    Work differs from study it implies its own useful skills

    By virtue of the fact that work differs from study it implies its own useful skillssuch as setting goals, keeping a positive attitude, communication and time management skills which cannot be developed at university.

    Does it sound natural if I'm making a presentation? What would you suggest me? Actually, can "work" implies "its own useful skills". It sounds a bit odd to me.

    Re: ork differs from study it implies its own useful skills

    I'm afraid it doesn't sound natural or truthful to me.

    Re: ork differs from study it implies its own useful skills

    I've decided to make some amendments in the sentence above.

    By virtue of the fact that work differs from study it involves abilities that one cannot develop at university, such as setting goals, keeping a positive attitude, communication and time management skills.

    I bet it sounds much better now, doesn't it?

    Re: ork differs from study it implies its own useful skills

    I still don't think it sounds all that good, but if you want to go with it, at least put a comma after "study."

    Re: ork differs from study it implies its own useful skills

    Boris, I don't know anyone who can be successful at university without developing good time management skills, and I know a lot of people that seem to have no goals and others who lack a positive attitude at work.

    I don't understand your use of "By virtue of the fact that..."

    You develop different skills in the workplace than you do at university. Some of the differences are...
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
