Understanding Overseas Qualifications


Although it is not a big market in terms of international students, the USA is a consistent market in terms of applicants.  Despite there being no issues with translations or working with documents not in English, the qualification documents - especially the transcripts - can be very difficult to read.  Added to this is the complexity of students completing parts of the qualification at multiple different institutions.

We will work through the complexities of this market by exploring these and other issues.  With a through understanding of the various types of institutions, the fluid credit system, and semester or quarter credits, any confusion will be cleared up.  The result will be that these will no longer be difficult qualifications to deal with. 

This seminar will cover the following comprehensively:

  • Illuminating information on the education system in general
  • Secondary school qualifications (high school diploma, GED and AP subjects)
  • Admission to higher education – SAT and ACT tests
  • Post-secondary qualifications
  • Types of higher education institutions
  • Undergraduate qualifications – types of Bachelor degrees, structure and characteristics
  • Graduate qualifications - types of Master degrees, structure and characteristics and Doctoral degrees
  • Accreditation
