Sir,
Another query about in/at.
Which of the following expressions is more idiomatic/grammatical?
1. He works as a professor of English at XX college.
2. He works as a professor of English in XX college.

Pl. explain.
Thanks in advance.

In British English 'at' would be used, although American speakers might use 'in'. Overall, 'at' is more likely to be acceptable.
