High School

If you have not yet graduated from high school, you can still list your education on your resume. Include the name and location of your high school, as well as your expected graduation date. If you have a GPA of 3.0 or higher, you can also include that information. You can also list any relevant coursework, such as AP or IB classes.

If you’re still in high school or have recently graduated

If you’re still in high school or have recently graduated, you should include your high school information on your resume. Here’s how to list high school on a resume:

-The name of your high school
-The city and state where your high school is located
-The type of diploma you received (or will receive)
-Your GPA (weighted or unweighted)
-Any academic awards or honors you received in high school (i.e. National Honor Society, valedictorian, salutatorian, etc.)
-Any relevant coursework you took in high school (i.e. AP classes)

College

If you are a recent graduate, your college should be listed first on your resume. If you have not yet graduated, but are close to doing so, you can still put your college on your resume. List the college you are attending, your expected graduation date, your major, and your minor. If you are currently taking classes towards a higher degree, you can list that as well.

If you have some college experience

If you have some college experience, you can include the following information on your resume:
-The name of the college you attended
-The type of degree you earned
-Your major or area of concentration
-The dates you attended the college
-The location of the college (city and state)

If you have a degree from a two-year or four-year college, you can also include information about your GPA, any relevant coursework, and any academic honors or awards you received.

University

University is a great way to continue your education while also getting work experience. It can be difficult to find a job after university, but it is worth it in the long run. University can also help you network and make connections that you wouldn’t have otherwise.

If you have completed or are completing a university degree

If you have completed or are completing a university degree, you should list the full name of the degree, the name of the institution, its location and your graduation date. If you are still studying, you should include your expected graduation date.

Some examples:
-Bachelor of Science in Psychology, XYZ University, USA, May 20xx
-Master of Business Administration (MBA), London Business School, UK, expectedgraduation July 20xx

Other Education

If you have completed any other education, like a degree from a non-traditional school, you might be wondering where to put it on your resume. You can include other education after your formal education section, under a heading like “Other Education,” “Continuing Education,” or “Additional Coursework.”

If you have any other relevant education or training

If you have any other relevant education or training, you can include it under the “Other Education” section of your resume. This might include:

-Professional development courses
-Online courses
-Certifications
-Trainings
-Apprenticeships
