Reader Question...Can students choose their classes?

This one from Chanel:

"I was wondering how the students' everyday schedules looks like.  Can they choose classes as they please like
in the American college system?"

My answer:

It depends on the university.  But, it's quite common for students, especially in the first and second year to have block schedules.  That is, everyone in the same major in the same year has the exact same schedules and has no choice about it.  The students may have one free option they are able to choose.  In the third and fourth year, it seems like students have a lot more freedom in choosing their schedules.

But, take all this with a grain of salt.  Each uni is different!
