We have both college and university. University is (generally) the more abstract fields (physics, mathematics, English) whole college is more applied (trades, social work, nursing). There is quite a bit of crossover though so it gets a but muddled in areas.

In Canada, college is post secondary education, which is required for many fields. The problem is that some people are graduating with $20,000-50,000 debt, which takes many years to pay off. Young people have to chose whether the potential for a better job is worth mortgaging their future.

I am sorry if some people aren't English and so college may be different dependent on your location.

so in England college is simply used as a place where people have already chosen a career path and so they lower the amount of subjects to only 3 or 4 that they may need therefore increasing there knowledge in that area. which could be worthwhile If you then go and get a highly qualified job that allows you to earn more money than if you hadn't gone to college
