English term or phrase: diploma mill
Definition from Guide to Online Education:
Also called "degree mill." An organization lacking recognition by legitimate accrediting agencies which "awards" academic degrees and diplomas for a flat fee, usually requiring little or no academic study.

Example sentence(s):
  • Although many diploma mills claim to be “accredited,” their accreditation is from a bogus, but official-sounding agency that they created. Federal Trade Commission
  • The terms "unaccredited" and "diploma mill" are sometimes improperly treated as synonomous. In fact, there are a wide range of institutions representing themselves as colleges or universities that grant degrees but do not meet New Jersey standards. NJ Commission on Higher Education
  • These "schools" promise a fast and easy road to a degreed job but you can destroy your professional reputation for life by using a degree from a diploma mill, and that "fast and easy road" can lead straight to prison. Degree Finders

trafika na predaj titulov


Definition from own experience or research:
kym v USA iba neakreditovane skoly su diploma mill, na slovensku sa iba akreditovane VS spravaju ako trafiky na predaj diplomov... kedze na slovensku je hlavne statne skolstvo (ako pozostatok socializmu), tak stat si svojim skolam samozrejme ze udelil akreditacie. sukromnych VS je ako safranu, a bez akreditacie nevzniknu. a ked uz raz vzniknu, tak odobrat im akreditaciu je pomerne zdlhavy proces. preto na slovensku su to vylucne akreditovane VS, kde sa da bez problemov kupit titul. kupuju si ho okrem slovakov uz aj cesi a poliaci. su to aj statne ale aj sukromne VS s takouto nizkou kvalitou studia, ktorych hlavnym cielom je financny zisk aj na ukor urovne studia.

Example sentence(s):
  • to je moja vlastna tvorba, necerpam zo ziadnych zdrojov, lebo na slovensku tento fenomen este nema zauzivane oznacenie. -

tovaren na diplomy


Definition from own experience or research:
vysoka skola, ktoru zaujima viacej zisk ako kvalita studia, a tak da diplom kazdemu, kto si ho zaplati

Example sentence(s):
  • vychadzala som z toho, ze vo vsetkych ostatnych jazykoch, vcitane cestiny, sa to prelozilo ako tovaren na diplomy (obycajny kalk, ziadna vlastna kreativita, asi vlastny vyraz nemaju ani v ostatnych jazykoch), tak to chcem v slovenskom jazyku ujednotit spolu s ostatnymi jazykmi. (v odkaze sa otvori glossary, do polozky term sa zada diploma mill, a vyhodi vysledky prekladov tohto terminu v ostatnych jazykoch) - kudoz
