Are you in or at university?
The correct preposition is at! For example, you would say: “I’m studying at Harvard University.” Other correct examples using this preposition include: I’m studying for a PhD at the university.
Why do we say at university?
So, although the letter is a vowel, it is not pronounced like one in ‘university’ because it does not have a vowel sound. We therefore say ‘a university’. The U in umbrella is pronounced as a vowel sound ( Λ using the phonetic alphabet) and so we use ‘an’.
Can we use at for university?
There will be many contexts in which you can say either “ at the university ” or “in the university” and either will be correct. You’ll tend to use “at” where you want to emphasize physical, geographic location; you’ll tend to use “in” with reference to the university as an organization.
Is it studying in or studying at?
Use at when you’re talking about a college/university as an institution. Use in if you’re talking about it as a building. I studied Philology at Oxford University. Is he in the university? ~ No, he’s outside on the lawn.
Do you live in or at?
If a specific house has a name (think Bronte sisters) then you might live AT the house (I lived at Greyoaks all my life) but if it’s not a single family dwelling (say it’s a hotel, or an apartment building) then it’s IN. You also live IN a town, or a named area of town like Nob Hill, and AT an intersection.
Is it an year or a year?
The word year when pronounced starts with a phonetic sound of e which is a vowel sound making it eligible for being preceded by an. Yet, we tend to write a year.
Should I put the in front of university?
The general practice seems to be this: if the name of the university comes before the word “university,” don’t use “the”: Oxford University, Columbia University, Simon Fraser University. If the name follows “university of,” it will usually need “the”: He attended the University of Southern California. He attended USC.
When to put an or a?
If the first letter makes a vowel-type sound, you use “an”; if the first letter would make a consonant-type sound, you use “a.” However, even if you follow these basic rules when deciding to use “a” or “an,” remember that there are some exceptions to these rules. “A” goes before words that begin with consonants.
Is it an hour or a hour?
For those words that are written with the first letter as a consonant, but which are pronounced with the first letter as a vowel, such as “hour” and “herb,” the correct way to present them in a written document (e.g. your scientific manuscript written in American English) is: “ An hour ” and “An herb.”
Do we say at school or in school?
We actually use both in school and at school, for slightly different situations. At school means the person is literally, physically, inside the school.
