    Thanks Perfect! It seems quite low for a role that is equivalent to a Country Manager with responsibility for all aspects of the college and its operations, including P & L, recruitment etc. for a regional private education provider..?

    Daz, what are your qualifications? It seems strange you would be asking questions on a TEFL oriented board. 99% of these positions are never advertised and are filled either by newsletter or word of mouth.

    Quandry, I am a business/operations/marketing specialist with a Bsc Hons experienced in Asia and saw the ad on a general job website. As I am new to the industry I posed the question!

    A college here is less than a university, it is Wittialy, once you become a university you have mahawittialy. That may be one reason for the lower salary. Excuse my phonetic spelling of the two. Often it would refer to a vocational institute rather than a full degree course. From a college here you dont graduate with a BA or BS.

    good point. colleges are more limited in scope everywhere else, too, but tend to award BAs and BS (plenty of BS actually). one might trot in here and expect to see the same thing, but it ain't. it's as AO says and 'college' refers to a vocational school.

    question for AO: how much are 'colleges' here like 'junior colleges' in the US (vocational 2 year schools)?

    In America colleges are more limited in the sense that they normally don't have extensive graduate level (MA/PhD) programs. Otherwise, colleges and universities are pretty much equal in America.

    I'm not sure if you meant to include America in your "everywhere else".

    mostly talking about the US (and systems patterned after it). a university is supposed to cover all branches of learning. some colleges do offer MA/MFA/PhD programs but only within a narrow range of subjects. many Universities are divided into colleges rather than schools.

    IME a college can be a lot of things in America, but a university (at least the ones i've dealt with) tends to be similar in scope to all the other universities. in every day speech though we Americans call all of it "college" and it confuses Thais when you do that over here.

    In America colleges and universities are pretty much equivalent at the undergraduate level. Many colleges are much more prestigious than many universities. A number of colleges are on a par with the elite universities for their undergraduate programs. I'm not sure where the idea that American colleges are in any way inferior, for undergraduate programs, to American universities came from. That appears to be the situation in many countries but it most certainly not the case in America.

    not sure where *you* got the idea that American colleges tend to be perceived as inferior to universities from, but it wasn't said (or implied) in my post. or are you referring to a general perception? it's certainly true, however, that in Thailand colleges are perceived as trade schools and universities, academia.

    The distinction between colleges and universities has been made a number of times before, equating the American system with that found in other countries. Your comment about limited scope made me think, for a moment, that you may have shared such a view. Glad you don't and we are in agreement about there being no distinction, at the undergraduate level, between colleges and universities in America.
