    It won't take long until I graduate

    I would think the sentence 'It won't take long until I graduate' is good English though before is more commonly used. Am I right?

    "It won't be ​long until I graduate" is absolutely fine. So is "It won't be long before I graduate".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    You could say "It won't take long for me to graduate".
