Evaluation addresses operational and curricular issues fundamental to the delivery of quality education and training, via the medium of online, distance or open learning. Consideration is also given to in-house quality control systems. Members are assessed to ensure that learners receive a product which is consistent with the values and policies set by the IADL. Course-providers are required to undergo periodic re-assessment by IADL assessors and evaluators, and agree to adhere to our Code of Practice.

ABOUT ACCREDITATION Global Ministries University is not accredited as the word is most commonly understood but that does not mean it is not a credible university. GMU offers thought-provoking contemporary courses facilitated by competent instructors who are required to hold a master degree and most of them hold a doctoral degree.
However, we wish to be upfront with prospects and would like to make it clear that GMU credits may or may not be:
· considered a requisite for entry into higher-level degree programs at other schools; · acceptable to a potential employer; . transferable into programs of other schools.
On the other hand, accreditation is not always necessary and accredited schools are typically more expensive. Global Ministries University has the capacity to provide applicants with quality programs at an affordable cost. Our goal to offer quality degrees to those who would like to prepare for ministry or enhance an existing ministry.
