FOUR undergraduate programs of the Far Eastern University received certification as accredited programs under the Association of the Southeast Asian Nations University Network Quality Assurance.

AUN-QA accredited FEU’s Bachelor of Science in Accountancy, Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, Bachelor of Science in Biology, and Bachelor of Science in Medical Technology.

Accreditation with AUN-QA signifies that a program adheres to international academic standards and is at par with its counterparts in other ASEAN universities.

“The programs were credited for being properly aligned with the FEU Learning Outcomes, the Program Expected Learning Outcomes and Course Expected Learning Outcomes, the student-centered learning paradigm, and the well-designed and updated teaching and learning facilities and equipment,” Aisa Arlos, FEU Academic Quality Assurance director, said.

Vice President for Academic Development Myrna Quinto said the AUN-QA assessment certification for the four programs is “a crucial first step in internationalization and standardization efforts of the university to ensure quality education for its students.”

“This puts emphasis on strengthening FEU’s benchmarking activities to achieve its aspirations of becoming a university of choice in Asia,” she added.

FEU said it aims to acquire AUN-QA certification for most of its programs, with eight more programs already scheduled for review in 2021.

AUN-QA is a group of Chief Quality Officers appointed by the AUN member universities. It acts as the focal point for coordinating activities to realize the mission of harmonizing educational standards and seeking continuous improvement of academic quality of universities in ASEAN.
