Australian Degree Recognition
Qualifications from Australian universities are recognised worldwide, and respected for their academic excellence.
The three-year bachelor's degree is recognised for graduate entry at many US and Canadian institutions, however, some will require a four-year degree or additional qualifications. You will need to check with the North American institutions you are applying to for their graduate admissions requirements.
Graduate schools and some employers may also require a US or Canadian “equivalent” degree. In these cases, you will need to have your Australian credentials evaluated for equivalency. Companies such as World Education Services can assess your credentials for a fee.
If you have completed a professional qualification such as law or medicine, you will need to register with the relevant professional body in order to practice in the US or Canada. See the professional degree section for further details.
