The most generic terms are primary ("elementary school" in the US), secondary ("high school" in the US), and tertiary ("college" in the US, usually meaning both undergraduate and graduate study.

BTW Ivan did you notice that Peter moved the meeting an hour earlier? You said that worked for you.

I am such an American! 

I think more universal terms for K12 are primary school and high school.

University (or college) students are also called undergraduate students, those studying for Bachelor's degree (yes, that's how it's spelled in America). In the US, more often a BA than a BsC.

Graduate Student is a catch-all term for everything after that,  Masters, PhD, MD, PsyD, etc. 
	
These categories are just suggestions.

Except that... "K12" is an Americanism. I had no idea wha that means until I began to talk to you guys...

That again may be unclear outside the US. Actually... I am not even 100% sure what it means. I am not a university person but I remember my son was talking about "Master student", "PhD student", or "BsC Student". What corresponds to what?
