What is university?

University is a place where you come to study a course or subject that you choose. When you get to the age of 18 you can decide to go to university, but you can go at any age so you can wait until you are older if you want to. You can even go when you are 100 years old! Most students decide to go to university to help them get a better job after they finish. Other students go because they want to make new friends, live in a different city, or learn more about a subject they enjoy at school or sixth form/college. The university is like a big school, but instead of having classrooms for each lesson, there are whole buildings for each subject! The buildings that make up a university are called the campus.
