Overseas degree equivalency: table

This table was produced by UK NARIC for the National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL).
Since 2012/13, the bursaries awarded for initial teacher training (ITT) have been based on the classification obtained in applicant's degree or the
highest relevant academic qualification. To assist with identifying the bursary that applicants with international qualifications may be eligible for,
this document advises on the international qualifications and grades comparable to 1st, 2.1 and 2.2 classifications.
Please note that the methodology employed and subsequent recommendations contained within this document have been developed
to support ITT providers in assessing international qualifications specifically for the purpose of bursary allocations. Use of the results
in other contexts is not recommended.
It should also be noted that the recommendations apply only to those qualifications awarded by institutions that are accredited by the designated
body in the home country. To check whether an institution is accredited, please contact UK NARIC.
