    (1) is correct and (2) is almost correct, though their meanings are distinct:

    1-I am studying at university (you're not studying at any other type of institution)

    2-I am studying at the University (refers to a specific university)

    Though, it's probably worth saying that they both seem to me to be chiefly British English.

    Hi,

    Yo optaría por "I'm/I am studying at college/at a university"

    I hope this helps

    thank you!!i think any of the options are wrong, i consider there are differences between british and american english.I am studying british english, so i consider i am studying at university is correct considering your opinions.

    Yes, I totally agree with you. But, I hope you don't mind these corrections (though you probably already know them).

    Anyway, good luck with your studies! It seems that you're already pretty far along.
