QAHE offers international accreditation to universities, colleges, other higher education institutions and a wide range of other tertiary institutions, including providers of technical and vocational education. QAHE also offers accreditation of individual academic programs and other qualifications.

Institutional Accreditation inspects the internal quality assurance system and reviews study programs of a university. Each Higher Education Institution is responsible for ensuring continuous enhancement of the quality of teaching and research tasks. Our Accreditation scheme assists institutions to achieve and maintain international standard. All accredited institutions must enter the Continuous Perfection Evaluation process every five years.

Quality Assured Program Accreditation (QAPA) assesses Certificate, Diploma, Bachelor and Master degree courses and continuing education programs. QAPA provides recognition that the content and quality of the program has been evaluated and meets standards set by QAHE. We provide specialized accreditation for post-secondary programs. Graduates from an QAHE- accredited program have a solid educational foundation and are capable of working in the relevant industry.
