I've seen the conversion chart on this site which indicates a mapping of various UK degrees to their US equivalents.

Does anybody know of any web sites or legal services that perform an official conversion of a UK to US degree for one (for a fee I'm sure) so I can back this up?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Here are a couple of lists of credential evaluation agencies:

Surely a degree is a degree, and was issued where it was issued (whichever university). How would you have it "converted"?

If the equivalent qualification is higher/lower in a foreign country, I have been told that one can get an official letter from a recognized institution stating what the equivalent qualification is in that specific country.

This URL doesn't seem to be valid anymore. Can you give me the name of the institution so I can search for it myself.

Thanks

I hereby grant you the degree of Bachelor of Science with First Class Honours in
Computer Science from Farrell University. Send me a hundred bucks and I'll even send
you a fancy certificate to prove it.

Do you think the INS should look at the certificate and say "Oh yes, you're obviously
eminently qualified for this job that requires a US 4-year CS degree"? Or would it be
sensible for them to ask for independent evidence that the amount and quality of
teaching that you've attended, and the rigour of the method I used to assess that you
deserved a first class honours degree, are equivalent or superior to that required to
get a 4-year CS degree in the USA?

32 degrees Farenheit = 0 Celsius 212 degrees Farenheit = 100 Celsius

Whatever you do, stay away from 0 Kelvin.
