What are the differences between university, institute, academy, college, conservatory, seminary and school?


Oxford / Cambridge University

The Royal Academy of Dance

Royal Conservatoire of Scotland

University College School (where Daniel Jones studied the English Phonetics)


Weinburg College of Arts and Sciences of Northwestern University

Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Harvard Business School

Westminster Theological Seminary


It is said that college may have different meanings in the UK and US.  In the UK, a college could refer to a middle school, while in the US, a college is usually a place where a student receives his or her university eduction.


Would you please join me to talk a bit more on this? Thanks!
