    I have seen a job application that says a 2:1 degree required or relevant experience

    I was wondering what other people would class as relevant experience to a 2:1 degree ?

    I don't think it means relevant experience to a 2:1. Instead it means you need experience relevant to the job you are applying for ie. have you worked in a similar job before? If so, then you would probably meet the criteria.

    An example might be a 2:1 in an accounting based degree

    or

    5 years experience in accounting

    Apologies

    That is what I was meaning

    What would people class as equivalent experience to a 2:1 degree
    3 years - 5 years - 6 years ??

    I suppose it depends on the industry but I was wanting peoples opinions

    I think the ad just means that you need relevant experience to the job in hand 'or' 2:1 degree.
