Revalidation of AA degree required to work in Lima?

Postby mmeyer73 » Wed Aug 07, 2019 8:08 pm

Hi y'all,
I have two AA degrees from a community college in California, does anyone knows if I would need to go through the Ministerio de Educacion process of "revalidacion de certificado de estudios" in order to get hired in Lima? (fingers-crossed) If so, what's the process? I'm still working to get my bachelor's degree online but I have to move to Lima asap.
Thanks!
:D

That's an interesting question. As far as I know, there is no equivalent for an associate arts degree from a community college in Peru. I may be wrong. What sort of work will you be looking for? It may not be necessary to convalidate the degree in the first place.

Hi,
Pretty much any job, I’m fully bilingual. I’ve worked for 3 years as an ESL teacher’s aide in CA so I might look into that. I also speak French, basic. According to the MINeDU the process of “Revalidación de estudios en el exterior” is quite long and tedious.....so I was just double checking before immersing myself into the Peruvian Bureaucracy world....
