How we accredit institutions

Our accreditation involves a rigorous peer-review process, analysing the technical content taught and the processes in place to ensure effective delivery of the programme. 

Our trained panel of experts will work in partnership with you. Following a review of the programme materials and a panel visit, they will make a recommendation to our Professional Affairs & Education Committee, which is responsible for all accreditation decisions. Accreditation can be granted for a period up to five years.
