About the University
Pebble Hills University is a truly international and career-focused university which offers online Bachelor, Master and Doctoral programs mainly for adult learners. Classroom-based programs are also available through our network of partners worldwide.
PHU is accredited by International Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (QAHE).
International Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (QAHE) is an independent, private and international organization which is funded through fees charged for its accreditation services to Certification Bodies and Training Organizations.. We use our expertise to support the development of quality assurance systems worldwide. As the accrediting agency has grown in size and complexity, the quality assurance systems have evolved and, progressively, tasks are articulated and delegated, with official certifications.
Besides traditional higher education, distance education, vocational education and the need for recognition of prior learning are all important subjects in the field of higher education. The drastic change in higher education requires QAHE to enhance the quality assurance mechanism.
QAHE recognizes higher education institutions for research performance, student services and teaching quality to value the confidence of the public. Our accreditation of higher education institutions is a voluntary and non governmental process of quality assurance and institutional development.
LEGAL STATUS AND REGISTRATION
PHU is incorporated in the Belize City, Belize.

There is no distinction between the programs offered through PHU and those of traditional campus based programs with regards to the following: your degree, transcript and other graduation documents from PHU follow the same standard used by most colleges and universities. PHU graduation documents can include an apostille and notarization from the US Department of State to facilitate their use internationally.
The registration under the International Business Companies Act at the Belize City does not carry with it any indication or implication whatsoever that this confers any particular standing to the course or comparability to your local degree program. The recognition of any qualification for employment purposes is a matter within the discretion of individual employers and institutions.

RECOGNITION AND AFFILIATIONS
Accreditation is a voluntary process and each college or university may decide for itself if accreditation is appropriate and necessary to accomplish its education mission. Not all the universities need to accreditation from any accrediting agency. Accreditation is only mandatory for those universities that seek Federal Government educational funding. In United States of America we have number of separate independent agencies that grant accreditation. All of these national and regional agencies of accreditation hold online educational institutions and distance learning programs to the same high standards that are held by the traditional “brick and mortar” institutions.
PHU is not accredited by an accrediting agency recognized by the US Secretary of Education. Note: In the United States, many licensing authorities require accredited degrees as the basis for eligibility for licensing. In some cases, accredited colleges may not accept for transfer courses and degrees completed at unaccredited colleges, and some employers may require an accredited degree as a basis for eligibility for employment. If a student outside the US wishes to carry out a particular procedure within a country’s Department of Education regarding their degree earned at PHU, such procedures are to be carried out independently by the student. PHU respects the unique rules and regulations of each country and does not intervene or influence the respective authorities. We recommend prospective students who intend to carry out such procedures outside the US to verify in detail the steps and requirements needed in order to be fully informed.
Instead of applying for regional or national accreditation or recognition, at PHU, we have programs that are individually accredited by discipline-specific accrediting bodies and professional bodies such as International Institute of Certified Forensic Investigation Professionals Inc. (Pakistan), Occupational Safety and Health Association (UK) Indian Board of Alternative Medicines, National Board of Professional and Ethical Standards and Certified Institute of Warehousing & Materials Management (Nigeria).
Our Management and Business programs are recognized and accredited by Professional Managers’ Association (UK), Chartered Institute of Management (Canada), Institute of Registered Administrative Managers of Nigeria, Chartered Institute of Public Management of Nigeria, Chartered Institute of Management and Leadership (USA) International Purchasing and Supply Chain Management Institute (USA) and Society of Business Practitioners (UK),
Our Finance programs are recognized by Association of Women Professional Financial Managers (Nigeria), Chartered Institute of Professional Financial Managers (USA), The Institute of Professional Financial Managers (UK) and The Chartered Institute of Corporate Treasurers (USA).Institute of Financial Consultant, USA
