International Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (QAHE), registered in Delaware USA, is an independent, private and international organization which is funded through fees charged for its accreditation services to Higher Education Institutions, Certification Bodies, E-Learning Management System Providers and Training Organizations. We use our expertise to support the development of quality assurance systems worldwide.
As the accrediting agency has grown in size and complexity, the quality assurance systems have evolved and, progressively, tasks are articulated and delegated, with official certifications. Besides traditional higher education, distance education, vocational education and the need for recognition of prior learning are all important subjects in the field of higher education. The drastic change in higher education requires QAHE to enhance the quality assurance mechanism. QAHE recognizes higher education institutions for research performance, student services and teaching quality to value the confidence of the public. Our accreditation of higher education institutions is a voluntary and non-governmental process of quality assurance and institutional development.
Unlike conventional programs, many academic programs and professional training courses taught by electronic means can go beyond geographical borders and do not inevitably require a campus or classroom. QAHE understands the transformation in the higher education sector, therefore assuming the existence of a physical academic infrastructure while assessing institutions’ academic and teaching quality may not be applicable. QAHE accreditation status signifies your institution’s commitment to quality education which is in compliance of international standards. Accreditation enriches the profile of your university on international level, resulting in high student’s admissions and retention percentage. Through our accreditation, you may offer dual degree programs through our accredited institution, equivalency and legalization services to your students.
Besides, QAHE accreditation will give you an opportunity to publicize your institution at our website. The final award of QAHE accreditation indicates that the institution has achieved high-level specifications of professional and academic implementation in global tertiary education and has a commitment to continuous excellence. With our benchmark seal of accreditation, it would increase the credibility and trustworthiness of higher education and executive training providers based on precise and peer valued supervision and compliance. As a prime candidate in the field of institutional and programmatic assessment and accreditation worldwide, we offer a unique international accreditation with a focal point on the development of students as international citizens. Academic and professional credential evaluation is getting more important due to globalization.
