Greets. I have to introduce myself on card. I guess i need to do it by はじめまして わたしは(name) です。よろしくおねがいします and after it i need to say a bit more about me.
So first question is: Should I write よろしくおねがいします right after i wrote my name and BEFORE i say something more or AFTER say i am university student?
Second question: 大学の大学生 is correct?
Third: What can i use instead わたしわ?
I hope it is a right section.

If it's just for self-introduction, you don't need to say よろしくおねがいします.

2)
There is a word 大学生.

3)
(name) と申します.

Can you please expand on this? I was taught to say よろしくお願いします at the end of my 自己紹介 by my teachers.

I generally do:
初めまして。
私は(name)と申します。
アメリカのミシガンに来ました。
よろしくお願いします。

Am I doing it wrong?

Thanks!

There is no problem when you say it aloud, but the OP is talking about the case of "introducing himself on card".

Thank you for your answers! But I want to be clear. I say よろしくお願いします when introduce myself using verbal way. When I do this with non-verbal method is it a mistake or just I can say, but when i dont I am not rude person?

You can use よろしくお願いします, but it's usually not used on card. Therefore I wrote "you don't need". If you are writing a letter, there is no problem to use it.
