Hey guys, I was wondering about this after chatting with a friend who has finished his masters. I was looking for possibilities in using my work experience - 10 years this past january - to get into a university, and save off some time, in any possible way.
This friend of mine, mentioned it is possible, in some masters courses, to use work experience instead of bachelors degree... can anyone confirm on that?
I am trying to step up on my game, and make immigration papers a bit easier on my side at the same time, but I really dont see myself sitting on a chair and hearing "Ok.. this is Photoshop... this software does... this... this...".
your friend is correct. its probably best to get in touch with admissions
I'm looking at going to get my masters next fall, and I've noticed that some schools will allow one to get into a masters program even if their undergrad was not in design; they only need to be able to demonstrate a comparable proficiency.
This seems extremely interesting. Suddenly, studying again and saving off sometime, and getting a "higher-education" badge, plus more knowledge, seems brilliant again.
I am trying to find universities that would do that, around Europe or Oceania, that would allow that..
It would be even more interesting if your current gig would float the bill for your 'higher education'.
In England at least it works, depending on the University.
The missus is starting her Masters in the University of Arts London. Although they wanted her to finish her BA, some other universities (Kingston, MET, East London) didn't.
Oh, and for immigration purposes you don't list what you've done. You just say which university gave you an offer. That should suffice.
i can't imagine you'll get in to a grad program without a degree...experience or not.
not saying it's not possible, but I'd be fairly suprised and suspicious of those schools who said yes.
Maybe then, I have to go for the long 4 years road to the normal degree...
