Description of terms 

There are different names for the types of qualification you can achieve at university, depending on the subject area and the degree which means the level of study.  

When you first begin university you are called an ‘undergraduate’ studying a Bachelor’s degree. After this, you become a ‘postgraduate’ and move onto studying a Master’s degree. Once you have finished this you can study a PhD and become a doctor of your subject!
