air, the leaves are starting to fall, and it’s time to dig out our sweaters from the back of the wardrobe. Autumn is on its way, which means one thing: a new academic year has begun. Whether you’re returning to campus after the summer break or starting university as a fresher, now’s the time to pencil in those lectures, seminars, group projects and deadlines so you’re on top of your workload from the get-go.

Because let’s be real...nobody wants to turn down cocktails to pull an all-nighter for a forgotten 9am deadline.

No matter what time of year it is, the Ponderlily undated planner offers flexible planning at its finest, helping you make the most of your time.

Here are our top tips for using it to its full potential during the academic year.

Set Your Goals

Do you want to boss that module with first-class marks? Or perhaps you have an ingenious idea for a dissertation topic? Whatever the goal, jot down what you want to achieve in the dedicated intentions and notes section. Whenever you’re feeling stressed or up to your eyes in revision, you can refer to your goals for a dose of motivation!

Plan Your Wanderlist

Whether it’s a wild weekend away with your favourite university society or interrailing with your flatmates, nothing spurs you on through revision season like the promise of an adventure. Dream big and plan trips big and small to make the most of those glorious post-exam summer holidays.

Monthly Spread

Thanks to the monthly view section, you can map out your projects, social occasions and deadlines so you can see exactly how much you’ve got on. This helps you stay on top of your priorities so you never have to worry about over-committing or not striking the balance between work and play. What’s more, the monthly check-in section allows you to reflect on your goals, challenges and progress to keep you on course.

Weekly Spread

From your daily to-do lists and lecture notes to self-care activities and appointment reminders, the weekly spread has got your back, day after day. It includes mindful prompts for daily intentions, tasks and positive habits, as well as a practical agenda-style view of the week.
