Accreditations, Recognitions and Memberships


Our exceptional academic standards are recognized internationally by a number of specialist agencies and industry bodies. On this page you will find information on some of our primary accreditations.

New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE)


Glion Institute of Higher Education is accredited at university level by the New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE). This means Glion is allowed to deliver its own undergraduate and graduate awards.

Accreditation by NECHE is not partial, it applies to the institution as a whole. As such, this recognition is not a guarantee of every course or program offered, or the competence of individual graduates. However, accreditation provides reasonable assurance about the quality of services and opportunities available to students who attend the institution.

Inquiries regarding the accreditation status by the Commission should be directed to the administrative staff of the institution. Individuals may also contact:

Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA)


Glion London campus is reviewed by the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA), an independent body that monitors standards and quality in UK higher education. Only those institutions meeting or exceeding UK expectations for quality and standards are allowed to display the QAA Review graphic.

The most recent QAA Higher Education Review commended Glion for the quality of student learning opportunities; and for the enhancement of student learning opportunities. The quality of information provided about learning opportunities was also confirmed as meeting UK expectations.

The latest QAA report can be viewed on the QAA website

The International Center for Academic Integrity (ICAI)

The International Center for Academic Integrity (ICAI) was founded in 1992. Its mission includes the cultivation of cultures of integrity in academic communities throughout the world. ICAI’s core beliefs focus on the six Fundamental Values of Academic Integrity: honesty, trust, fairness, respect, responsibility, and courage. These values serve as a touchstone for ICAI and its members. GIHE joined ICAI in 2022 to uphold and strengthen our culture and reputation for Academic Integrity.
