QS Stars and the QAA are internationally renowned accreditations that hold significant recognition in ensuring quality standards for higher education worldwide.
QS Stars is an esteemed educational quality scale that holds recognition from prestigious universities worldwide. It serves as a star rating system, constituting a pivotal component within the evaluation framework of the Quacquarelli Symonds Education Quality Assurance Organization.
The evaluation of universities within the QS system is performed by considering various aspects such as teaching quality, facilities, social responsibility, research capabilities, and international diversity. This evaluation process involves the utilization of eight groups of standards, encompassing over 50 specific criteria that adhere to globally recognized benchmarks.
The U.K. Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education is the governing body that awards QAA certification to universities in the U.K. and British higher education institutions worldwide. It holds the responsibility of accrediting and ensuring the quality standards of these educational institutions.
Universities that aspire to obtain QAA accreditation are required to undergo a comprehensive International Quality Review (IQR) process, which entails an exhaustive assessment of 10 key areas aligned with the international quality assurance standards set by the United Kingdom.

QAA boasts a membership of nearly 300 universities spread across the United Kingdom. Meanwhile, BUV has achieved a remarkable feat by becoming the inaugural and solitary university in Southeast Asia, as well as the sole institution in Vietnam, to obtain accreditation from QAA's IQR. This places BUV amongst an exclusive group of only 22 non-UK universities to accomplish this recognition.
BUV received outstanding ratings in all ten accrediting categories and garnered recognition for its exceptional academic endeavors, with a particular emphasis on three areas of excellence: fostering substantial employer engagement and connections, providing extensive opportunities and support for students, and offering a comprehensive personal development program.
Additionally, BUV holds the distinction of being the sole university in Vietnam to attain a perfect 5-star rating across multiple categories, including teaching quality, employability prospects, academic advancements, state-of-the-art facilities, commitment to social responsibilities, and promotion of inclusivity. This remarkable achievement further solidifies BUV's position as a leader among QS-starred universities in Vietnam.
