In both the U.S. and Canada, an Associates Degree is equivalent to the first two years of a four year college or university degree. A Certificate, which is a lesser degree than an Associates, is awarded for specific studies that may be completed in one year or less.
In the UK, there is no direct equivalence to an Associates Degree. Depending on the school and program, A Levels may count towards an Associates Degree. Diplomadesk will assess the applicant’s academic credentials according to the specific school requirements, A Levels studied and grades received by the applicant. In Britain, the foundation degree and the Business and Technology Education Council's Higher National Diploma may be equivalent. In France, the two-year General Academic Studies Degree may be equivalent. The Further Education and Training Awards Council's Advanced Certificate and Higher Education and Training Awards Council's Higher National Certificate in the Republic of Ireland may also be equivalent to the Associates Degree.
In India, students may study four years specializing in Engineering, Technology and Library Science. However, these areas count as four year Bachelor’s Degrees.
