ADSM Achieves International Quality Accreditation

ADSM is delighted to obtain global quality accreditation through the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA), the UK’s independent quality body and a global leader in quality assurance for higher education.

ADSM has obtained the global accreditation after completing successfully QAA’s International Quality Review (IQR). IQR is a rigorous process which benchmarks global higher education institutions against international quality assurance standards set out in Part 1 of the Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in the European Higher Education Area (ESG).

The review team confirmed that ADSM meets all 10 of the internal quality assurance standards in the ESG. Also, as part of their findings, they identified various areas of good practice such as:

  • Clear links between ADSM’s vision, mission and strategic planning process and the quality assurance system through all processes
  • Development and implementation of the ADSM Internal Quality Review process as an internal mechanism for ensuring the effectiveness and efficiency of the Institution’s processes
  • Student engagement through interactive, co-creative teaching and learning
  • Collaborative engagement of the Institution with students through the delivery and ongoing enhancement of the Academic Support Centre
