Differences between university
and community college


University is based on theory – for
example, you may study the different
theories of transmitting electricity and try to
discover a better one.
Community College courses are
practical in nature – for example, you will
learn how to manufacture an electrical wire,
how to install it and how to repair it.
Differences (continued)



Universities see themselves as creators of
new information. They are academic in
nature and resemble a continuation of high
school
Community colleges are career oriented
programs where you learn to apply the
knowledge gained.
Universities and colleges are offering more
and more joint and co-op programs.
Differences (continued)

factor for admission to certain faculties
