    What we do

    Welcome to ACAHE

    We protect

    Protect students and stakeholders from unethical institutions that make false or misleading statements about their curricula, teaching methods, and other matters.

    We defend

    Defend the reputation of real institutions, their staff and representatives, enable them to show that they can offer high-quality education, and ensure that their reputation is not damaged by the actions of a minority of dubious facilities.

    We ensure

    To ensure that staff act professionally at all times, that institutions are truthfully and ethically promoted and marketed, and that they continue to take responsibility for the well-being and education of their international students.

    We guarantee

    ACAHE accreditation is an internationally recognized quality standard for schools, colleges, universities and online education providers.

    ACAHE accreditation examines the entire institution in detail and takes into account many different factors, including the health and safety of the premises, the resources available to staff and management, the delivery of teaching materials, student well-being, qualifications and awards offered by the institution, and student marketing and recruitment practices. .
    Each of these areas is evaluated and considered when deciding whether or not to grant accreditation.
    ACAHE accreditation is not a one-time process and we are not just a control organization. Instead, ACAHE is committed to supporting the continuous development and quality of all our institutions. We understand that quality assurance is a continuous activity, and we are here to help our partners at school, college and university in their ongoing pursuit of excellence.
    ACAHE accreditation will also strengthen the profile of your institution and confirm that it meets high standards of education, well-being and good practice. It reassures students, parents and agents that your institution is a good choice and that you provide them with professional teaching, valuable qualifications and a positive learning experience.

    About us

    Our process

    Our process examines the institution as a whole, including administrative systems, teaching and course delivery, to ensure that the required standards are met.
    ACAHE accreditation is recognized by the US Department of Education, UK Visas & Immigration (UKVI), which is part of the Home Office, as a qualification requirement for UK institutions wishing to enroll international students (from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland) standard visa.


    Our expertise

    ACAHE was established to provide independent information to the student population and the wider world of higher education through a well-defined and objective comparison accreditation service.
    With almost three decades of experience in international education, ACAHE has a unique perspective on the global education market.
    As education becomes more and more globalized, the need for quality assurance is becoming increasingly important. Institutions must ensure that they accept real and suitably qualified students, while the students themselves ensure that they have a quality educational experience that enables them to reach their maximum academic potential while taking full account of their social and pastoral needs.

    Accreditation ACAHE is an independent and impartial and accreditation institution with extensive experience. While the assessment leading to accreditation covers the full range of facilities, resources and activities of the institutions, we also focus on the entire student experience and staff expertise. We want to encourage all our accredited institutions to focus on students as much as possible in their approach.

    ACAHE accreditation is holistic – it involves the institution as a whole rather than specific programs or qualifications. Institutions may therefore apply to ACAHE for accreditation, regardless of their specific discipline focus. The primary goal of the accreditation process is not to award a one-off mark, but rather to recognize and support the institution’s commitment to providing students with a high quality learning experience in a safe and supportive environment and to continue to improve the quality of education.

      Accredited institutions may use the ACAHE logo and ACAHE promotional materials throughout their accreditation. If an institution is revoked or decides to withdraw it, it will no longer be able to use the ACAHE logo or any related materials.
