Hello,

I'm finalizing my choices for University. I would like to know whether the accreditation is more looked at compared to none accredited courses. Bournemouth which is one of my choices is accredited where as Kent is not. I know that it means you get more industrial experience and the course is known for excellence in teaching in that course.

Does it matter? If someone could just clarify that, that would be great!

It depends on what degree course you're doing. For instance, I know that for Engineering accreditation can be very helpful, whereas it's pretty much irrelevant for Geology. Generally though, it's not that important. Accreditation could make career progress ever so slightly easier possibly, but I really don't think there's ahuge difference.

Ok thanks for the response. I just saw that it has been accredited but wasn't updated on the KIS.
