Discrimination Against Indian Graduates: Most Indian Bachelor’s Degrees Don’t Get the Respect they Deserve in the US – Here is Why They Should

In July the US Assistant Secretary of State for Education and Cultural Affairs Goli Ameri said “The United States wants more Indian students in its universities.” This will happen until more universities fully understand the Indian education system.

(EMAILWIRE.COM, September 17, 2009 ) Mumbai, India – US Assistant Secretary of State for Education and Cultural Affairs Goli Ameri addressed students at the Techno India Institute telling them to come to the US for graduate studies. But according to By Dr. R.Venkatachalam, former professor of psychology at Bharathiar University, India, it is not the Indian students he must address it is the US admissions officers who are not fully accepting foreign credential evaluations showing that the three year degree from India is equivalent to a US bachelor’s degree

In the recent past, a growing number of American universities have started accepting Indian three-year degrees, at least in principle, as equivalent to American four-year degrees. This was revealed in a survey by John Kersey, Ph.D., Amos Bronson Alcott Center for Educational Research at European-American University http://www.thedegree.org/ and Sheila Danzig, Ph.D., Career Consulting International www.TheDegreePeople.com/

This piecemeal acceptance is far from satisfactory and does not effectively remove the discrimination Indian three year graduates are subjected to.
