Question Description
I am a graduate of Public Administration with (HND) Upper credit and I want to do my masters degree in USA, I want to ask did I need to complete my PostGraduate Diploma (PGD) before proceeding to do my masters degree in USA

I want to know how system in the United States works for those with HND certificate, with my HND Result can I proceed to do my masters degree direct in any USA university without passing through any PGD program.

I need answer to this question.


I think some American universities do accept HND graduates into their Master's programs. It really depends on the university though. They seek a 4-year bachelor's degree for admission into Master's programs. Since most HND takes less than 4 years to graduate, there is a very little chance that any university will accept you for admission without a diploma. If you talk to the university officials and explain them your situation, they can take a look and tell you if they can accept you for admission. I suggest you to find some universities of your interest and ask them if they can accept you.

The chances are quite slim since their educational system is different from what is obtainable in Nigeria and some other British colonies but I suggest you try the Scandinavian universities, they are more receptive and a point you might wanna make a transfer to the US. Take care man.
