Perhaps: "take the opportunity to" study.

Matt's suggestion of 'take the opportunity to' is a good one. We also have the phrase 'to make the most of' (a situation) which can also be used to translate 'aprovechar' in some cases. 'Take advantage of' often has negative connotations, so you are right not to use it here.
