    Re: At university/a universty / universties

    In the US, we would use the "a" version. It doesn't matter which university you mean, or whether you don't have any specifc one in mind at all.

    You could also say "I'd like to be a college professor" with the same meaning.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
