I'm applying to abroad universities and I'm having some doubts on how to refer to myself.

I'm studying Business Administration (bachelor level). What of the following options sound better?

"I'm a business bachelor student"
"I'm a business administration student"
"I'm a bachelor in business student"
"I'm a bachelor of business student"

Actually, I don't like how any of those sounds... could you please correct me or recommend better ways?

Thanks very much in advance!

    I think "business administration student" is the best of the choices you offered. Another option would be "undergraduate, studying business administration". – user888379 Aug 24 '17 at 17:46

    'Abroad' is not used prenominally. – Edwin Ashworth Aug 24 '17 at 18:48
  • An undergraduate isn't a bachelor. A bachelor is "one who has taken the first or lowest degree at a university, who is not yet a master of the Arts" (OED). You don't become a bachelor until you complete your bachelor's degree. Still, even if you had completed the degree, you wouldn't say "I'm a bachelor". It would be too open to misinterpretation. – rjpond Aug 24 '17 at 19:07

I would say

I'm a business major


I'm majoring in Business Administration

    It depends on where OP is applying. – Edwin Ashworth Aug 24 '17 at 18:48
