    Belford University
    Is there anyone out there who knows what Belford University and their life experience degrees is worth? I know for sure I have been receiving mails from this people since last year. Is there degrees really recognized anywhere? Or are they just another SCAM? Are experience certficates really valued for job search any where around the World?
    I would really appreciate this info. Thanks a lot in advance

    Can't say about around the world. But they have little if any value in the US unless you just have a hole in the wall that you need a framed certificate over.

    If you want something that is actually of value in the US, it will be to be properly accrediated. There are many online degrees that are, but those that do life experence will not be one of those.

    You are basically just buying a degree with no study.

    One added info, after looking into it somewhat,

    Belford University, Ashwood University, Rochville University are most likely the same company or managed by the same company. This was info found on various reviews of the university web site.

    Now I will say for mail order degrees, it was rated fairly good for customer service. And they did provide a certificate with documentation.
    So you will get all the paper they say you will. But then if anyone actually checks on the university it will be obvious what it is.

    Life experience degrees is probably not the right term to use here. These are actually called prior learning based degree programs. These degree programs are designed for people who have experience, skills, knowledge and/or talents they have acquired by working in a specialized field, self study, or as a hobby. The concept is to provide academic recognition to individuals who have devoted their time to learning and are looking for ways to use this knowledge to excel in their careers. These degrees are recognized not only in the United States but in some other countries as well. Since it is a relatively new concept, many people feel confused about it.
