    Uni? Isn't that college? I'm confused, but that's not a big shocker there. :p

    No, they're not but hopefully it will teach me not to be such a wimp in front of a large group of strangers. :D

    Not likely, but hopefully.

    And I'm quitting my job! [face_dancing]

    No, they're not the same. Uni is short for 'University' and college is short for, um, well, 'college'.

    Universities are a higher form of education than colleges, they are definitely not the same thing. [face_plain]

    Edit: A college may be a part of a university, but a college is not a university.

    That's what I thought, but I had to make sure. My brain is being eaten by gray worms. I saw a picture of them. They were slimy and wriggling around on the surface.


    NOESS!!!


    Okay, I'll stop now. :p

    MM, in the US, the term college is used generally to refer to post-secondary education, so this side of the pond, what I said is right. Technically, there is a difference, inasmuch as a university is an institution with multiple colleges (same as there, but here usually distinguished pretty much solely by subject taught, such as a college of engineering or one of liberal arts), but we're not picky about the terminology.


    EDIT: So when you say uni, and she thinks college, it's all good.

    drabba - it's not so much that we're not picky about it, as it is that we're lazy about our word usage...

    Sorry, I go by the rougher term of college. If I said University, people probably wouldn't know what I'm talking about. (Okay, the dumb people anyway.)

    I love college (or whatever you choose to call it), I really do, but speech class? Disregarding the dead usefulness of it, why do I have to take it? Why? :p

    Whining = over.

    Drabba, I saw Dr. Who for the first time the other day!

    The difference is pretty big in the UK, it's a lot lot harder to get into a Uni than it is a college. When people say 'Uni is the same as college' it's like saying 'Uni is easy to get into' when I had to work really hard to get into Uni.

    I hear you, MM. I had to work my tail off to get into college. Studying took up a LOT of my time.

    There's not really much of a difference here in the US. Pretty much the terms are used in place of each other all the time. We have junior colleges, which are for those only getting two year degrees, and we have four year universities and colleges. And there is a big difference between those two.

    Megan attends a four year college - or university if you want to use UK labels. :D But it doesn't mean anything here in the US.
