Moreover, a literature review will be produced, in order to recognize and present evidence accessible, focusing to support its academic work.

The interviews will be driven concerning two individuals’ profiles. The first one will be through students that during their course activities had any type of time management schedule control and secondly, those, that didn’t perform any kind of monitoring model, or at least did it, without clear understanding, which according to H. Kearns & M. Gardiner (2007) is essential to develop student's good study practice and study habits in order to achieve their goals and to reduce students afflictions about tasks. Differences were being identified by gender perspective, when the female profiles presented certain extra activities versus the males profiles, as for example, domestic tasks as cook, wash clothes or even clean their houses, another important facts and recommendations will be shared in order to help further researches to evaluate the based practice of time management for postgraduate students or even for general academic purposes.
