The Council on Higher Education (CHE) accredits programmes offered by higher education institutions, and audits quality assurance mechanisms of the same institutions. The programmes reviewed in recent times include Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety from Botho University, Diploma in Film Production from Limkokwing University of Creative Technology (LUCT), and MSc in Sustainable Energy from the National University of Lesotho (NUL).
For the first time since revision of the CHE Minimum Accreditation Standards in 2021, a programme has been awarded accreditation with the highest rating of “Exceeds Minimum Standards” as per these Standards. The MSc in Sustainable Energy, undergoing accreditation for the second time, is a programme that got through with flying colours. It is responsive to the global call for the world to reduce carbon footprint, and contributes positively towards harnessing renewable energy. Having been approved in January this year, the NUL will enjoy accreditation status for this programme for the next five academic years until June 2027.
