    My first university assignment (we’re not getting graded on them) is “what have you most enjoyed about your course so far and why? And what has most surprised you about your course and why?”. We have to write in an academic style and in third person. How do I go about answering a question about my personal experience in third person?

    I'd say just write it initially in the first person to get your answers down. Then edit it into a third person report.

    Don't worry too much - just do your best. It sounds like this is an assignment to help you get used to academic writing rather than anything they expect you to be perfect with from the start.
