This is by no means an exhaustive list of institutions which have not been accredited to operate and award qualifications. The Board will continue to add to the list as and when any comes to its notice. Please note:

An accredited institution is a Public or Private institution that has been given full authority to operate as an academic institution by the government mandated body.

A Diploma is normally awarded by a tertiary institution after a candidate pursues a course of study spanning one to two years.

Tertiary institutions include a University, University College, and Post-Secondary Diploma awarding institution, Professional body awarding Certificates or Diplomas or Professional Training Institution.
