ECA Results - Not sure
Hi All,

I have recieved my ECA results today. I am somewhat confused by it and if its a two or more or a bachelors degree. My full results are as follows:

[undefined=undefined]CANADIAN EQUIVALENCY SUMMARY
Two diplomas (two years) and bachelor's degree (four years)

CREDENTIAL ANALYSIS
1. Credential Authentication: Official transcripts were sent directly by the institution
Country: United Kingdom
Credential: Advanced Vocational Certificate of Education
Year: 2005
Awarded by: Edexcel Limited
Institution Status: Recognized
Major/Specialization: Information and Communication Technology
Canadian Equivalency: Diploma (two years)

2.Credential Authentication: Official transcripts were sent directly by the institution
Country: United Kingdom
Credential: Higher National Diploma
Year: 2007
Awarded by: Business and Technician Education Council
Institution Status: Recognized
Major/Specialization: Computing
Canadian Equivalency: Diploma (two years)

3. Credential Authentication: Official transcripts were sent directly by the institution
Country: United Kingdom
Credential: Bachelor of Science
Year: 2008
Awarded by: University of the West of England, Bristol
Institution Status: Recognized
Major/Specialization: Information Technology
Canadian Equivalency: Bachelor's degree (four years)[/undefined]

Looking at the above summary, most people would think i could select 2 or more right? however my 3 year degree (4 year in Canada) was done in 2 separate places, first 2 then final year else where (this relates to point 2 and 3). So does this count as a 3 year program? plus my other diploma?

any ideas or views would be much appreciated!

Cheers

RE: ECA Results - Not sure
It looks to me like you have two similar diplomas and a four year degree - like you had an AA degree here ("associates") and then a BA here ("bachelor"). Much like if you had an MA or MS ("masters") it doesn't obviate the others - but usually it is the highest degree that is most important.

It doesn't matter where the degree was done (e.g., here you might go to Vancouver Community College and then transfer to BCIT) only what was ultimately granted. Transfer credits are quite common.

FSW: App 6/09, reject 12/11, JR leave 7/12, discontinued 9/12
Spousal: App 3/12, sponsor approval 6/12, PPR 9/12. Landed 13 October 2012.
