MFHEA Certification & Quality Assurance
Advenio eAcademy is a licenced Higher Education Institution by the Malta Further and Higher Education Authority (MFHEA Licence number: 2013-FHI-006 ). Advenio eAcademy offers both certified ECTS programmes and courses and uncertified programmes and courses. The certified programmes and courses are ECTS accredited. ECTS credits act as a quality assurance policy which establishes a point of reference for recognition and esteem. The recognition of credits enables learners to obtain recognition of the learning outcomes achieved in different countries without the need of re-assessment. ECTS is a credit system based on the learning achievements and workload of a course, a student can transfer their ECTS credits from one university to another so they are added up to contribute to an individual’s degree programme or training. Therefore upon presentation of the accredited certificate, employers will have a clearer picture of the student’s achievements within the national and European framework of qualifications.

Learning materials are written by academic staff employed or chosen by AeA, and are required to apply AeA’s standards. Procedures are in place to assure the quality of the programme development, delivery, management, systematic monitoring and on-going review of all programmes. Annual management reports are prepared to review statistics and feedback on programmes; Student Experience Surveys collect feedback on the content of the programme and system usage for further development of the overall service.
