HE Bulletin - Spring 2020

COVID 19 and accreditation

Published: 25/03/2020

Covid-19 imageIt is recognised that the COVID-19 pandemic is likely to impact on programme delivery and assessment, and also the viability of accreditation visits.

The Engineering Council has therefore published some information on interruption to accredited programme delivery and assessment, which Higher Education Institutions with accredited courses are encouraged to read.  

Providers are reminded that a condition of accreditation is that they notify accrediting Professional Engineering Institution(s) of major changes to delivery and assessment.

We are aware that this is a difficult time for everyone, with rapidly changing advice, and that it is likely to be difficult for providers and PEIs to reschedule or adapt accreditation visits. We appreciate everyone’s patience and cooperation.

If you have any questions having read the information provided, please contact
