Life experience degrees are worthless. Your life experience cannot earn you a real degree.
We've noticed a growing number of websites offering life experience degrees in the last few months. These are websites selling degrees on the premise that your life experience could earn you a degree. The catch is that you also must pay thousands of dollars for the paperwork to come through.
As you may suspect, your life experience cannot earn you a degree outright. Worryingly, these websites are popping up more and more in searches for 'online degrees' and similar keywords.
Some accredited programs take your work experience into account in order to compensate for a lack of conventional qualifications. Although this would be in order to gain entry to the college, not for automatic completion of the program.
A degree, by definition, is an award attained through academic achievement - it has nothing to do with life experience. Employers do not accept life experience degrees. Aside from a novelty value, life experience degrees are worthless.
Study2U will only list accredited online degrees. We make every effort to ensure that we only list awards with high academic standards and the best career prospects.
There is no such thing as an accredited degree you don't have to study for. Please be careful and avoid these scams!
