What is college? After school, many people decide to continue their learning at a college. In some ways, college is similar to school – you’ll choose a subject you’re interested in, learn about it in classes, and produce work of your own. However, at college you’ll focus on one subject, learning the skills and the knowledge you’ll need to pursue a specific career. For a lot of jobs, a college qualification is all you need to get started. For others though, you’ll need a university degree. Universities are a lot like colleges but they offer subjects at a higher level. You can read about them here. The good news is that college is an excellent stepping stone to university. With a college qualification in the bag, a lot of universities will let you jump ahead into the second or third year of a university course. Loads of people take this route every year.
