Students with 15 years of education

A big challenge faced by an Indian student aspiring to pursue their Master's Degree in the USA is the number of years spent in their undergraduate studies. All Bachelor’s degrees in the USA are of 4 years whereas all degrees in India are merely 3 years (Except professional Courses like: Btech, BArch, BPharm, MBBS etc).

However, the students pursuing Bsc, Bcom or BA can go for Masters by following one of the following options:

1.WES Evaluation

World Education Services is one of the authorized [ NACES [National Association of Credential Evaluation Services] Member and clearly states that Bachelor's Degree of any student having first division in his/her under graduation is Equivalent to USA degree. Click here for Details

Note: It won’t be accepted by all the universities or programs. Contact Leo Global for further details.

2.BRIDGE Program

Many universities offer Bridge programs to cover the 16th Year which is lacking, followed by Masters. Most of the Universities offer this program from Business schools. Some of the Universities offer it for Computer Science also.

3.Completing Masters or any other 1 year course in India

Many universities in India offer 1 year post graduate diploma under various specializations. These can be added as the 16th year of education before applying to the USA. We have also seen many students completing the first year of Master before embarking on an educational journey to the USA.
