Quality Assurance: Institutionalizing Pragmatism

Lawrence Lowell PhD

Internationalisation of education is a major force to reckon with in our generation, most importantly, in the UK. Traditional boundaries have disappeared and colleges are welcoming students from all over the world for specialised and advanced programmes. In this situation, students need more information on the efficacy of the courses offered, the quality of education and the reputation of the institution they want to apply to. Accreditation therefore serves as a buffer that helps students be discerning in their choice of universities and courses. Apart from the other stakeholders who have an interest in accreditation, the impact of making an informed choice is high for students, as their career and life depend on the education they receive and its quality. This article discusses the importance of accreditation in creating checks and balances that help students make an informed choice in their ambitions for higher education but emphasis in the United Kingdom.
