How to Run a Graduate Study Group

Graduate school is a time of intense studying and in-depth learning, and working together with other students as you earn your degree offers many benefits. Are you currently completing a graduate degree and do you want to study with others? If so, then read on for tips on running a study group for your graduate program.

Create a Strong Foundation

To form a graduate study group that is effective, experts recommend that you involve no more than 4 students. After reaching out and finding interested individuals, decide on what day of the week you would like to meet and for how long. Your study group should consist of students who are interested and enthusiastic about the group. If you plan to lead the study group, then be prepared to help ensure that each session starts on time, its members stay on task, and essential concepts are covered during each meeting.

Prepare for Each Session

Before the beginning of each study session, you and the other members should determine which concepts you would like to cover. This step can be done at the end of the previous week’s meeting or through communication during the week. Typically, a graduate study group works on the topics that were covered over the last week. To help get the most out of each session and ensure that all members are on the same page, make weekly concept assignments to members and take turns discussing these at the beginning of each session.

Give Your Sessions Structure

After covering key concepts at the beginning of your meeting, focus on areas where anyone is struggling and take turns leading discussions. At the end of your sessions, offer a brief overview of what was covered and determine if anything should be brought up again in the next session.
