    Re: What school do you study at?

    Where do you go to school? Where do you go to college?

    (Remember that in the U.S., we use "school" to include university level too. Just the other day I said "I went to school in Troy, so I know Schenectady quite well" and the person knew I mean college.) (Those are both towns near Albany, NY.)
    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.

    Re: What school do you study at?

    "go to" is also natural in AmE.

    For example:

    "I go to Bentonville High School."
    "I go to the University of Colorado."
    "I go to UC Davis."
    "I go to Harvard."
