Terri wanted to know what the difference is between a college and a University in the UK.
Universities are for over 18s, and are where you go to study for a degree - your Batchelor's Degree, your Masters, your Doctorate. They are often the focus of a lot of academic research too.
Colleges are much more mixed.
Most of our colleges are for over 16s. They can be a stepping stone between school and Uni, but they also teach more vocational skills - electronics, various building trades, etc. This is the type of college that my daughter goes to.
However, some schools for under 16s also call themselves colleges - we have a boarding school near here that is called Kent College (costs more than I earn) while another less reputable school is called a "Community College".
In addition, some Universities are sub-divided into Colleges. My son's Uni is one of these, having about 8 different Colleges. Each college has a different ethos - similar to fraternities in the US? One is very sporting, one is nerdy, one is for party animals, etc. Helps new students to place themselves with people with similar interests, or at least away from those with opposite interests!
So may daughter goes to College, while my son is a member of a College at a University...
Hm, was that the dullest blog post ever?
