    Hallo! What's the difference between degree course and higher degree course?
    Is it like italian "laurea di primo e secondo livello"?
    Thank you!

    In AE a "degree course" is most likely the "laurea" that we would call "college degree" "bachelors" - usually the "four year" degree.

    Often "higher degree" means "Masters" and "Ph.D."
