Gulf Medical University is one of the UAE’s educational success stories. Since the year 1998, we have powered our way to a consistently high ranking at national and international levels. As a consequence, we are pleased to announce that Gulf Medical University has become one of the latest international institution to receive global accreditation from the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA), the UK’s independent quality body and global leader in quality assurance for higher education.
Global accreditation is awarded to international institutions who have passed QAA’s rigorous International Quality Review (IQR), which measures global institutions against international quality assurance standards set out in the Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in the European Higher Education Area (ESG). The independent review teams confirmed that Gulf Medical University meets all 10 of the ESG, Moreover, the assessment team found a number of characteristics of good practice at GMU.
“This is a fantastic achievement for Gulf Medical University, demonstrating that they meet standards of international best practice” Vicki Stott, QAA Executive Director of Operations & Deputy Head Executive
The accreditation of Gulf Medical University by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) is a significant milestone in the university’s history. Our institute had a great time participating in the process for over a year, with a lot of excellent outcomes.
