Accreditation

Accreditation via online distance learning – why do you need it?

Our degree is the only one worldwide where you can gain professional accreditation via distance learning. The Geological Society of London has examined our degree and given it “accreditation” which is the first step on the route to “Chartered geologist” status, a recognised professional qualification. You are likely to need a recognised professional qualification to gain employment in the USA, Canada and Australia and other countries. Details of this and links to the international importance of accreditation are given below.
