Why Accreditation?

accrediation-link-about-ub-subtab-about-us-main-tabUniversity of The Bahamas has inherited from its predecessor, The College of The Bahamas, a rich legacy of academic integrity. UB distinguishes itself as an institution whose faculty deliver outstanding teaching, engage in meaningful research and genuine service and whose staff contribute to the quality of its academic and administrative services. Students who complete studies at UB have seamlessly furthered their educational pursuits at top tertiary institutions in the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada and the Caribbean.

UB continues to build a strong reputation of quality. Nations flourish when a university, through the quality of its teaching, scholarship, research and service, produces individuals who are educated and able to drive sustainable progress.

In order to ensure best international standards, UB’s quality assurance regime and mechanisms will undergo rigorous appraisals and scrutiny by authoritative agencies and organisations.

National and Other Accreditations

The National Accreditation Council is a statutory body established under the National Accreditation and Equivalency Council Act of The Bahamas (NAECOB) which was passed on 4th October 2006, assented to on 29th October 2006 and which came into force on 28th February 2007. A working committee of NAECOB was instituted in September 2016 to define the criteria for accreditation and the policies, procedures and forms required to support the Bahamian accreditation process.

In addition to its pending application to NAECOB, University of The Bahamas will also be enhancing its international profile by seeking accreditation with appropriate bodies in neighbouring jurisdictions.

As the national university of The Bahamas, UB is desirous of confirming its mark of quality to all parents, graduates, employers and prospective students. The attainment of these formal validations of the quality of its product is another manifestation of the continued commitment to provide a world class learning experience at the University of The Bahamas.
