The Accreditation Process and Frameworks in Higher Education will provide a general framework and models for the process of accreditation and evaluation for the higher educational system.  In this book we focus on the process and mechanism of the accreditation process focusing on countries like, Australia, Middle East, Southeast Asia, India, UK and US.  As an example, we are defining three accreditation societies for the book’s proposal, but we are not restricted to these three accreditation organizations in higher educational systems.

The Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology (ABET) is a non-profit, non-governmental agency that accredits programs in applied and natural science, computing, engineering and engineering technology and provides assurance that a college or university program meets the quality standards of the profession for which that program prepares graduates. The National Commission for Academic Accreditation & Assessment (NCAAA) is responsible for determining standards and criteria for academic accreditation and assessment and for accredited postsecondary institutions and the programs offered.

AAA, is the American Accreditation Association, recognized internationally by the US government to provide accreditation worldwide, AAA accreditation programs are based on recognized international standards that ensure competency of its accredited organizations and global acceptance of its accreditations.

This book will provide the guidelines and examples for the universities seeking accreditation at a national as well as international level.  The models and frameworks of accreditation can be followed by any program seeking accreditation in the field of arts, medicines, social science, science and technology.

Key features:
· This book will explain the required standards that a school/ program needs to meet  for minimum academic standards at local as well as at international level.
· International accreditation entities with credibility gained by accrediting prestigious academic programs from top-ranking universities around the world within the country of origin, and have been able to extend their activities globally, due to their well-known reputation.
· Explain the conditions and requirements for accreditation and methods of achieving.
· Illustrate the relevance of accreditation from student’s, institutes or programs and the world’s perspective and create awareness and importance of accredited programs by the recognized organizations.
· Provide general framework and models for the program to use for their accreditation process at local and international level.
