Hi,

I came across this sentence and I wanted to ask you if it's correct.

"The programme is intended for students of the second year and higher year of study of the bachelor's programme."

It sounds a bit wordy to me and a native speaker once told me that I shouldn't say 'student of ... year'.

I'd probably say 'students who are in their second or higher year of study of the bachelor's programme'.

What do you think?

I agree with you that it doesn't sound good. I would use "in their second year or higher", and I would also avoid using "programme" twice in that sentence. For example:

The course is intended for students in their second year or higher in the bachelor's programme.

Thank you so much. Does it mean that ‘students who are in their second or higher year of the bachelor’s programme’ is wrong? Should I replace ‘of’ with ‘in’?

Either preposition is okay.
