College (Latin: ''collegium'') is an educational institution or a constituent part of one. Usage of the word ''college'' varies in English-speaking nations. A college may be a degree-awarding tertiary educational institution, a part of a collegiate university, or an institution offering vocational education.
In the United States and Italy, "college" formally refers to a constituent part of a university, but generally "college" and "university" are used interchangeably,〔(college noun (EDUCATION) - definition in British English Dictionary & Thesaurus - Cambridge Dictionary Online )〕 whereas in Oceania and South Asia, "college" may refer to a secondary or high school, a college of further education, a training institution that awards trade qualifications, or a constituent part of a university (See this comparison of British and American English educational terminology for further information).
In ancient Rome a ''collegium'' was a club or society, a group of people living together under a common set of rules (''con-'' = "together" + ''leg-'' = "law" or ''lego'' = "I choose" or "I read").
