I am coming to Thailand in September, going through the usual degree hiccups and have stumbled accross www.suffielduniversity.com who issue genuine, accreddited degrees with legal transcripts and certificates based on 'occupational training, military service and work experiences'. I know that although the legality of a degree like this is true, the foundation off it is bulls**t. However, how would the Thai Embassy in England or similar around the world view it?
Its how the school or the ministry of education would view it.
Too long in Exile, too long not singing my song.
Too long like a rolling stone, Too long in exile
Too long in Exile, baby you just arent my friend.
Too long in Exile my friend, Baby you can never go home again.
I thought they only busted the Kao Sarn ones??
Many Thai 'degrees' are gotten in the same way as the above one.
"Ka warea te ware. Ka area te Rangatira."
A verifiable degree is a verifiable degree though right?
I dont know if you would be busted I just know this is who would/might be looking at your degree.
Basically, yes. I doubt the ministry would take checking further. Too many snacks in the office for that carry on.Originally Posted by ScorpioPower
If your employer verifies it you're pretty much good to go mate.
Riddle me this brother can you handle it
Your style to my style you can't hold a candle to it
Equinox symmetry and the balance is right
Smokin' and drinkin' on a Tuesday night
It's not how you play the game it's how you win it
I cheat and steal and sin and I'm a cynic
If any employer "verifies it," he or she would appear to be on very shaky ground: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suffield_University
Many Thai employers on 'solid ground' then, mate?Originally Posted by laconic
That is a real university that offers a degree in a non-traditional method. Oops, you actually have to work to earn it, but you end up with a real accredited degree.
Just remember, people who use diploma mills are even more worthless than those who make up a fake degree. Why? It is just easier to spot the posers.
Wow, that would be embareassing, to be caught with a diploma mill degree, because the Thai clerk down at the office busted you by checking out your resume on wikipedia.
Am I wrong in assuming then that you are defending the use of such degrees for purposes of being licensed as a teacher in Thailand including the issuance of a work permit?
In other words, you are spouting the same mantra of "it's okay as long as you don't get caught" bs that has been written here more than once?
These life experience degrees are bullshit, we all know that, but try to make out as if they are okay. They are no different than KS Road in all truth!!
I think this bit from the web site says it all really.
"Accreditation by an accreditation agency recognized by the Department of Education in the US is neither warranted nor necessary to achieve its education mission. Suffield University does not seek Federal Government funding and has no need to meet this eligibility.
Suffield University has not applied for any accreditation that would be recognized by the US Department of Education. Nor would it qualify for such accreditation due to its non-traditional and non-resident international status."
In other words, they are taking money for nothing and giving out a expensive bit of wallpaper.

Such "degrees" are designed for desperate "teachers" and desperate schools. I am talking about desperate "teachers" looking for any job and schools so desperate that they care not who or what they employ to teach their students.
