In an ever increasing international education market EUAAB accreditation supports institutional improvement and increases transparency for students, management, government and international partners. Accreditation by EUAAB is independent and unbiased and the accreditation of institutions is undertaken by inspectors who have a wealth of relevant experience. While the assessment leading to accreditation covers the whole range of facilities, resources and activities of the institutions as listed above, there is a focus on the whole student experience and on the underpinning staff expertise. We want to encourage all our accredited institutions to become as student-focused as possible in their approach.
EUAAB accreditation is a widely recognised mark of quality achieved through an objective, detailed audit of your processes, policies and systems. We use a combination of self-evaluation and on-site inspections to measure success against our established benchmark. This process promotes improvement and ensures good practice across your organisation.
The EUAAB approach is not simply one of auditing and approval but part of an integrated approach to quality assurance in the sector. Our long and extensive experience means that we can help your institution show the quality of its provision, improve its performance and distinguish itself in the market.
