    I have done my bachelors degree in computer technology. This was a 3 year course and had totally 40 courses. I wanted to do my masters so I got my degree evaluated through an agency. They awarded 2.5 credits for each course and my degree was evaluated to 100 credits.

    I am wondering how these credits are granted for each course?

    I had to take each course for 4-5 hours a week for one semester (6 months). There were also two labs for each semester.

    Can anybody throw some information on this? I wanted to enter into do a master degree with my bachelors , I would like to know if my bachelors degree would be equivalent to any US bachelors degree.

    What university issued your bachelors?

    Who evaluated your degree for credit?

    Where do you intend to get a masters from?

    Normally a US Bachelors=120 credits (Semester hours).

    In the US each Credit seems to mean about 15 hours of classroom time (plus individual reading and assignments outside of class), therefore a typical 3 credit class would equate to about 45 hours of time in class. Although, the number of hours varies by institution and major.

    Hope this helps,
