    Ongoing study? or Understudy?

    For example, if there is a project which is ongoing, you can probably say it as following.

    ;Project A (Ongoing)

    What if a study is under going? Can you say it as;

    ;Feasibility study on project A (Under study)

    Or should it be

    ;Feasibility study on project A (Ongoing study)

    Or simply

    ;Feasibility study on project A (Ongoing)

    Thank you in advance.

    Re: Ongoing study? or Understudy?

    Welcome to the forums, Shin.

    If Project A is the feasibility study, then just say "Feasiblity Study on A (ongoing)" or "Feasiblity Study (in progress)"

    Don't say "under study" for a study. It's redundant.

    It's underway or it's ongoing or it's in progress. It's not "under going."

    (And thanks for reporting the spam.)
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
