It is important to improve the quality of education and standards of the university. Hence, RMUTT has requests ASIC, accreditation service for international school, colleges & universities, from the United Kingdom.
As for ASIC, it is an UKVI and internationally recognized organization that provides quality assurance certificates for educational institutions by helping them to develop higher quality and to become internationally recognized institution.
