Can someone please tell me how well recognised the OBU degree is ?
I mean if a person can obtain this degree by only completeing F7,8 and 9 and the RAP…how cant this be equivalent to a standard 3 yr degree ?
Please adviceNovember 12, 2012 at 10:54 pm
as far as i know i spoke to some universities in the US accredited under AACSB. they told that under some bologna accord (damn care) many of the US universities and colleges are now accepting 3 year bachelors (UK) as being equivalent to a 4 years US bachelors.
being that said you can get admission in a masters program i.e MBA, MSAC etc.
the only issue is that US universities enjoy great autonomy and are not just bound to accept foreign credential evaluators i.e. even if they require a foreign credential evaluator, they hold the right to reject your degree regardless of it being approved by them.
another issue is correspondence education. i think that is that OBU BSc actually is. but it depends upon the university you are applying. they may accept it. the only way to know is when u actually apply.
all this being told is for the reason that one cant enter CPA on OBU BSc but can in a masters program, and then can apply for CPA based on the 150 credit hours needed by US.
coming to OBU BSc degree credit hours. F1-F3 are 35 credits each and the rest are all 40 credits each. RAP is 15 credits making a total of 360 credits. but this system only works in UK and not elsewhere as they hold different rating systems.November 14, 2012 at 4:52 pm
@shtuamouth..what about the acca qualification and not the OBU BSc for entry into the CPA program ? can we do the CPA exam with the ACCA qualification…the entire ACCA qualification is worth 560 credits..assuming the professional level gets 40 credits for each unit ?December 13, 2017 at 9:57 pm
Has anyone tried getting their OBU degree evaluated in USA for masters degree? If yes, which service have you guys used and were you successful? Was it equivalent to a 4 year USA Bachelors degree?January 30, 2018 at 10:39 pm
