The bachelor’s degree is an undergraduate university qualification which is recognised throughout Europe and in many countries worldwide. Bachelor, "Magister Atrium" (MA) and license degree ("Diplom") are referred to as "undergraduate studies".
Unlike a master's program, you do not need an academic degree to begin an undergraduate degree. Most of the time, you have to study for three to four years to obtain a bachelor's degree. During your studies, you will learn the basics of your subject-and after successful completion you will be handed a degree: In the humanities, you will earn a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.). In science subjects, you will earn a Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.). If you study engineering, your degree will be a Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.). Once you have been awarded a degree, you are qualified to enter the job market at a lower level. If you want to continue your studies, you can apply for a master’s degree.
