ASIC and ASIQUAL Accreditation

About ASIC (Accreditation Services for International Colleges)

The GAQM is accredited by ASIC for commendable areas of operation. ASIC is an approved accrediting body for the purposes of compliance by the UK Border Agency (UKBA) relating to the admission of students holding Student Visitor Visas, ASIC is a member of the British Quality Foundation (BQF), sits on the Quality Standards Group of UK NARIC, and is one of a number of international accrediting bodies listed in the international directory by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) in the USA and is a member of the CHEA International Quality Group (CIQG). ASIC accreditation gives reassurance to potential students, their parents and education representatives that the operation of their chosen college conforms with relevant United Kingdom laws and offers genuine courses, which are delivered to appropriate standards with acceptable quality, and which lead to recognized qualifications with international standards. ASIC Accreditation also provides reassurance to the Border and Immigration Agency (Home Office) that the college meets their requirements for overseas students and, in general, does not harm the perceived quality of the United Kingdom education provision.


ASIQUAL (Academic and Skills International Qualifications) is a UK based awarding body offering qualifications which recognise both students’ academic achievements and evidenced skills.  All of our diplomas are designed to provide students with the essential skills they will need to progress in the workplace as well as the academic knowledge and resourcefulness to achieve their goals.

Our diplomas have been Validated by ASIQUAL which means that the measurable learning outcomes have been benchmarked at different levels (using Ofqual’s Qualification and Credit Framework (QCF) level descriptors) to allow you to consider the depth of study, difficulty, and level of achievement involved.

The diplomas are jointly certificated by GAQM and ASIQUAL. (The Hard Copy Certificate is printed on secure certificate paper.)
