EABHES Accreditation is a system that schools implement to guarantee that a study programme is of high quality and that it is in accordance with European higher education standards.
EABHES accredited Programmes strictly follow a student-centered system, which means that everything is arranged and organised in order for students to have the best learning experience and maximise learning.
Thanks to the quality control and monitoring processes of accreditation, students are guaranteed that they will be taught high quality updated contents by qualified teachers in accordance with current industry needs and trends. They are also guaranteed the best experience at the school because all the staff is trained to provide with all the resources, tools
and opportunities needed for your studies, and also for student life.
EABHES Accreditation benefits students in many ways.
First of all, they are guaranteed high quality education, which is, of course, essential.
Second, they will receive official academic transcripts and a diploma of accredited studies in
accordance with European standards. These academic documents will be a great support for
your future job applications and your applications for continuing your studies at another
institution, whether at home or in another country. In other words, accreditation improves
employability and the possibilities of continuing their studies.
Third, studying an EABHES accredited programme will allow students to have an
international experience during their studies. This, together with the English language
requirements, will make students competent graduate and increase chances of finding a job. In
a world that is more and more interconnected, having an international profile is key, whether
at home at a local company, at home at an international company or abroad, and EABHES
accreditation boosts your international career.
The European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System, also known as ECTS credit system, is a system to measure learning so that you can easily show what you’ve learned and what your skills are. The credit value is established according to student workload and learning outcomes. In other words, credits reflect the amount of work you’ve done in order to learn the contents and achieve the goals of your study programme. 1 ECTS credit generally equals 25 to 30 hours of work. So, for example, if you’ve taken a course that has 6 ECTS credits, it means that you’ve worked from 150 to 180 hours to complete that course. Thanks to this numerical references, it’s easier for students to show what they already know when applying to study abroad programme or another degree at a different institution, or when applying for a job.
ECTS credits allows to, on the one hand, accumulate credits to obtain qualifications and to
document learning, which will be key when applying for jobs in your future; on the other
hand, thanks to ECTS credits, students can transfer or continue their education at a different
institution thanks to credit recognition and transfer. Remember that the ECTS system is
recognised in all European countries and, more and more, by other countries outside of
Europe. By looking at an academic transcripts and the credits earned, companies and schools
will be able to learn what students know and what their skills and competencies are.
A program accreditation enables the adoption of international standards relevant to a specific degree that enables a student to transfer credits between institutions.
Internships are a great way to put knowledge into practice. EABHES Accreditation recognises
credits for internships and placements. Please refer to the Course Catalogue of the study
programme to check whether the study plan includes an internship. If it doesn’t, but interested
in doing one, students can enquire their school about the possibility of conducting an
internship and add extra-curricular credits to their records.
Thanks to the ECTS credit system, students can study abroad in Europe and in other
countries, and then transfer credits at their home institution. Ask your school about exchange
programmes they have with other EABHES members or other partner schools for you to

C1 level for Master’s level programme. In order to prove the level of English students will
need to present official English test certification, such as TOEIC, TOEFL, IELTS,

credits for it. If the online course is not included in the study programme, please ask the
school about credit recognition, as it is the school’s decision to determine what type of
courses and training can grant students extracurricular credits.

ECTS credits earned during the programme are recognised in most schools in Europe and
North America. The Transcripts of Records and Diploma shows the ECTS credits earned
during a study programme.
