Accreditation of Short Courses
Accreditation is a voluntary method of quality assurance developed more than 100 years ago by American universities and secondary schools and designed primarily to distinguish schools adhering to a set of educational standards.
The German Academic Institute is licensed by the German & Ugandan Government Authorities as an Educational and Training Services (Students Facilitation, International Education & Projects) provider entity but not as a University.
Normally short courses below Diploma levels are not accredited. The German Academic Institute is known and in good standing with The National Council for Higher Education (Ref: NCHE/GR/DAAD/88-/25th July 2012) as well as the Ministry of Education and Sports / Department: Higher Education (Ref: ADM 82/288/01)
The G.A.I modules which were compiled by Senior Professors, Curriculum experts, and experienced active experts in their disciplines in Germany and ACP States, were presented to the European Union through grants of Capacity Building for Higher Educational Institutes like EDULINK I, II, Science, Technology and Innovation. These modules were approved as relevant and focused on the improvement of local “in service curriculums” by way of complementary “EU Added Value Elements.”
The Module profiles are aligned up with innovative materials which includes an Internship and or Practical Training Attachment (PTA) to each course.
These provisions are being made possible through the European Union programme for Capacity Building for Higher Education in Developing Countries (EDULINK I, II and ACP Science and Technology.
