I have checked other responses but in Scotland the degree system is slightly different from other systems in the UK and abroad.
I studied a Master's degree in French at the University of Glasgow. This included 5 years of study as follows:
- 2 years of study at my home university.
- 1 year of university at a French university.
- 2 year of study at my home university again.
Please note, I did not have a bachelor's degree/license before this study. In certain universities in Scotland we can obtain Master's degrees as undergraduates.
So my question: est-ce que c'est une "maîtrise" ou un "Master"?
I'm not sure if, given my year abroad, this would be considered BAC+4 or BAC+5? I would appreciate any advice as I don't want to be using the wrong term. (I can always include an explanatory note when I use the term but that seems a bit superfluous.
