Difference Between Undergraduate and Post-Graduate/Graduate.

To clear the air about this little confusion that goes on in the minds of new students or applicants, let's give a brief distinction between the two terms. First let us talk about undergraduate. Undergraduate programmes literally means programmes or courses that are first learnt by a student before they complete university. So therefore undergraduate programmes are awarded with Bachelor's Degree at the end of the duration.

Post-Graduate or Graduate programmes are those that one may applied after gaining a Bachelor's degree. In this case the person had completed an undergraduate programme earlier, people applied for these programmes for a higher educational certificate be it Masters degree, Doctors degree among others.
