What makes an institution accredited?

The process is carried out by external accreditation agencies to ensure that an institution offering degrees and/or certificate programs has the resources and necessary infrastructure to meet international academic standards. This is ensured through an extensive and rigorous process of evaluation of the following areas:

Institution's mission/vision Educational practices Administration
Faculty Financial stability Policies and student services, etc.
curriculum    

Institutions are expected to maintain international standards and are subject to review and inspection periodically. Accreditation must be verified by an external agency rather than an interested party such as the institution itself, its parent company or a student.

Our campus is licenced by the Dubai Government regulator, Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA). It is also regulated from Australia by the Australian government’s national quality assurance and regulatory agency for higher education, Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA). This double government-level oversight assures you of the highest quality, internationally-recognised education.

The degree awarded in Dubai is exactly the same as awarded in Australia.

There is no difference therefore, the degree awarded is exactly the same as conferred on campus in Australia.
