In order:<br />
<ul><li>Associates Degree (AA or AS) - 2 year degree, generally in things like in automotive (car mechanic), dental assistance, and jobs like that. Also as preparation for transfer to a 4 year degree. (if planned properly, you can transfer into the third year of a Bachelor's program)</li>
<li>Bachelor's Degree (BA or BS) - 4 year degree, most common, in nearly any field of study you can imagine.</li>
<li>Master's Degree (MA or MS) - 1 or 2 year advanced degree. You'll need to have finished the Bachelor's Degree in order to start. Also, many fields</li>
<li>Professional Degree (JD, MD, and more) - general 3 years, can be shorter or longer. Advanced degree in certain fields, such as Law, Medicine, etc. Also, Bachelor's Degree is required.</li>
<li>Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) - research based degree, can take many years (more than 5). Bachelor's Degree is required.</li>
</ul><br />
PhD is thus the highest available level.

They're like an online school....right?<br><br>
I think they're ok.. but no more than that.<br><br>
If you have the time, it's better to go to a 'normal' school... if you go in-state, it should not be too expensive.<br><br>
What I did is to go to Community College for two years, got my AS, and now I am working on my BS (graduating next month). Since I am an adult student, my situation is slightly different, but the general pattern can be followed by anyone.<br><br>
The Community College here offers plenty of online classes, is generally fairly cheap, and gives good education. Then I transferred here to the University of Illinois, which is a well-recognized university.

Devry is closer to a trade school than a college as it only offers a couple of bachelor's level degrees. Depending on what you want to go in to, however, it may be perfect for you.

I'd personally go to a local community college... often cheaper, they offer plenty online classes (at least here they do), and you have the option for personal contact with the teacher and other students, even if your classes are online. About one-third of the classes (30 credits worth of it) I took at the Community College lever were online.

Are all of these levels the same in the UK? Going to primary school there (for 3 years) I learned things are different, but does that translate into the college levels as well?

I kinda do want to go to a "normal" college, I'm just having this meeting with devry to check out the school, to see what I think of it. I don't really want to do online classes as I'm more of a "hand on" person <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"> . I guess I'll just see how the meeting goes. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">
