Hi,

I was wondering if someone could tell me what's meant by "Academic Qualifications". Is high school for example considered to be an academic qualification?

Thanks!

    Yes and no. Completion of high school is usually a requirement for admission to college, and so would just be presumed; one would only mention high school if one did not have any university-level academic achievement.

    So an academic qualifications would always be a "university-level academic achievement"? oh, I guess I still won't know what university-level is exactly :s

    Would it be clearer if I said "post-secondary"? In US English, the words "college" and "university" are used interchangeably. Indeed, in conversation with an American I would have said "college level"; I only said "university level" because I thought that would make it clear to someone from outside the US what I meant; apparently I was mistaken!
