studieren vs lernen

Obviously, I was thinking them to be synonymous enough although we tend to learn at schools first and then to study in the unis as students and labs as scientists , but that wasn't accepted. So, what's the critical difference? Is there any in German beyond that between to learn and to study in English? I think "studieren" is more intense than "lernen". We learn daily, but we study at the university for example. Please see my comment here on the difference. Because of the sentences above: without any context both versions could be accepted. But it is not that easy at all In German we never use "studieren" for children, which go to school.
In German, the verb lernen is used to talk about these learning activities. The German verb studieren has a more limited meaning than its English cognate. The distinction between the two words also reflects a cultural difference.
