    I'm going to graduate; I'm graduating on

    I'm going to graduate next year.
    I'm graduating on science stream at Oxford university.


    Please correct the above sentences.

    Also I understand the above sentences as :
    (1) I am going to start a degree course from the university next year.
    (2) Now I am studying for a degree on science stream at Oxford university.

    Please help me.

    Re: I'm going to graduate; I'm graduating on

    "stream" has no meaning in British universities, and until you have successfully taken final exams and been awarded a degree, you cannot graduate. Therefore you will say:

    I am studying for a science degree at Oxford.
    I hope to graduate with a good degree in Nuclear Physics from Oxford.

    Thank you Anglika.
    I am studying for a science degree at Oxford.
    I hope to graduate with a good degree in Nuclear Physics from Oxford.
    What you mean by "a good degree" in the second sentence?
