What is an accreditation?

Accreditation is a quality assurance process that colleges, universities and educational institutions or programs undergo to confirm that they meet a strict and recognized set of service and operational standards. It is assessed by private, nongovernmental accrediting agencies that have been created specifically to review education institutions and programs. When an institution is properly accredited, you are able to gauge its overall quality without having to conduct a detailed analysis on your own.

Student Reviews


Full of knowledge and useful information, suggestion for lesson plan and ideas for support learning. The knowledge, as mother and "home" teacher was incomplete, after this course I'm feel more comfortable in these topics.

It was hard work but I learned a lot. Because of this it was well worth it and I am well on my way to succeeding in my goal to become an English teacher in Asia. Instead of being scared as I previously was, I am only a little bit nervous now that I have this experience under my belt.

It was a challenge for me as it been a long time since I had done any academic studying but the course was structured well overall as the course progressed I was relating more to what I was doing at school and implementing them and seeing results I could see my self-confidence growing thru the course.
