Undergraduate and Bachelors degree refer to the same degree and can be used together or separately, depending upon what you are talking about – the person or the degree. An undergraduate or undergrad as is commonly known is a person studying for a bachelor’s degree. Getting a bachelor’s degree is the ticket to a more promising career and is the minimum requirement for entry into any professional career. In most cases, you cannot attend a professional graduate school in law, medicine, or teaching education unless you hold a bachelor’s degree. Which means you will need a bachelor’s degree before enrolling in any master’s program.
A bachelor’s degree can be acquired after 3-4 years of education, depending upon which country you are studying in. For example, countries like USA, Canada, Australia, India, New Zealand take 4 years to complete the degree and UK, Germany, Sweden, Netherlands (Europe) take 3 years for the same. On completing this term, you will score 180 or 210 or 240 semester credits i.e. European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) credit points.
