Back in 2016, I started on the Oxford Adv Diploma in IT because it was funded by my company. It was a 1 year program (online). After which, I used that diploma to apply into Derby's 1 year top up in IT program. I was surprised that I got accepted, cause I only used the oxford diploma for application. I didn't have 240 cats points for entry. So I spent the next 2-3 years knocking out module by module for Derby until I finished the whole thing back in 2019, and I just left it there. Recently I was thinking about applying into a Masters program (a UK program!) but I thought what the heck, why not send it to WES and see what they make of it, maybe I'll have more options if something good came back. So it came back few days ago. WES says its equivalent to a US bachelor's degree! Hooray ? but but but... here's the crux which I'm still trying to get my head round It says I only have 62 UG credits. (Note that 62 UG is counting what I have from Oxford as well. So Derby in itself is only 42 credits. Even if you did an AA/AS prior, you'd only have 102 credits tops) So I'm not sure if a graduate program in the US will accept this (please dont quote me), but I'm gonna try to make an application into G Tech's 10k CS program, FHSU's MPS Web Dev program, and maybe find 1 more 10k CS/Info Sys program to apply into, and I'll update here how it goes. For anyone who's interested to do the UK 1 year top-up program and is looking towards US grad schools, you might wanna reconsider. I'm not saying it's bad or what not, I'll update my own experience applying into a graduate program using whatever WES has. side note: I do have a first bach. degree in a different field. I just thought of doing this as an experiment and for future students around the world who might want an IT degree.
