As a university student, we can improve our study with the help of various types of digital products.

If I change the underlined part into "As university students," is it a perfectly right sentence?

By the way, what sentence would native English language users write to express the same meaning as the sentence listed above?

thx in advance~:)

Yes. The sentence beginning As a university student is wrong.

You might say

'As university students we can use various types of digital products to help us with our studies'.

Thank you! By the way, do I have to use "studies" instead of "study" in this case? Is "study" wrong?

The word "studies" is correctly used in the sentence in question. Use "study" to refer to something in particular, for example, the study of mathematics.
