Are Alison courses recognised or accredited?

    With over 3.5 million graduates, Alison is one of the world’s largest certifying organisations. Our innovative approach to accreditation enables anyone to certify and verify their learning on any subject at almost any level for free.

    Alison works with subject matter experts (SMEs) from education, business, industry and government agencies, on every subject for which it publishes content. These experienced professionals use their applied knowledge to create the courses on our platform. We then open up these courses to the world for free. This direct connection between our SMEs and our learners allows us to speedily develop new courses and update existing courses in a fast moving world where knowledge isn’t static.


    Alison’s aim is to create universal standards of education and learning on every subject at every level. Our view is that access to knowledge and skills should be available to everyone regardless of nationality and should be a universal opportunity of empowerment. That’s why Alison is a non-institutional platform that directly bridges the gap between those with skills and those looking to gain skills.
