There are certain myths that we all believe about the university either because we’ve heard them from other people or because we feel like that just the way that things are. These are some of those myths and what the truth on the ground is more likely to be.

Even before we start the university we hear stories or people’s experiences at a particular university and we all want to go there. However, even if you aren’t able to get into the university that you want, it’s important to remember that you can still have a great university experience even in another school.

When you start going for classes, lecturers are going to hand out required reading lists like it’s candy and you might think that it’s impossible to get through the material or that no one does, but that can get you into trouble. Lecturers expect you to go through the required reading that they hand out, even the ones that they call “optional” and whether or not you read the material can affect your grade.

You Have To Decide On A Career Before You Start The University

Another myth that a lot of us go into the university believing is that we have to know what we’re going to do after school before we even start. However, that’s not true. While your first degree is going to be your entry point into the job market in some case, a lot of jobs in real life aren’t taught in school. Instead you learn on the job which makes it possible to go into a different field even after getting a degree in another one.
