Most students find university very different from school. One of the biggest differences is that university students are expected to manage their time themselves. Although staff will help, it is the students' responsibility to be in the right place at the right time and to hand homework in on time. The way teaching is organized is also very different from school.
At university, lectures teach classes that may last two or three hours and can include 300 – 400 students. There are usually other smaller classes where students can discuss subjects they find difficult, and from time to time lectures spend time with individual students, talking about work they have done. If students are not living at home while they are at university, there are many ordinary things they may have to do for themselves, such as cooking.
