National accreditation is the accreditation of educational institutions or programs by independent national accreditation agencies, while international accreditation is the accreditation of educational institutions or programs by foreign independent accreditation agencies.
Any institution with national accreditation can apply for international accreditation with one of the international accrediting agencies. The preference is given to accreditation agencies formally recognized by the institution’s education authority for compliance with quality standards and requirements.
Both accreditations are of equal importance in their own aspects, however, international accreditation opens the horizons for institutions for better commercial advantage, knowledge and language acquisition, curriculum enhancement with international content, and many others.
