UNDERGRADUATE / GRADUATE STUDENT   
学部生/大学院生

Explanation

  • An undergraduate is a college or university student who is earning a bachelor's degree (= BA, BS, etc.).

    A graduate STUDENT is a university student who is earning an advanced degree.

    The words undergraduate and graduate are often used before nouns in expressions such as “undergraduate education”, “graduate school”, and “graduate studies”.

    Be Careful! We do NOT use the word “graduate” alone to mean graduate student.
  • undergraduate とは、大学で学士号(文学士(BA)、理学士(BS)など)を取得しようとしている学生、つまり、学部生のことです。

    graduate STUDENT は、大学で上級学位を取得しようとしている学生、つまり、大学院生のことです。

    undergraduategraduate は、undergraduate education (学部教育)、graduate school (大学院)、graduate studies (大学院での研究)などのように、後ろに名詞を伴って使うことがよくあります。

    注意: graduate student の意味で、graduate という単語を単独で用いることはありません。
