International Recognition and Accreditation

The IARC, like CHEA, is governed by the institutions it serves, but differs in its focus. Where CHEA has a national focus, the IARC is focused internationally.

What Does IARC Accreditation Mean?
Accredited courses have been reviewed and judged to meet a set of criteria determined by a body providing accreditation. In the case of the IARC, the criteria used has been set and approved by the member institutions and are endorsed by those institutions as being credible and in line with broadly accepted international academic standards.

Most ACS Courses are accredited by the IARC
ACS courses have been reviewed and judged as meeting the criteria of the IARC, and most are accredited by the council.
