Our long-term goal (although it is not required by the law) is to earn an accreditation recognized by the US education system.
Accreditations recognized by the US Department of Education serve as a certification authority for gaining federal funding, including federal financial support for American students (student loans).
Our goal and strategy is to offer access to high-quality and affordable education, that do not cause our students to be in debt. Our tuition is favorable with the added benefit of flexible repayment options, which do not increase the overall tuition. Additionally, we provide a broad option of different scholarships, which bring encouragement and financial relief to our students.
Obtaining an accreditation recognized by the US Department of Education is a long-term process, and we are glad that we have chosen this path because it guarantees progress and development in processes for all of our students, graduates, lecturers, and employees.
On the basis of the first accreditation visit and evaluation, we have received a few recommendations for improvements (for example the planned migration to a better learning management system, finalizing program reviews and more). We have created a schedule for the implementation of these improvements. Next year all changes should be implemented and we will schedule the next visit.
