About accreditation

Accreditation is a primary means of quality assurance distance education and a significant resource for quality improvement. It follows a rigorous assessment of a provider’s administrative and tutorial methods and educational materials, to ensure that all Standards are met.

It is open to all providers of distance learning, online or e-learning, and other open learning or flexible learning courses. To gain accreditation, providers must show that they meet our standards.

Once accredited, providers are monitored to ensure that students continue to receive good service and are re-assessed at least once every two years.

Preliminary assessment:

  • To begin the process of accreditation the institution has to fill application having previously marked the number of education programs, the number of specialists as well as the main business processes. Application for accreditation is being considered in the course of 7-21 days.
  • Upon filing the application, the institution has to join ECICEL membership since accreditation is possible only for Accredited members of ECICEL society.
