"A" levels is a college education which is somehow similar to matura (matric).
No it isn't. Trust me: I've taught both.
You need this to enter degree education.
No you do not: a friend of mine recently completed his PhD and didn't have even an O Level to his name before that.
I have Licencjat in Economics from Poland which was translated as Bachelors of Commerce by sworn translator
Since when were sworn translators experts in the relative merits of educational qualifications?
MBA (for which degree is needed, which is Bachelors).
A first degree is not needed to do an MBA.
Generally Bachelors is 3 years after matriculation, so is Licencjat.
Three years plus two foundation years following 12 years of school. A magister is five years following 12 years of school (although a magister can be done in only four years). BTW, a lot of BAs in the UK are four-year courses.
You can also do Bachelor's degree over weekend or on-line, you just have to work hard.
Of course you can: it takes twice as long. The largest provider of part-time degrees in the UK is the Open University: they estimate degree will take six years (post A-levels) to complete when one works part-time and studies part-time. In Poland I know plenty of people who work full-time and still got their magister in five years.
The Bologna Process is currently creating a table of equivalence, Europe-wide.
That is going to be crunch time for Polish universities: how can they fit their hugely profitable extra-mural classes into the Bologna framework? Can they really get away with claiming that their extra-mural students spend an average of 38 hours per week on their studies while still holding down full-time jobs and having a life?
