Studying – What to expect

University might be very different from your previous educational experiences, not only in surroundings but in social, cultural and intellectual aspects too. The most important skill you need to acquire in order to get the most of your time at University is that of being an ‘active learner’. This means developing an independent approach to your studies, developing a range of skills and learning to learn.
