uk logoThe Quality Assurance Commission has examined the curricula and syllaba presented and certified that this institution has met all the standards set by the Quality Assurance Commission, and that the Mexican and European programmes of Universidad Azteca are accredited and validated as aligned in credits to the United Kingdom Qualifications and Credit Framework and the Quality Assurance Commission affirmed the comparability in standards and quality to programmes offered in the United Kingdom.

The Quality Assurance Commission is recognized as an accrediting body for the purposes of Key Information Set KIS, operated and published by the UK government Higher Education Statistics Agency, and registered as `Accrediting Body´. An accredited course is defined by HESA as one which is recognized by an accrediting body and may confer membership, chartered status or partial exemption. Accreditation may be ‘any process of approval leading to assurance that a programme meets the standards required by a particular profession’. The Quality Assurance Commission complies with the requirements for HESA KIS registration as PSRB (Professional, Statutory and Regulatory Body) for programme accreditation. According to the HEBRG (Higher Education Better Regulation Group) one of the roles of a PSRB may be to accredit programmes of higher education, either directly or through institutional accreditation. HEPISG, the Higher Education Public Information Steering Group, has ultimate responsibility for information contained within and developed for KIS. While certain functions associated with professional accreditation are devolved to HEFCE, HESA, QAA and HEBRG, HEPISG’s decisions are final over inclusion to the list of accrediting bodies.

 ‘Accreditation’ is used in this context as a mark of assurance that the programme (or in some cases the institution as a whole) meets the standards set by the accrediting body. The outcome of a successful programme accreditation by a PSRB may include one or more of the following:

  • Graduates are able to practice as a professional in a specific field, and in some cases receive a license to practice that is required by law;
  • Graduates are granted chartered status;
  • Graduates are granted exemption from all or part of professional exams;
  • Graduates are eligible for entry to membership of a professional association or learned society;
  • The programme is confirmed as meeting externally designated standards and quality.

The Principles for Better Regulation of Higher Education in the United Kingdom (November 2011) were developed by HEBRG and apply primarily to organizations that have a direct responsibility for regulating or holding to account any aspect of higher education provision offered by UK institutions.

The PSRBs currently recognised as eligible for inclusion in the KIS are listed in the List of accrediting bodies
