In the US, most students attend college/university for 4 years. After 4 years of classes, they recieve a bachelor's degree. A bachelor's degree is what most people consider to be "standard" for college degrees. After recieving a bachelor's, a student can continue into grad school, where they can achieve a masters degree, and then a PhD. Graduate school tends to be less focused on classes, and more focused on specific projects or research.
Additionally, there are some 2 year programs where a student can get an Associate's Degree. Associate degrees are usually for specific hands-on jobs. In other words, it usually the degree a student can get hired for a tech job (involving computers or electronics) without needing to go to 4 years of schooling.

4 years-Bachelor's degree
6 years-Master's degree
How high of a degree you want depends on what you're specializing in. If I'm a business major, Bachelor's will probably be fine, though of course more is always better. But something like Psychology or Art history (heh) you need at the bare minimum a Master's Degree, but a PhD is to be expected.
You don't get a diploma each year. Your grades are on a 4 point scale.

Well in the USA it works like so. Two years of college will get you a associated dagree I'm the subject. For something this is ok like social workers or other fields.
Then there is a degree for 4 years which is called a bachelor in a subject. You take most all subjects such as English Math History but also things related to your major. This is pretty common for most jobs in the business,engineering field.
After completing your bachelor you have the option of getting your masters after studying for 2 years with mostly focusing on your major subject.
After your masters you can go for a PhD which can take from 2 to 4 years of study.

universities are where people go for 4-8 years. usually they offer things like arts programs, but also offer medicine, law, science, math, computer science, etc.
college is where people go for 6 months to 2 years. colleges offer trades like welding, carpentry, plumbing, or entry courses to things like business, arts, computer science, etc.
Generally speaking, colleges are easier to get into, but offer more promise for jobs. They usually cost much less, but the programs they offer are in high demand and they routinely have a very high employment rate for students right after school. My local college has a 94% employment rate .
Universities are usually harding to get into, or require better grades. The courses go more in depth, and look better on resumes. However, universities dont offer courses based on whats in demand. They do offer more academic based programs, though.
University required fields are usually biased about what university you went to when applying for a job. Certain universities are more prestigious than others. Whereas college tier programs dont really care about what college you went to, as long as you have the diploma and can do the required trade or profession.

Park: The engine is disconnected from the transmission. You can rev all you want, no power is going to the wheels. Also, the parking brake is on, so your car will not roll away.
Reverse is reverse, nuff said.
In neutral, the engine is disconnected from the transmission, but the parking brake is not on. The car will roll freely. This is helpful for if the car needs to be pushed or towed.
In a lot of cars, the next position will be marked with an OD or a D superimposed over an O. This is the normal driving position, overdrive. Overdrive indicates that there's a secondary gear after the normal gearbox, that makes all the gears higher, for better gas mileage. Then, by either shifting down into D or pushing an Overdrive Off button, the overdrive gear is disengaged, for lower gas mileage and speed, but higher power. Good for towing.
Low restricts the car to the lowest gear, which causes the engine to help brake the car on a downslope. This is good because your actual brakes, from the brake pedal, can overheat if used too much, and fail. Low is also a good position to be in if you are trying to tow something heavy uphill, because it will keep the transmission from shifting into a higher gear that doesn't have enough power to get the job done.

In park, a locking mechanism typically located inside the transmission locks a "pawl" against a very heavy gear machined into the transmission output shaft assembly.
Neutral releases all of the gear sets inside the transmission, allowing the input and output shafts to turn independently of each other. How it works is based on how the gear sets of a certain transmission are designed to work. As for why there's a neutral option, it's to allow the vehicle drive-train and wheels to move independently from the engine and transmission to allow for emergency maneuvering (IE, towing).
"Drive" is just a standardized terminology, and it uses a letter distinctive from the other settings. PRNDL was a standard adopted in the 1960's, after multiple vehicle manufacturers ended up causing driver-error accidents to increase when they used different letters or gear shift selector patterns. "Drive" was selected for the vehicle-forward directed mode of operation.
As for "low", it's a setting that forces the transmission into a lower set of gears, often terminating with second or third gear. This is used to limit the amount of power placed at the wheels, making it easier for a driver who needs the vehicle to be used for a low-speed/engine-braking application, such as towing or descending a mountain road.

In park the car is parked
In Neutral the car is standing still but you can push and tow it.
Drive is just driving, it shifts gears on its own.
Low is probably 2 or 1. When in 2 or low the car wont shift to a higher gear. Its used when driving down hill, not sure how it works because we dont have hills or mountains where im from.

But, why not just park it in neutral and pull the handbrake?
Or is there no handbrake and the mechanical brake activates once the gear stick is put in park?

In low gear, the engine remains coupled to the drive shaft and rotates a greater number of times with respect to how many times the wheels rotate. When going down a mountain, this gear allows a vehicle to turn off its engine and use the engine's "drag" to slow the rotation of the wheels on the downhill slope.
