Accreditation And Membership

 Accreditation & Membership is a process of validation in which colleges, universities and other institutions of higher learning are evaluated. The standards for accreditation are set by a peer review board whose members include faculty from various accredited colleges and universities.




National Council for Higher Education (NCHE), Uganda

Accreditation is the process that entails recognition and confirmation in writing, by certificate, licence, charter or document issued by the National Council for Higher Education that following its application for establishment, recognition or upgrade, a higher education institution has met and continues to meet the standards set by the National Council for delivery of higher education in accordance with the provisions of universities and other Tertiary Institutions Act, 2001.

For any institution to be accredited, the National Council must be satisfied, after a series of inspections and visitations, that the institution concerned has adequate physical and financial resources, viable programmes, adequate qualified staff and structures of governance to deliver quality higher education.

Institutional accreditation or permitting institutions to exist and deliver higher education, is a key tool of quality assurance. It is a process through which institutions are assessed at various stages before they are licensed.

It covers all aspects of institutions; including land, staffing, educational facilities, governance, financial resources and physical facilities.

In processing the applications for accreditation, the NCHE follows the provisions of the University and other Tertiary Institutions Act, 200I, which empowers the NCHE to make regulations to ensure the provision of quality higher education. Accordingly, the NCHE has issued a number of Statutory Instruments.
