University Program Accreditation


Accreditation is an independent external evaluation process that assesses the quality of services in order to encourage improved performance of an institute against pre-established and recognized standards, which aims to demonstrate its competence to carry out specific tasks. A robust accreditation – both for universities and hospitals (academic institutions and health care systems) – has three main components: an accreditation body, competence surveyors, and a package of standards; the combination of which make the system effectively guarantee the quality and safety of their performance towards meeting goals. RADA has a full package of accreditation services and counseling strategies for different types of health care facilities and higher educational institutes. Accreditation standards in both health care facilities and higher educational institutes are traditionally set at what are considered optimal achievable levels.

University accreditation

Accreditation in higher education is defined as the assessment of public accountability and improvement of academic quality and performance. An accreditation process evaluates / assesses the quality of an entire institution (Institutional Accreditation) or academic program (Program Accreditation) while assisting the institute, faculty and staff in improving the performance and assuring the quality of their services.

Program Accreditation

Program accreditation in higher education signifies that a program has undergone an assessment process and has met or exceeded pre-established standards for educational quality. Given the current local and global challenges in education, there is a growing need for programmatic accreditation and other quality assurance systems worldwide. Program accreditation focuses on individual programs while also addressing broader institutional environments and educational facilities. It promotes the enhancement of educational quality through self-evaluation, self-regulation, and accountability in specific academic programs. The program accrediting body plays a crucial role in ensuring the achievement and maintenance of quality and performance by applying pre-established and customized educational standards throughout the educational procedure for specific programs.

As a fundamental requirement for effective accreditation, RADA International has developed a comprehensive range of standards/indicators. We have drawn from core standards in the most progressive accreditation systems worldwide, and these standards are reviewed, adapted, and customized to meet the specific needs of universities by our professional team. RADA now boasts its own set of program accreditation standards that are attuned to the educational and academic requirements of universities for specific programs. When developing these standards, we considered the current global challenges, including the outbreak of Covid-19, which has necessitated more specialized education for medical programs.
