A study plan is a chart or schedule that allows you to block out time needed each day for well-defined learning activities, goals, and routine daily tasks. It’s especially helpful when trying to make time between your work life, social life, and other responsibilities to do your schoolwork.
Things that can be contained in a study plan include: Reasons for your interest in the program you applied, including why you wish to study the program, your personal goals and ambitions, and evidence of any previous activities or experiences (including voluntary activities) which demonstrates your commitment to those goals and ambitions
