Wolfman and lycanthrope - but that īs about it.

Werewolf is the most used word for that "creature".

this is a werewolf, half a man, half a wolf...
 
 
I think there īs no synonym for this word... just an explanation...

I tend to think that wolfman is a synonym. 
 
For your student:
 
Back a while ago there was a fellow called Wolfman Jack who appeared in American Graffiti (along with a very very very young Harrison Ford).  Wolfman Jack was not a werewolf, he just looked a bit like one. Wolfman Jack also had his own popular radio programme, the Top 40 I think.  Although American we had his programme here in Australia.
 
Some time later there was a flick about werewolves in London.  Also, there is a great classic rock song called the Werewolves of London (but I īm not sure if it was associated with that movie).
 
Cheers - Jayho

Well, there is also "lycan" ... from the movie "Underworld - Rise of the Lycans". I suspect that this is the word your student was looking for since the "Underworld" films are quite popular. I believe that this is the third part.
