What is the International College of Interdisciplinary Sciences and why does it NOT have regional and DETC accredition? Why would I care about international accreditation?
Our programs were internationally recognized and accredited by the College of Teachers in London (located at the Institute of Education of the University of London) under a Royal Charter of both Queen Victoria and Elizabeth II and an international accrediting board. As you will note, at one time many American universities (example William and Mary) possessed some form of Royal Charter as well as did all of the colonies.
The College of Teachers accredited numerous schools throughout Europe and several universities in the USA including pontifical universities such The Catholic University of America, as well as University of California in their law program.
Last Summer 2015, the College of Teachers changed the whole direction of their Royal Chartered organization to work toward becoming a full fledged university and eliminated their accreditation program. We, therefore, applied to ACCREDITATION SERVICE FOR INTERNATIONAL SCHOOLS, COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES and obtained full accreditation. ASIC is a member of the British Quality Foundation (BQF), sits on the Quality Standards Group of UK NARIC, and is one of a number of international accrediting bodies listed in the international directory by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) in the USA and is a member of the CHEA International Quality Group (CIQG). ASIC is an approved accrediting body in compliance by the UK Border Agency (UKBA). ASIC Accreditation provides reassurance to the UK Border and Immigration Agency that colleges meet their strict requirements for overseas students and, in general, does not harm the perceived quality of the United Kingdom education provision.
It is a great honor to be accredited by this international body of accreditors who are respected worldwide for ensuring high quality academics. Their website address is http://www.asic.org.uk

The American College of Genealogy, Heraldry and Documentary Sciences is a branch of the International College of Interdisciplinary Sciences and is linked to the Escuela de Genealogía Heráldica y Nobiliaria of the Instituto Salazar y Castro of Madrid and credited to The Institute of Heraldic and Genealogical Studies of Canterbury. The school was founded December 3rd 1995 and is located in Bologna (Italy), via C. Battisti n° 3 - 40123.
The aim of the school is to teach with serious scientifical intents the main elements of genealogy and family history, heraldry and documentary sciences and to offer to the students of these disciplines a place where to learn and confront their knowledge.
