What's the difference between an undergraduate and a graduate student?

An undergraduate is a degree-seeking student in the first stage of tertiary education. Undergraduate is an adjective that describes someone who's in college but not a graduate student yet. Undergraduate students are typically those working to earn a bachelor's degree.

A college or university is an institution where you can study for advanced qualifications, such as degrees or doctorates. A degree is a qualification that shows you've completed the courses and exams required for a particular level of study.

Tertiary education is the education that takes place after a person has finished high school. It includes undergraduate and graduate study (and sometimes postgraduate study).

A graduate student is someone who studies at a university or college and has already earned an undergraduate degree.
