Default College Education For Imperial Citizens

Speculating about Imperial Higher Education...

What do the rules "say" about an Imperial Citizen getting a college education?

If you go by Book 1, then a lot of people don't get higher education after they are 18 years old.

Since you can have an EDU 12 or less at 18 years old or younger, then maybe lower education (what we call High School and Jr. High School) is much different for most Imperial citizens? Maybe the norm, even at a lower TL, is for a more intense education?

We can assume that education courses can be taken during a career, of course, even if using Basic Chargen. The Doctor career, in Sup 4, gets Medical-1 automatically during his first term. And, that skill could conceivably reach Medical-3 if rolls fall in favor of it. So, term 1 for a Doctor is 4 years of Medical School.

But...what happened to college?

This shows that it is possible for an 18 year old to go straight to medical school without going to college.

Telling us that things, education wise, are different for citizens of the Imperium. We can't base our Traveller paradigm on real world education.
