If I start a sentence with the prepostion "at", Should I use a comma? For example:

At the university, if you have PhD degree, you are entitled to teach there. At home university, I didn't register in doctoral program.

Or, should I put it at the end of the sentence?


Prepositional phrases at the beginning of sentences are common and grammatically correct. So you may start your sentence with 'at'.

When you start a sentence with a prepositional phrase, it's usually a good idea to put a comma after it. In general, the longer the prepositional phrase, the more you need the comma.
