    I am from the UK and there we start Uni when we are 18. We start college or sixth form (it's like college in school) when we are 16, but I know that Americans start college when they are 18 and that confuses me. So what age do Americans start university?

    I'm not entirely sure since I'm in the UK as well, but their college is very different to ours. They tend to live at college, and they have to pay fees. In many ways it's similar to university.
