Recognized & Accredited

Accreditation is a quality assurance process that colleges, universities and educational institutions and their programs undergo to confirm that they meet a strict and recognized set of service and operational standards. Obtaining an accredited degree is absolutely essential if you hope to garner the career success you deserve. Accreditation is a process in which outside agencies evaluate a school’s programs to ensure that they meet applicable academic standards. Without accreditation, it is impossible for employers to know whether your diploma or degree is from a legitimate, reputable institution.

SIMI is a reputable, recognized, and globally acclaimed Institute of Higher Education that has successfully obtained accreditation at institutional, school, and program levels. At institutional level, SIMI is fully accredited by ASIC with “Premier Institution” level. All our academic programs are in full compliance with the European Qualifications Framework (EQF) and National Quality Framework (NQF). This ensures that all SIMI programs and qualifications are fully accredited thereby ensuring that SIMI graduates will have open access to employment and lifelong learning.

Institutional accreditation effectively provides a license to operate. It is usually based on an evaluation of whether the institution meets specified minimum (input) standards such as staff qualifications, research activities, student intake and learning resources. It might also be based on an estimation of the potential for the institution to produce graduates that meet explicit or implicit academic standard or professional competence (The Power of Accreditation: Views of Academics; Professor Lee Harvey, Centre for Research and Evaluation, Sheffield Hallam University, ENQA Workshop Reports, 2004).

Once an organization of higher learning receives official approval, students can be assured that the organization is in full compliance with the commercial quality and integrity standards.
