ASIC Receives Gulf Education Award
ASIC were proud to receive a Gulf Education Recognition Award at the recent Gulf Education conference held this year in London. Chairman Mr Maurice Dimmock and CEO Mr Lee Hammond were there to receive the award for “Commitment to Raising the Level of Education Experiences for all via Implementation of International Accreditation.”
“We are very pleased to have been chosen for this award,” said Mr Dimmock, “especially since this is something which particularly highlights the benefits that ASIC Accreditation can bring to the overall educational experience for students internationally.”
ASIC have recently been highlighting the issue of internationalisation with the development of various Key Performance Indicators, aimed at assessing an institution’s global reach and international outlook. These KPIs are due to be rolled out later this year, and will provide an important benchmark for institutions who wish to compete in a global education environment.
Accreditation Service for International Colleges - ASIC
International migration of international students is now at an unprecedented level. No longer is this the domain of countries such as UK, Australia, USA, Canada and New Zealand but students are now looking at study options in Malaysia, Singapore, China, Ukraine, Russia, Greece, Cyprus and most of the EU countries.
This is giving the student a wider choice in relation to a range of subjects, entrance criteria, cost, types of institution and cultural experience.
The market is growing, but so to is the number of educational institutions seeking to recruit these students.
Unfortunately, the unethical behaviour of some international colleges is causing major problems for students, parents and sponsors.
The new ASIC Newsletter is now available to view online or download in PDF format. In this issuey difficult for students to get a realistic and honest picture of what an institution is really like in terms of quality, resources, student support and ethics.
Accreditation Service for International Colleges (ASIC), has been formed to bring this independent information to the student population through its accreditation service with well defined and objective benchmarking.
Accreditation through ASIC will help the student and parent make a more informed choice and will also help a college/university demonstrate to the marketplace that they are a high quality institution. More >>
