postgraduate


This can also be spelled 'post-graduate'. In English, the words 'postgraduate' and 'graduate' are synonyms. Some institutions are using the term 'postgraduate' to refer to post-initiële master's and the term 'graduate' to refer to initiële master's. Nuffic advises against this, for the reasons given in the entry for 'graduate'.
