    Undergraduate MA?

    Greetings,

    If my knowledge is correct, an undergraduate is a person who is in the last year of BA studies. And what about MA? If I want to indicate that person X is in the last year of MA studies, can I say an undergraduate MA?

    Re: Undergraduate MA?

    An undergraduate (at least in America) is anyone in college/university who has not yet earned a degree.

    Someone with a Bachelor's degree who is continuing on in their studies towards a Master's or PhD is a "graduate student."

    Isn't such a person referred to as a 'postgraduate' in the UK?
