What is Advanced®?
Advanced® is the largest accrediting institution in the world devoted to the promotion of educational excellence. Through a rigorous evaluation process, Advanced® accredits institutions that meet these international standards of quality in education. Advanced® has more than 100 years crediting educational institutions in 70 countries around the world.
In order to be accredited, schools should engage in a systematic and regular program of self-assessment, supported by a plan of continuous improvement and development.
Advanced® has defined standards and indicators for educational quality, and accredits colleges that meet them. The approach of all these indicators is the improvement in student learning, and checks it with:
- Compliance with the improvement plan proposed by the school.
- Compliance with the actions required by the accreditation, for which there is a 2 years term.
- Regular cycles to maintain accreditation (every 5 years).
