ACQUIN Awards a System Accreditation to Charisma University


On March 25th, 2020, the Accreditation, Certification and Quality Assurance Institute (ACQUIN) announced to Charisma University that the ACQUIN Accreditation Commission awarded a system accreditation to Charisma University without conditions.

The German Accreditation Council recognizes ACQUIN. According to this Council, “system accreditation is the internal quality assurance system of a university. With system accreditation, a university receives the right to award the seal of the Accreditation Council itself for the courses it has examined. In the course of system accreditation, a university must demonstrate that it systematically implements the formal and subject-related criteria set out in the model law regulation. For this purpose, the quality management system must provide for regular assessments of the courses and the areas of performance relevant to teaching and study, in which internal and external students, non-university academic experts, representatives of professional practice, and graduates are involved. A positive system accreditation certifies the University that its quality management system in the area of study and teaching is suitable for guaranteeing the achievement of the qualification goals and the quality standards of its courses. The University bears the quality seal of the “System accredited” foundation.”

Charisma University prides itself on this accreditation, which evidences the quality of education the University offers and the abundant resources the University provides to its students. Currently, Charisma University is the only University to hold this German Accreditation Council recognized System Accreditation in the Caribbean region.
