Candidates for accredited degrees
Accredited qualifications are recognised for the fulfilment of certain education and training requirements defined by an accreditation body. The choice of an accredited degree secures its acceptability by other recognised institutes and organisations and prospective employees. Accredited degrees meet certain qualitiy norms, which are recognised by other renowned institutes and organisations.
The choice of the study programme should focus on accrediation. An unaccredited degree could be of little or no value if prospective employer does not recognise it. Things to accredit? This can be either institutionally or specialised. In the case of institutionally accredited programmes, all programmes provided by a single institution are covered, while specialised programmes within a single institution are covered.
A number of institutions accredited institutions also host programmes that have specialised accreditations so that it is possible to obtain a double accredited degree. One example would be a degree in Harvard legal school. It is accredited by the New England Association of schools and colleges and its legal programme is accredited by the American Bar Association.
Besides the verification of the accrediation of a degree, it is important to define the validation of the Accrediation Agence. Do not take a school's eligibility requirements at face value. Ensure that the credentials authority is serious by comparing it to a U.S. Department of Education (www.ed.gov) listing. There are 3 different types of accommodation agencies:
You can find out whether the degree you have selected is accredited by visiting the school's website. As soon as you have the name of the accrediation agent, make sure that your degree programme is on the accredited degree lists of the agent. Alternatively, you can look for the school's or program's credentials in the U.S. Department of Education data base.

Being a member of an institution means that you can already take full benefit of these advantages during your studies. As Emily Bullen, who is a member of the Chemical Engineering Department at the College, said: "I only had to put 15 pounds for the time I was in school. That gave me time to listen to presentations, tinkle (an on-line engineering library) and The Chemical Engineer Magazines.
It may be that you will have to complete additional education or prove your job experiences after completing your studies. As a rule, a technical evaluation takes place before you receive a vocational qualifications.
