    Uk-naric

    Hi everyone

    Just want to find out if anyone knows if UK-NARIC is evaluating DEAC degrees yet? TO be honest I do not understand why they will not accept DEAC schools. Heck, even the fraud school UNEM is on the UK-NARIC list. Even in South Africa you have small colleges and schools that is so far behind the DEAC universities, but yet they are listed and approved by UK-NARIC.

    Has anyone ever actually reached out and asked them what the reason is for this position?

    NARIK UK will nmot evaluate US NA degrees.
    They only evaluate US RA degrees as comparable to British Degrees.
    I seen the letter that my friend got DETC then accredited Bachelors degree, they simply provided official letter and a statement that There are many different types of accreditation in USA they accept for evaluation only degrees accredited by 6 US RA agencies.

    Thais was in 2010.

    Yes, my friend challenged and asked for re evaluation of his DETC accredited dBAchelors the reply was that NARIC UK only evaluates US RA accredited degrees as equal to UK degrees.

    I don't mean approach them as a student who needs them as an evaluation and simply be told no, I mean approach them as a colleague to find out their reasoning.

    Although UK-NARIC won't evaluate DEAC or other American NA degrees, there is still plenty of hope, if you want to use such a degree to enter further study at a UK Uni. The individual schools are not bound to any admission policy by UK-NARIC's refusal to evaluate NA degrees. Schools can have their own criteria. They can and do admit applicants with US NA degrees. Many schools are able to look at the whole picture, including NA degrees and make a decision accordingly, if the prospective student appears to have what it takes to succeed in his/her desired program
