UTAR is pleased to announce that all its programmes are approved by the Ministry of Education (MOE) . Programmes are due for accreditation when the first cohort of students of each programme reaches its final trimester. Most of UTAR's programmes have received full accreditation. For the rest of the programmes, when the time for the programme's accreditation arrives, UTAR is confident that the accreditation process will proceed just as smoothly and successfully as the other accredited programmes.

What does this mean?

Approval by MOE and MQA Provisional Accreditation
All of UTAR's programmes are approved by MOE before it is being conducted. This is a requirement under the Private Higher Educational Institutions (Conducting Course of Study) Regulations 1997. All of UTAR's programmes are also granted MQA Provisional Accreditation when it is conducted. Having Provisional Accreditation means that the programme has met the minimum MQA requirements to start conducting the programme.

MQA Full Accreditation/MQR/JPA Recognition:
When a programme is fully accredited, it is recognised by MQA , the programme would be registered under the Malaysian Qualifications Register (MQR). All programmes under the MQR are recognised by the Ministry of Education (MOE), MQA and JPA. In addition, graduates with MQA recognised degrees can continue with their post-graduate studies in the IPTAs if they so choose to.

When does MQA carry out the accreditation process?
Generally, a programme will be considered due for accreditation when the first cohort students are at the final or 2nd last semester of the programme. This is when the MQA Panel Assessors will carry out the audit.

Upon being satisfied that a particular programme has complied with all its (MQA) requirements, MQA will inform the institution that full accreditation has been granted to that particular programme.

What about the rest of UTAR's programmes?
All of UTAR's programmes are approved by the Ministry of Education before they are offered for study. Programmes in UTAR are granted full accreditation by MQA when accreditation for the programmes are due. UTAR is confident that when the time for accreditation of the rest of its programmes are due, the accreditation process will proceed just as smoothly and successfully as the other accredited programmes.
