What is IQR?


International Quality Review (IQR) has been specially developed to provide institutions outside the UK with an independent peer review leading to accreditation by QAA.


IQR tests whether an institution meets the 10 European standards of the Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in the European Higher Education Area (ESG).


A successful IQR means that you are officially accredited by QAA. You will be able to use the IQR Accreditation Badge on your website and marketing materials, which shows that you are accredited by us against internationally recognised standards.



Our Review enabled us to assure students and parents that all our programmes meet European standards. We are delighted to display the logo, which enhances our Institute’s reputation, competitiveness and global image.
