Software for School - Syncing 2 computers

Alright, so I recieved this laptop from the university and they kinda want us to use it to research stuff and what not.

For research, Google is your friend.

As for transferring data, the simplest way would be to invest in a portable external hard drive.

You could also use your ISP's online data-backup service to upload data from your laptop, and then download the data to your home computer when you get home.

You could also use a sync program to sync the files between the two computers, but you'll need to research that further for methods and cost.

I believe you can also use Microsoft's Live Mesh, but I've never used it so I can't confirm how effective it'll be.

The last sentence is what I'm looking for, a program that would sync the files between two computers.
I'm going to look into Windows Live Mesh

It seems like Windows Live Mesh requires the 2 computers to be within the same network, I mean I'll definitely use this if there's not another program that can send over files to another computer while I'm at school so it's all ready for when I get home.

Isn't it the same deal with the requirement to be within the same network?

Not if you opt to use removable media. (See 3rd option.)

Something else you might look into is a remote desktop connection. For example, you can connect to your work computer (school) from your home computer and have access to all of your programs, files, and network resources as though you were in front of your computer at work (school). I haven't tried this so no guarantees. Just throwing things out there for your consideration.
