University is where you study for a degree after completing your A Levels, BTECs, Diplomas, etc.

You can start university at any age after you turn 18.

A degree usually takes 3 years, but this can be longer or shorter depending on what you’re studying.

Unlike school, college and sixth form, it costs money to study at university, but there are loans and bursaries you can look into to help with the costs.
