There can be some advantages to attending a university. Universities, of course, have graduate programs where colleges do not. Universities tend to be larger, offering a different campus experience (which may be a good or bad thing depending upon what you're looking for). By going to a university, though, you have chances to take graduate-level courses to get ahead if you're a bright student. If you plan to go to graduate school after college, a university may be a wise choice. You can develop a long-term relationship with a professor or professors which will help you a lot. I agree with the answer above, but there is one mistake. Come colleges do offer post-graduate programs. I am currently enrolled in broadcast journalism which is a three year advanced diploma (compressed into two years) and afterwards, I am attending a post-graduate broadcast journalism program (television). Univeristy is not better than college, but college is not better than university. It really depends on where you want to go in life. For example, in my situation, you are better off with college just because the career itself is about 95% hands-on, whereas if you wanted to become a laywer, you're better off with university (in fact, you must have a degree in order to become a lawyer where I live) since most of it is theory based.

A 'college' in Oxford is a division of the University, rather than being an institution one would attend prior to attending the University.They go hand in hand, not separately, so yes, you would have to be a member of an Oxford college (or Permanent Private Hall, which to all intents and purposes is the same as a college) to attend the University of Oxford. However, in applying to the University, you apply to a college, either of your choice or one allocated to you.

In modern higher education the distinction and use of college as opposed to university is a semantical term, rather than one based on objective naming criteria. In simplest terms the nomenclature of college or university is the choice of its leadership. By precedence a college was either a singular school of a discipline or distinct unit/faculty of a university. Thus a university was/is/can be comprised of individual colleges. That being said a school named a college can still have individual faculties/departments demonstrating the ambiguous nature of the term.

I am sorry, but I do not know enough about what Honda offers as far as an online university and programs they offer. If you are interested in a position as a Sales Manager, I would strongly suggest you investigate attending either a technical college, business college or State University or college in the are of Sales or business management. It would give you a much more diverse and broader education in many areas. I would also suggest that you investigate a degree in Auto Repair as well, rather than being just focused in sales in a major automobile repair company, that just limits yourself.
