The NAFSA Guides to Educational Systems Around the World provide information to help in the interpretation of foreign grades. The country guides were originally published in A Guide to Educational Systems Around the World (1999) and have continued to be updated since 2008. Each of the updated country guides provides lists of credentials and other data that can be used to help determine placement recommendations and the possibility of transfer credit both for undergraduate and graduate admissions.
These updates must be used in conjunction with other resources to determine actual placement recommendations and the possibility of transfer credit.
There are more than 200 guides available, downloadable by individual country.
