I have made up the sentences below.

(1) Jack accomplished an advanced education. He doesn't know why I can't get a good job.

Is "accomplished" the right correct? Thank you.

  • Please use the "Edit" button to tell about the meaning you want. "Accomplished" is an okay word here, and there are other options. Mar 4 at 1:25
  • You usually 'accomplish' a task, particularly a difficult one, not something that you receive like an education. Mar 4 at 13:20

It would be more natural to say:

  • Jack has an advanced education
  • Jack got an advanced education
  • Jack acquired an advanced education
  • Jack obtained an advanced education
