    How should I write this sentence?

    I don't have enough time to study as I would like to.

    OR

    I don't have enough time to study as I would like.

    Is that to really important in writing or can I just omit it?

    You can omit it.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: How should I write this sentence?

    I don't think that "enough" goes with "as I would like".
    So I would express it as either "I don't have as much time to study as I would like", or simply "I don't have enough time to study".
    I'm not a teacher of English, but I have spoken it for (almost) all of my life....

    I prefer 'I don't have as much time to study as I would like'.

    Re: How should I write this sentence?

    Both absolutely right, of course. I missed that completely while simply looking at "to".
