I think you might have misheard. Unless they did it in another country. It’s not possible that I know of.

You can sign up to a Diploma or Masters at the Open University and you don’t need any qualifications at all. However you may find it tough going if you don’t have the educational background.

Yes, some schools allow you to be a Master’s student without a Bachelor’s degree, if you have relevant experience in the field. For example, a professional audio engineer would be eligible for a Master’s in audio because they have been working in the industry for 15 years. Just an example. Many schools do allow you to pursue a higher degree if you can prove that your working experience is enough to make you a great candidate for the program.

I know that sometimes in nursing, you can go from an RN to MSN and the BSN is incorporated in the program.

Some masters programs will grant a bachelor’s “equivalency” when you apply…..that’s either based on actual experience (like the example above) or for the case of someone who went to college, didn’t complete their degree, but then took additional classes or gained relevant job experience that the admissions committee decides all together is the equivalent of a degree. In the latter case, however, it’s the exception to a required BA degree and requires a lot more effort and paperwork to get into the MA program.

Sounds fishy to me, unless she received a Master’s Degree from an unaccredited Universrity. Some of these on-line Universities are considered ‘diploma mills’ because all you do is take a whole bunch of on-line courses and crank out a ‘diploma’. It should not be confused with the many legitimate on-line course-work out there. They require background checks as part of your enrollment process.

Hope this helps!
