    Hi there,

    I’m already teaching for a language school out in the Gulf, but I’m considering investing time/money in a distance MA in order to be able to teach for a University (I already have DELTA).

    Does anybody know if Universities in the Gulf recognize DISTANCE or ONLINE MAs?

    If so, can anyone recommend any good ones? I heard that the one from Nottingham University is good, but takes nearly 3 years to complete, whereas the one from Sunderland Uni only takes 15 months. Is there a huge difference?

    Thanks in advance,

    Unfortunately the degree is not an accredited degree nor is USAT recognised. I took the course and degree program recieved the MEd degree and sent it to an credential evaluation in Canada received a reply in writing clearly stating the USAT is not recognised. My advise is to avoid the Degree programs. I can share the letter with any who wants a copy. Also tried contacting the Ministry of Education Monserrat regarding USAT several times but no luck.
