    Question Usage of Schooling

    Hi,

    I would like to know how does a native speaker describe that he attended St Pauls School. How will a native speaker desribe his edication (school, graduation, post graduation) while intoducing himself?

    Will this be right?

    I did my schooling from XYZ School. I did my graduation in biology from XYZ College. After which I did my psot graduation in life sciences from XYZ university.

    Please analyze the above statements, grammatically they might be right, however how would a native english speaker convey the same information?

    Thanks

    I did my undergraduate work at the University of Washington, earning a BS in Biology in 1994. Then I went on to UCLA to complete my PhD in Microbiology in 1999. After that, I did post-graduate work from (first year to last year) at Name of University in Whatever Field.

    Thanks,

    Does nobody use the word "schooling" for school education. Schooling is a noun, so I would belive it can be used, am I right?

    Re: Usage of Schooling

    'Schooling' can be used for the costs, but I mostly hear it used when talking about training in a skill or similar rather than school education. I wouldn't use the word in that way.

    Re: Usage of Schooling

    I wonder if perhaps these terms are used differently depending on your location. In the US we generally prefer to use the term education, especially when referring to academic work beyond the high school years.
