Oxbridge Academy Accreditation

Oxbridge Academy is a registered and accredited private college based in South Africa. Below, you will find the details regarding our registration and accreditation with various bodies in the education sector.

Why Is Accreditation Important?

Accreditation is a “stamp of approval” –  it indicates that a training provider measures up to certain standards set by an accrediting body. This means that, when you study with an accredited training provider, you can be sure that you are receiving an education that meets the standards and requirements set by the relevant accrediting body.

Accreditation plays an important role in education by:

  • Helping students to determine whether colleges and other training providers comply with certain standards.
  • Helping employers to determine the validity of qualifications earned from colleges and other training providers.
  • Helping colleges and other training providers to determine whether credits can be transferred from another institution.
  • Helping colleges and other training providers to implement self-assessment programmes to make sure that they maintain their standards and retain their accreditation.
