If someone studies in some other country is it correct to say:

1) 'I though you studied in Dubai.' 

2) 'I study in Canada.'

Yes, Arashful, those sentences can be said in that context, provided "though" is changed to "thought," which is surely what you meant to type.

Does study here mean that he is in a college/university in that country?

That interpretation is likely, but it not the only one available. Perhaps the person is a private scholar or, alternatively, someone who studies only in Dubai/Canada (i.e., not anywhere else). The person could also be studying there in primary or secondary school. If you want your sentence to indicate unambiguously that the person is studying in a college/university, you can say what you mean:

  • I thought you were doing your college studies in Dubai.
  • I'm studying at a university in Canada.

Thank you very much.
