find out about the different types of diplomas in the world!
Each country has its own educational system, degrees
and levels of classification.
We can, however, separate the different systems into three categories:
undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate.
Worldstudent.com is based on the following criteria:
undergraduate = 2-3 years,
graduate = 4 years, and
postgraduate = 5-8 years.
This is the most commonly accepted system of academic
level measurement ; the exception is the United States and Canada,
who run by a slightly different classification system:
undergraduate = 4 years,
graduate = 5 years,
and postgraduate = 6-8 years.
The following chart will allow you to compare the
different Educational Systems .
This information will help you to compare your own degree to others
and also to evaluate the level of study you need to have in order
to enroll the program of your choice.
