Once Accreditation is awarded a university will move on to a 6 year cycle of surveillance reviews.
Once Recognition is awarded a university will move on to a 3 year cycle of annual reviews.
The table below demonstrates both cycles and how courses both Accredited and Recognised can be aligned.
*NB for universities on the current 5 year cycle of surveillance reviews will not be affected by this year. All universities will move onto the 6 year cycle at the point of the next full Accreditation visit.
Full Reaccreditation and Recognition Renewals would then take place in Year 1 and the cycles starts again.
