English term or phrase: College course level names
freshman, sophomore,junior,senior,master
Lucien Marcelet
German translation:Not translated
Explanation:
These terms are not translated, Muret-Sanders lists "Student im 1. Semester" for freshman which is not quite correct as "freshman" describes the entire first year at a 4-year university.

A search in German websites on "freshman" or "sophomore" +Universität will show you that these terms are universally left untranslated.

Freshman - 1. Studienjahr
Sophomre - 2. Studienjahr
Junior - 3. Studienjahr
Senior - 4. Studienjahr

Danach kommt "graduate studies" mit Abschluss als "Masters" oder, weiterführend, als Doktor (Ph.D.)
