I know -- shocking, right?!

Deborah commented on Cross-Border Degree Recognition

Great question, Kate. I do know that degrees from Asian and African countries and countries from the former Soviet Socialist Republics are less likely to be recognized in the US than degrees from Canada; but as a personal anecdote I can also say that my husband's MPhil or Master's degree from King's College, London, UK was not recognized in the US when he applied for doctoral programs here; and he had to redo his Master's degree in the US to be able to qualify for entry into a doctoral program. Personally, as well, I have known and had as students many people from countries like China, Mongolia, Iran, Ukraine, the Czech Republic, Russia, and others who graduated with Bachelor's, Master's, and doctoral degrees from those countries and had to completely redo coursework and degree qualifications to be eligible for employment in their fields in the US.
