IIE urges tertiary students to evaluate institutions’ accreditation

The Independent Institute of Education says thousands of students enter private tertiary education institutions every year increasingly out of choice, but other times because of limited opportunities in the public sector. 

IIE Director Dr Felicity Coughlan says as prospective students have always done when deciding on which university to attend, private students must be encouraged to similarly ensure they entrust the right institution with their higher education.

Coughlan said that once students know that an institution is registered and is accredited, they should enquire about the graduation rates, quality of teaching, the nature of facilities and what the connection between the working world and studying is.

“Quality is just as important as accreditation and registration; make sure that the value and quality of what you get once you register matches what you paid and what your aspirations are” Coughlan added.
