how can I express properly what I study and in which year I actually am?

is the following correct:

I'am studying a bachelor in computer sciences, I'am in my third year.

I also tried to translate what would I say in french, but it sounded silly to me :/.

Thank you.

    It's not I'am but rather I'm or I am. – user77261 Sep 16 '14 at 13:39

    Note also that terminology may differ from place to place. In some U.S. institutions, you would conventionally be called be a junior, at others a third-year student or simply a third-year; at the military academies you would be a second-class cadet/midshipman. The shortest way to express it might be I am a third-year undergraduate in computer science. – choster Sep 16 '14 at 13:48

You'd say "I'm in my third year of studies towards a bachelor's in Computer Sciences" or something similar. Note that it is a "bachelor's (degree)," not just "a bachelor." Your phrase instead means you have your eye on an unmarried man in CS.

  • Can I say: "I am studying in BA."? – Kumar sadhu Jun 25 at 13:10
  • @Kumarsadhu No, that is not idiomatic in English. You could say "I am pursuing a BA, " or "I am in a BA program." – Chris Sunami Jun 25 at 13:20
  • Is "I am studying for a BA" fine? – Kumar sadhu Jun 25 at 13:23

A few examples

I am a third year student of bachelor of science in computer science. (If the broad category is kept)

I am a third year student of bachelor in computer science. (If the broad category is omitted)

I am studying in third year of my bachelor's degree (in computer science).


I am 3rd year student taking up Bachelor of Science in Computer Science.

I'm 3rd year,and I'm studying COMPSCI.
