International accreditation of programs is a must for universities competing to be world class universities. Adjusting to the demands of times and as an international recognition, UNAIR continues to push its programs to achieve international accreditation.

There have been 40 programs at UNAIR internationally accredited by various institutions. After passing the curriculum validation, the international accreditation process (self-evaluation and site visit) was carried out for Public Health bachelor’s program, Faculty of Public Health.

The Public Health Bachelor’s Program underwent an international accreditation visitation by Agency for Public Health Education Accreditation (APHEA) on Wednesday, October 2, 2019 at Campus C UNAIR. For three days, four APHEA assessors conducted a visit to FKM UNAIR. They conducted interviews with UNAIR leaders, faculty leaders, program leaders, alumni, and students.

From the list of accreditations around the world, UNAIR was recorded as the first campus in Southeast Asia to attain APHEA accreditation. This is an achievement for the UNAIR Public Health academic community.

“Gaining international recognition means we more easily attract international partnerships, especially for transfer and student exchange programs. Research and publications will be easier as well because we are better recognized.“



In this accreditation, several processes were undertaken. First, curriculum validation and preparing a self-evaluation document followed by a 2 and a half day visitation. Afterwards, we received our draft report and the result arrived around 4 weeks later and the result was full accreditation.
