Information Table

INFORMATION TABLE

Accreditation information table

   

Version 1.5 Produced 2013-07-31

This table contains the accrediting body and the type of accreditation awarded, returned in Accreditation.ACCTYPE.

Each accrediting body has one or more types of accreditation.

Each type has a code in Accreditation.ACCTYPE made up of the accrediting body code, followed by a further two digits. Each accreditation type will link to a centrally maintained descriptor and an associated URL.

Institutions implementing the Higher Education Achievement Report will be aware of the need to populate section 5.2 Professional status (if applicable) for their graduates. In this section institutions provide details of any rights to practise or professional status accorded to the holders of the qualification.

While the responsibility for ensuring accurate information in the HEAR in respect of the relationships between Professional, Statutory and Regulatory Bodies (PSRBs) and programmes of study rests with institutions themselves, the statements below, prepared for the KIS and covering both accreditation and recognition aspects, will provide a good start. PSRBs were given the opportunity to provide additional text for use in the HEAR. This text is provided over and above the short KIS statements and, where bodies have provided this, it is in the final column of the table. The additional work required from institutions to populate HEAR records should hopefully be kept to a minimum by this initiative.

Accrediting bodies that were requested by institutions, but were not included in the C13061 KIS collection, can be found in the 'Accrediting bodies not included in C13061 [pdf 201 KB]' document.

Below is the final list of accrediting bodies, sorted alphabetically.

Download the Accreditation information table [csv 67 KB] as a csv file. Please note that the csv file is available to download, however institutions will need to download a new version each time the valid entries are updated.
