Associate's degree is a degree, which is awarded after two years of study at a college or university. This term originates from the United States, but today the Associate's degree is also awarded in some other countries: for example, in Canada (British Columbia), Hong Kong, South Korea, Australia and the Netherlands. As a rule, students do not stop at the Associate's degree. After obtaining a degree, you can study for two more years and get a bachelor's degree. However, there are areas in which obtaining an associate's degree is enough to build a successful career. Some US educational institutions like community colleges only award Associate's degrees. Classes usually start in September and January.
