  • We also hold an accreditation with a UK-based organization called ASIC (Accreditation Service for International Schools, Colleges and Universities) and this is specifically accrediting distance education providers or online universities like Nexford University.
  • Acceptance of your credentials from NXU is still dependent on the receiving organization. It is the sole discretion of the receiving institution/employer whether or not they will accept the degree that you will get at any university.
  • What we ensure is that you can stand out in a competitive job market.
