Basically, I've discovered I seem to be underinformed as to how university works. I'm in the 6th Form right now, and intend to study Law (or Jurisprudence or whatever), but don't really get how university is structured, like how you study, or what all these different degrees and the like are.
Any help you guys can offer would be much appreciated.

So you want someone to tell you everything there is to know about university?
You choose a subject, attend a few lectures/seminars a week, get drunk, then get a degree.
dang! they make me hand in stuff and sit exams on top of all that.
You have lectures, where lecturers talk at you. You then have seminars, where lecturers talk to you. You might have workshops, where the lecturers do nothing and you do something. You might have practicals where the lecturers show you how to do stuff.
Then you have assignments and essays.
You'll probably do an undergrad and come out with a BSc, a BA, or if you're doing law, an LLB. If you want to carry on you can do a masters which will make you a MSc, or MA, or LLM.
