Our degree programmes are validated by the University of Chester and listed on their website (validation is the UK equivalent of accreditation in the US). As such, KEDS degree students also enrol with the university and receive a Chester award upon completion.

The British Government provides a list of officially recognised academic institutions on its website. Only these institutions are permitted by UK law to offer degrees. The University of Chester is listed on this site as a recognised body. Chester's website details its collaborative arrangement with KEDS.
