In the United States we tend to call it "college" as a broad term, though universities are large schools and colleges are small schools. I think there's an enrollment requirement for a school to be labeled a university.

College and University are different.

College = Diploma

University = Degree


I hate to break it to ya, but you can get BA's even from community colleges....and have you heard of private colleges? Some of those have Masters programs.

O i c, so does that mean that its more difficult to get into a university over a 'college' (college as in the smaller schools)?

I'm already in university :P.

Sorry for the dumb question its just that in Australia there are only really universities, government owned 'TAFE' and i guess obscure colleges.

I guess you could look at it like that. Most universities have different colleges that specialize in different fields like what you mentioned, but they're still part of the same university. Other colleges like mine have different "colleges" with different GE requirements and stuff too, but I digress.

God I hate GE requirements....I'm attending a community college (for starters) because I don't wanna be up to my eyes in debt after I finish school, but no matter what program you're in, you have to get some Physical Education credits, which I think is BS. I would prefer to take four four-credit hour classes per semester and be full time rather than take a bunch of classes worth one-credit hour.

Luckily there are classes like Snowboarding, Bowling, and Lifeguard Training (I went through the same stuff when I got certified a few years ago).

I don't know how that happened...

On topic: actually, I was always confused about the whole "college" terminology thing... But that's because I'm from Belgium, so English isn't my first language, and there are also differences in the US and UK terminology, so...

In Belgium, "college" means secondary education, though, the 6 years before you go to university.

Stop picking on the TS, it's a fair question. Not everyone here lives in the United States, hell, I'm not even that sure on how you guys differentiate them. Sometimes I hear them used interchangeably, other times they appear different.

Same here.

Some of you guys obviously don't realize that there are different terminologies around the world...

in the US college refers to a 4 year institution where you can get a bachelors degree post high school (or secondary school, whatever you want to call it), basically a school for undergraduate education. I think that's the best way I can describe it. I mean, "college" can refer to anything from a large university which has both undergraduates and graduate students or a small liberal arts college which caters to just undergraduate college students.
