It can be a big change when you make the switch from a school or college to university, and with many students staying on in sixth-form and then heading to higher education, there are some things you should know.
University is quite often about independent learning, and you have to be motivated to work on your own, meet deadlines, revise, research, and visit the lectures, workshops and seminars. Without that drive and determination you’ll likely struggle with the university workload, while group work, making friends and taking leadership is also important.
Lecturers may not be quite as strict as your previous teachers, and that’s because they do not need to be. You are paying for their time and if you decide to reject their advice and wisdom then they do not necessarily have the obligation to chase you up and demand attention. Make sure you’re ready fro that step, and ready to work hard for your bright future.
