Professional fellowship is a degree that is awarded to experienced candidates after their previous education and acquired experiences are tested and assessed by a competent committee. We have developed a system that depends on the testing, assessment, and equivalence of the candidates’ acquired experiences, as well as the measurement of the extent of the candidates’ proficiency and experience. The professional assessment requirements are different for each candidate based on the Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning to obtain a fellowship degree in the professional knowledge and experience documentation. There are many people who acquired work experience but did not have the opportunity to pursue academic majors at university in line with their careers and businesses as a result of certain circumstances. They face a problem of deviation in specialization or a major conversion with no evidence of academic specializations with recognized academic certificates. Other people started working after their university studies and became highly experienced; however, there are no documents proving such experience—only letters testifying to it. Such letters are sent by their employers, which are often local, not global, businesses.
Professional degrees complete the global education system. They are comprehensive and complimentary for all specializations. Professional degrees are the best solution for this group of people, as they are able to fill the gap between the academic specializations and professional specializations through the professional fellowship. This fellowship awards the candidates globally acceptable and recognized certificates indicating the documentation and accreditation of their academically and innovatively acquired experiences and skills. This enables them to move to global organizations and businesses at better degrees and to receive rewarding salaries.
