Uni denies accreditation problem, says audit on 8 courses done

Media reports had alleged that 800 students had been left in the lurch after a university’s accreditation was supposedly revoked.

PETALING JAYA: The privately-owned Limkokwing University has denied there are accreditation problems with its 98 academic courses, and said it had been required to resubmit eight programmes after an accreditation audit.

Media reports had said that some 800 foreign and local students had been left in the lurch by a private university after accreditation of its courses was revoked by the Malaysian Qualifications Agency for failing to maintain certain quality standards required by the authorities.

However, Limkokwing University said it had been required to amend and resubmit eight programmes after a recent MQA audit.

“The university was given 30 days to amend and resubmit eight of our programmes, which we have completed,” it said. The university said the accreditation of the eight programmes, which had been said to have been revoked, would be “put back on track”

Earlier today, at a press conference hosted by DAP leaders, former deputy education minister Teo Nie Ching said the MQA would generally refuse or revoke accreditation of a course if it is not run according to the syllabus or if the academic staff are not qualified.

She also urged the university to take corrective action and improve its standards. - FMT
