How we regulate accredited centres

Accreditation UK aims to give an assurance of quality to international students who are studying or planning to study English language in the UK. This is achieved by external inspection, ensuring that centres which are accredited through the Scheme meet agreed quality standards.

If accredited centres fail to meet the standards set out in the Scheme, Accreditation UK has a range of options to address these issues. The operation of the Scheme is transparent and you can read about the principles by which it operates and how it is governed.
