How U.S. Universities Evaluate Your 3-year Indian Bachelor’s Degree

Do you have a three-year Indian degree? 

Most bachelor degree programs in the U.S. are four-year programs. Therefore, many U.S. universities may feel hesitant about accepting a bachelor’s degree with only three years of study. Traditionally, a three-year bachelor’s degree from India has been viewed in the U.S. as comparable to the completion of three years of undergraduate study, and therefore students have generally not been eligible for admission to U.S. graduate schools unless extra credits are taken. This may be frustrating for students and we’ll explain how you can go about properly evaluating your hard earned degree below.

[STUDENT AMBASSADOR] Megha Mirchandani - Why Studying in the U.S. is a Great Option

In India, students memorize concepts and exam questions expect a standard answer. In the U.K. one was required to conduct an intense amount of independent research that helps you to understand concepts and their context. However, the U.S. offers students a collaborative environment to learn and study. The courses have an interactive methodology in teaching you tough concepts. Personally, the U.S. has allowed me to leverage and build other skills in an interactive learning environment.

[STUDENT AMBASSADOR] Khadija Moulahid – Being a Female International Engineering Student in Canada

WES Student Advisor: Canada is a long way from home in Morocco. Can you share with us why you decided to study abroad in Canada?

In my last year of high school I had to choose a destination for my post-secondary studies. Growing up in Morocco, where French is the second official language, and studying in a French school, I decided to pursue my studies at least for the first few years in French. So I decided to list all the French speaking countries that were interesting to me, and Canada being a bilingual country was immediately one of my first choices. I was too familiar with the French system and wanted to experience something new. Studying in Canada was also the opportunity for me to improve my fluency in English as I further my studies.
