UK to US Education Qualifications

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello!

It's been awhile since I've posted here... I didn't know where else to turn, so when in doubt...

My husband (now a US citizen) is interested in going back to Uni here in New York. He was instructed by the SUNY school he's interested in to use a qualification translation service called World Education Services (WES) to prove he has the equivalent of a Regents Diploma (or at least a GED?). He said that this World Education Services has been pretty unhelpful and and difficult to work with.

Does anyone here have any experience with translating their UK education qualifications to US?

I apologize if there is an existing thread on this- it's getting late and I'm beat.

Many thanks!

WES is common for Uni's, what UK qualifications does he have, A Levels should be good enough.

He has: 8 Standard Grades, 3 SCE A level equivalent highers that he earned at college in the UK and some HNC credits. The WES online form only allows him to enter a maximum of five or so qualifications. We were told at the college that we should have everything translated as it may count towards college credit. Also: is WES the best option, or is there another organization we should look at?

Uni decides who they recognise so you have to ask them if they use other than WES.

GCE

I would imagine he would get credits as that is definitely well above GED etc.
