    If you have completed the degree in 2012:

    BSc (Hons) in Applied Accounting
    2008-2011
    Oxford Brookes University, Oxford, England

    And mention this in a smaller font/italics/brackets:

    Via ACCA Office, Wheatley Campus, Oxford Brookes University Business School, Oxford

    employer don’t bother how and when degree was acquired. They are interested in what you can do for them.

    So why build a cv at all. Or even write exams. Lets just study from books and claim we know it and prove it by demonstrating everything we know.

    what I mean to say is why write so much as via acca office, wheatley campus, obu biz school, oxford. Why you want to disclose that this is thesis based only and not regular university degree. Tell your employer when he asks, other wise why disclose every thing. OBU says its equivalent to regular degree so feel confident and assume its regular degree.

    We haven’t technically attended college. It is better not to lead the employer into believing that we have. Point is to mention it without screaming out loud. Mentioning that is like a disclaimer.

    No one has ever noticed that on my cv or questioned me about it. They notice the “bsc (hons)” “oxford brookes” “wheatley campus” and skip to the next qualification. I put it on my cv at size 8 in italics (the font I use for addresses of previous employers).

    I do my part. Not my problem if the employer doesn’t notice it ;)
