    Yes.

    University you get a degree from. You have to pay for the course (a big yearly fee). Most undergraduate courses are 3 years, medical courses like dentist, doctors are 6 years. Upon completing that you can go on to do a Masters degree in a specific subject which is an extra year (this is what I did), and after that, you can go on to do a PHD which is another 3 years where you have to write a huge massive thesis on a certain topic.
    In University you have lectures (usually just a few hours a day) and you go out drinking a lot, and do all sorts of crazy stuff in your spare time. You'd usually live on the University campus for your first year (and sometimes second) before moving into a house with your friends.

    College is an extension of school. Most people go to college after leaving school at the age of 16 (you'd wait to finish school at 18 to go to University), and you'd go on to study various courses that range from learning a trade, like carpentry, plumbing, bricklaying, electrician etc, or a beauty course (for girls (and some boys I guess)) IT and computers etc.
    Some people also go to college to do their final 2 years of school instead of staying in school to complete those exams.
    The qualification you'd gain from college varies from course to course. The qualification I'm getting for example is a Level 2 diploma and NVQ in Electrical Engineering. I'm also getting some other qualification which I can't remember what it is lol.
    Also, you'd be staying at home if you were at college, as they don't provide halls for you to live in.

    But in short, yeah, there's a massive difference between both. Take it from a guy who's experienced both!

    Ah ok. Yeah in the US University and College are interchangeable. Your college sounds a lot of our Trade Schools or Community College interesting to know how it works!

    *You hear music blasting through DJ's locker room, the camera man peeks through the door to see DJ sitting in a blue leather lazy boy recliner playing NBA 2k13 as the Knicks.*

    DJ: You have to be kidding me!? *a minutes passes* What the fuck was that J.R Smith, make the damn shot!.......

    Rosita: Damn babe you suck aha

    DJ: What the fuck, do you not see the score, it's 79-65 in the 3rd quarter, and besides, I don't suck, it's just that these niggas can't make a damn basket!

    Rosita: Ahaha calm your ass down, it's just a game.

    DJ: Ha, coming from the same person who threw the controller at the wall after I beat you.

    *Rosita gives DJ a dirty stare*

    DJ: Yea, it aint funny now is it hahaha

    Rosita: Fuck You!

    DJ: Aww, why you got to be like that

    *Rosita walks out slamming the door behind her*

    DJ: She will get over it.....Yes! Finally Carmello, you dunk the ball!

    Funny. The so called Bologna Process to unify European degrees should follow this model, (although I thought it was 3+2 years of master). In Spain we opted for a 4 years degree+ 1 of master. Moronic. Is this supposed to unify titles? The why using a different course duration?

    For you to know, my degree in English (with the old plan) was 5 years, no master. Then I failed completing the PHD (optative) for several reasons, and finally made a one year master (completed this October) in North American studies in a different Uni. The result? Unemployment, and barely any chance to find almost anything, besides door-to-door saleman or telemarketer. I'm appying to the car factory, like a vintage early XX century worker, as they will recruit new folks soon. Turning myself into a metalhead version of Chaplin in Modern Times.
