Undergraduate? PostGraduate? Confused.

Am I the only one that doesn't know what the difference between an undergraduate and a postgraduate is? Could someone please explain the difference. I'm confused as to which one I should be applying for in the course I want to do. I would like to start University next year.

And also, what is a prospectus?

Thanks to those who answers these questions :)

    when you complete a degree you become a graduate.

    Before you complete a degree you are an undergraduate.

    If you go on to education after a degree you are a post graduate.

    A prospectus is "a formal statement giving details of a forthcoming event" - for a university it's a description of the courses they will be running

    Undergraduate PostGraduate Confuse

    Care for those who already hold degrees,these are normally ordinary or honor degrees and entry is normally based on achieving of these degrees.Undergraduate courses are for those who do not hold any degrees at the time of entry.It is normally based on A Level or SQA Higher grades In the UK entry courses of Postgraduate.
