I've been wondering about the difference in difficulty between college and university English courses. Is college English significantly less challenging than an English course in university?

University suggests larger class sizes, like you'd find in a public school. College suggests smaller class sizes, like you'd tend to find in a smaller school. I've had experience at both, and it seems that the class size is the only difference. There is no evidence that one is easier than the other. In fact, in a college type setting, you have less room to hide in the crowd.

Overseas, a college is like a high school, while a university is, well a college level. That can cause confusion for international students who come to a college and aren't sure what that really means in America.

CeCe13 is correct. There should be no differences in the level of difficulty in the course work. Each institution is accredited and must follow certain guidelines for each course.
