Woolf University

Specific degree programs are accredited via the legal entities designated below, but all programs offered through Woolf meet the same rigorous standards of quality assurance managed through Woolf’s software platform, the Accreditation Management System (AMS).

Woolf University is a USPTO (United States) and EUIPO (European Union) registered and trademarked entity. Woolf University affiliate subsidiaries are legally separate entities, which are individually accredited at the institutional and/or program level in their relevant jurisdictions while sharing a unified Quality Assurance Policy. For clarity, parenthetical designators are added after the name “Woolf” to indicate the relevant jurisdiction or region.


Woolf (MT)

As of September 2019, Malta Further and Higher Education Authority (MFHEA) (previously the National Commission for Further and Higher Education (NCFHE)) has licensed Woolf as a Higher Education Institution with license number 2019-015. This license is recognized within the European Qualifications Framework (EQF) and allows for transportability of higher education credits and degrees within the European Union. Malta is a member of the Bologna Process and the European Higher Education Area (EHEA). Programs with ECTS accreditation via Woolf are specifically designated as such. In Europe, Woolf is a Higher Education Institution and is not licensed as a “university,” which is a specially reserved term. As a licenced Higher Education Institution, Woolf is able to offer bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees with the same status as issued by a “university.”
