    • So basically speaking College is higher than High School? LOL, I always thought it was other way around.

    • After I posted the response, I realized that this is different in other countries. Here in the US, we have junior colleges (2 year degrees which allow you to continue on for bachelor's degree, or vocational certificate), colleges (4 years, bachelor's degrees) and universities bachelor's, masters, Ph. D., and professional degrees.

Have an opinion?

    • I don't think so because we have College and after when you finish the subject you doing, depending what grades you will get, you can apply to the university.

    • In UK college is A-levels that is still second level - In america college is third level

  • High school comes before college, graduation after grade 12. College is school you pay for to Pursue a degree in a certain field you plan to utilize for your career.

  • Highschool in the US is their secondary school and sixth form, and their college is equal to university, and our university has no equal.
