About Centre for International Qualifications (CiQ)
C entre for International Qualifications (CiQ) is a leading independent accreditation organisation. Our objective is to provide affordable, high-quality accreditations to the courses and qualifications worldwide that are easily accessible to all learners. We regulate the courses and qualifications to reflect standardised awards in all sectors. We use a set of criteria to make sure that all courses and qualifications we approve are of the highest quality.
CiQ is working to improve quality assurance standards of organizations all over the world. With its global network of experts, CiQ grants accreditation to educational institutions and corporations.
The rapid growth of globalisation calls for a global entity which can evaluate them against internationally proven standards of education and grant them an internationally recognized accreditation. CiQ provides international accreditation to the education providers to provide quality accreditation, enhance the entity's regional accreditation and assures stakeholders that the educational program, policies and procedures of the institutions are up to the international standards of quality. CiQ’s international accreditation represents an education provider's commitment to delivering quality which is on a par with the global standards. It assures the stakeholders that their qualifications & credits will have increased acceptability around the world, should they decide to study or work abroad. The score that an education provider gets under the Strict Criteria of CiQ gives a competitive edge over all regional and international educational institutions.
CiQ also offers international accreditation services to small, medium and large-scale corporations. CiQ's international accreditation for corporations ensures that the organizations are operating according to the international principles and standards of quality. It assures the business community's confidence and trust in your business structure, management & performance. It also provides international recognition of your business and quality practices all over the world.
CiQ grants international accreditation through a strict quality assurance system that is developed by organising the best global organisational practices in one place. Our system is a dynamic and evolving system that is continually updated in order to cater to new developments in the academic, business and professional quarters.
