    How do you say Educacion superior in English?
    This is the context....

    "Did you know education system here in Peru is different from there in the USA?
    I guess I told you about it once. Here, you have two options for superior education:Universities and "Institutes". Both of them require 5 years of studies.However, if you want to get a Master degree and you've studied in an "Institute", you'll have to study 1 and a half year to have the same level of an university... I guess Institues here are like colleges out there"

    By the way, does this piece of tranlation make sense? Is it correct?

    Thanks alot in advance :)

    Thanks a lot!

    I have a question... what's the difference between Higher Education and
    Post-Secondary Education? are they just the same thing?
    Thanks in advance :)

    Hola,
    Higher Education generalmente es la universidad. Post secondary education es cuando uno termina los estudios secundarios y antes de ir a la universidad pasa por un colegio tecnico, o bien un "cégep" como aqui en Canada. Eso significa que uno estudia dos anos antes de ir a la universidad. En EU tambien existe, son colegios pre universitarios pero tambien se puede estudiar tres anos y salir al mercado del trabajo con una tecnica. En resumen, son post secundarios pues ya no son secundarios.. pero no son "higher" porque no son la universidad. Bueno, espero que eso te ayude.

    Post-Secondary Education -- toda experiencia educativa después de graduarse de High School (educación secundaria). Puede ser cualquier escuela.

    Higher Education -- generalmente, una universidad o escuela técnica terminando en diplomado o certificación.
