College - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

College - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In the United States, "college" formally refers to a constituent part of a university, but generally "college" and "university" are used interchangeably, whereas in Ireland, the UK, New Zealand, Australia, Canada, Hong Kong and other former and present Commonwealth nations, "college" may refer to a secondary or high school, a college of further education, a training institution that awards trade qualifications, or a constituent part of a university.

Jan Terje Sundli's insight:

If you are confused about the use of the term "college" in the English speaking world - this wikipedia article might make things a bit clearer. There are big discrepancies in the use of this term. So much for standardization of international education :-)
