At university the way you learn may be different from at school or college. How you are taught will largely depend on your course content, level of study and your academic tutor – but, however you are taught, you will be required to undertake a large proportion of your study independently.
A stronger emphasis is placed on teaching you to apply information. This might mean being asked to answer questions where there’s no right or wrong answer, but scope for opinion and debate
You will be encouraged to read widely, to question and analyse what you have read, and to discuss openly your own ideas in seminars and tutorials.
