If You Study in Dominican Reublic, is that education valid in Canada?


Recommended Posts

Im just wondering because this girl i been talking to wants to come up here, but she says she first has to go University there in Dominican Rep.

She told me that the University shes going to is Internationally known

her plan is to study there for a year and apperently transfer up here.

 

1st of she harldy knows english and second, i dont know if Canada recognizes 3rd world country education... ive seen lots of asians,latin americans, africans who were professionals back home or Univ students and when they came up here, they had to start from the ground up again.

 

I always argue with her about it, but i think shes stubborn in thinking Canada will just let her continue studying up here... BTW. her sister did the same thing

but in Spain. It Seems its recognized there, but im not sure if in Canada it is....

 

I need some help, is there any links to any Canadian education pages, or does anyone know anything about this so called recognized international university ?

not from the ground up, persay.. they sometimes will give you a certifcatethat says what you got is an equivalent so you can find a job easier.. but you'll have to repeat everything, most of the time. even from 1 canadian university to another, they'll make you repeat.

it really depends on the university she is applying to, what course-work they will accept, and what they will not. she hopefully won't have to start back from square 1, but i'd be very suprised if 100% of her courses transferred over. she will also likely have to take the TOEFL test.

most universities in CANADA won't transfer 100% courses. infact, i dont think ANY of them do. You're also required a certain grades for them. I know my friend wanted to transfer from mac to uot. they're both 1st tier but still make her repeat some courses. Another did engineering at waterloo but wanted to ryerson but they wouldn't let him. transferring is no joke. it's an annoying process.

 

 

it's a guarantee that she will have to repeat quite a # of her courses.

on the link i sent you, you have to pick your country........ lol then they give you the info.

 

Requirements

(Argentina, Bolivia, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Mexico, Panama, Paraguay, Uruguay) Minimum requirement for admission consideration is the Bachillerato / Bachiller with very good/excellent results overall and in appropriate subjects. Applicants who have also written university entrance exams should arrange for these results to be sent to us with accompanying interpretive information

Test of English as a foreign language. If she's is not from an english speaking country, they will likely insist she take this test to prove proficiency in english.

eh, no, i doubt they'd make her go to high school if she is over 18! more likely, they will require she take the TOEFL test and make her take a math exam to place her in the correct level class. i think certain courses may transfer more easily than others. if she's a physics major in D.R., she might have an easier time transfering courses as opposed to if she is an english major or something.

 

if she is planning to petition that they accept certain classes, she should bring the course syllabus to the department and show them and they can determine if the courses are equivalent or not.

It all depends what you are talking about in terms of her University education.

If she's doing Medical School in the DR. It would make sense, as medschool here is so competitive in multiple areas that only a small percentage of people even get the chance to give it a try.

 

As for program and credentials recognition, it really depends on what she's studying, and depends if there are equivalents. In the US, you would need to write the USMLE to have your medical degree recognized. Canada also has its own equivalent.

 

Just let her know to do as much research possible. These are things that take up quite a bit of our time in our lives, and would have a great impact in the future.

 

Best of luck

I know Ottawa U has a student exchange program, and most other univs do too. You can pick any other univ from their list ex: Jamaica and they will credit you for those classes. They know ahead of time which classes you are going to take. (She could just register online to a Canadian univ and start down there, but if she's looking to transfer completely she might lose some credits)

 

Most universities in Canada don't use langauge entry tests unless you are applying at the post-grad level and english nor french (depends on which univ she is at) is your first language.

they will give you credit for it, but they won't recognize these classes as their own. you will get a pass or a fail. that's it...
