What is the difference
pupil and student?
Both mean someone who is learning/studying.
Pupil is more generally used of schools; student is more generally used of colleges and universities.
Here, pupils are usually children, students are adolescents or adults.

"Student" generally implies that they take some responsibility for their own learning, though pupils can do that too, of course.
