Programme (Specialized) Accreditation


Programme or specialized accreditation is an external evaluation performed by a competent professional body which espouses quality standards for its profession. The evaluation focuses on ensuring that a programme’s learning outcomes, its educational processes and administrative practices meet the professional licensure or recognition requirements that permit graduates of the programme to be admitted to the profession.
