Selected private institutions receive accreditation (Morocco)

In February 2016, 30 private higher education institutions submitted applications for accreditation. 10 of these institutions were rejected as they did not meet the required 400-student enrollment minimum.  In May 2017, the Ministry of National Education, Vocational Training, Higher Education and Scientific Research announced the first 8 institutions which received accreditation. These are the following:

  1. Université Privée de Marrakech,
  2. ’Université Mohammed VI des Sciences de la Santé,
  3. Uuniversité Internationale Abulcasis des Sciences de la Santé
  4. Université Internationale de Casablanca
  5. ’Université Internationale d’Agadir
  6. ’Ecole Supérieure d’Architecture de Casablanca
  7. ’Ecole d’Administration des Affaires, and 
  8. Ecole Centrale Casablanca

Accreditation of private institutions in Morocco signifies the equivalence of their qualifications with national qualifications awarded by public institutions. As the new academic year nears, the lengthy accreditation process has met with criticism from a number of other private education providers as they await their accreditation results.
