International College Accreditation

ASIC Accreditation for the higher education college sector is a voluntary, non-governmental process that gives recognition to institutions that meet established quality standards. The purpose of accreditation is to assure the public, students, parents and other stakeholders as to the quality of an college and its commitment to high standards through a system of continuous improvement.

It is probable that your college is already accredited within your own country, however ASIC accreditation confirms your commitment to internationalisation and, in particular, your commitment to supplying exemplary services to international students.

Our accreditation process consists of a set of key performance indicators split into 8 main areas, namely;

A – Premises, and Health and Safety
B – Governance, Management and Staff Resources
C – Learning, Teaching and Research Activity
D – Quality Assurance and Enhancement
E – Student Welfare
F – Awards and Qualifications
G – Marketing and Recruitment of Students
H – Systems Management and Compliance with Immigration Regulations

Accreditation by ASIC will boost the profile of your college and confirm that it meets high standards of education, welfare and good practice. Our international accreditation will reassure students, parents and agents that your college is a good choice, and that you will provide them with professional teaching, valuable qualifications and a positive learning experience.
