I don't see that much of a difference other than you don't change buildings?
In America we say college I guess because it's 2 syllables versus 5. But we do know the difference between university and college. Colleges are within the university; i. e. college of Life Sciences, College of Engineering, College of Liberal Arts... etc.
But the official name of two-year universities is: Community College. It's different because professors there aren't required to perform research/get published. Also, most universities require that the professor have a PhD in their subject, whereas at community college it's typically not a requirement.0

There is even less change in Ireland - Secondary lasts from 12 to 18 ( no college ) - Third level is next step.0
